Trust in the Power of Nature
We all agree the letters GMO give us a reason to question what we are really eating. It’s a hot topic all around the world. And the European countries have been looking at this topic more closely than the US.
Documents reveal the specifics of the case… the former chairman of Biomolecular Engineering was accused of libel, defamation, and forgery against Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini, and his team of researchers.
The French court agreed, in this momentous court decision, that the actions of Marc Fallous, Chairman of Biomolecular Engineering, against Séralini and his co-workers in their studies on Monsanto products, including GM corn, were unlawful.
Was French Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini correct when he discovered that scientific feeding experiments past 90 days with GMO food and rats can cause serious health problems including tumors?
The answer to that question has been debated ever since the initial publication of his study, culminating in a republication of the study in another peer-reviewed journal that wasn’t nearly as well covered as the initial retraction was by the mainstream media.
Now, Prof. Séralini is in the news again – this time for winning a major court victory in a libel trial that represents the second court victory for Séralini and his team in less than a month.
On November 25, the High Court in Paris indicted Marc Fallous, the former chairman of France’s Biomolecular Engineering Commission, for “forgery” and the “use of forgery.” The details of the case have not been officially released.
But according to this article from the Séralini website, Fallous used or copied the signature of a scientist whose name was used, without his agreement, to argue that Séralini and his co-workers were wrong in their studies on Monsanto products, including GM corn.
A sentencing for Fallous is expected in June 2016.
This was the second such court victory for the professor’s team, following a November 6 victory in a defamation lawsuit over an article in the French Marianne magazine which categorized the Séralini team research as “scientific fraud (you can read more about the case here).”
