Prof. Séralini’s personal views should not be used to discredit his rigour. Or, in the same way [if the same standards were applied to pro-GMO researchers], it would cast doubt on the value of the previous results by pro-GMO researchers, including those obtained by laboratories interested in their dissemination. Surprisingly, these previous “favorable inclinations” did not seem to bother those who today are vehemently attacking Prof. Séralini and his article in Food and Chemical Toxicology.
