Monsanto Releases GM Corn Data

Recently, Monsanto released its data files for GM maize or corn and those files are behemoth: 491 Mb! The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is making that data available to the public on its website HERE. Be forewarned that it takes about an hour to download the files, which I did not do. The data concerns maize (corn) NK603 and is part of EFSA’s commitment to transparency and openness.

EFSA Executive Director Catherine Geslain-Lanéelle said:

Risk assessment is an evolving science and EFSA is always willing to review its past work should new robust science bring a new perspective to any of the Authority’s previous findings. With the launch of today’s initiative that aims to make data used in risk assessment publicly available, EFSA will help scientists from different areas of expertise develop research that can ultimately enrich academic literature and provide valuable new perspectives that can be included in risk assessments. This will make the conclusions of risk assessments even stronger when ensuring public health protection and further build confidence in EFSA’s work. [1]

Not having read the 491 Mb data, this author cannot make any comment regarding it. However, for those who wish to know more about what Monsanto is declaring and making public, you may be interested in obtaining that information.

The corn in the data released by Monsanto is the same variety Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini, PhD, and his researchers at CRIIGEN used in their two-year study of rats fed Monsanto-produced NK603 GM corn. I found this amusing cartoon created about GM-fed rats, which shows photographs of the tumor-laden mice from the Seralini, et al. study.
