Ex-Monsanto Employee Removed from Science Journal that Retracted Study Showing GMOs Cause Tumors

By On March 30, 2015

The story of Prof. Gilles-Eric Séralini and his study showing that GMO food causes tumors in lab rats was reported far and wide, even in mainstream sources, but the narrative was changed when it was retracted by the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology.

That retraction was mysteriously preceded by the appointment of Richard Goodman, an ex-Monsanto employee who was named to the Editorial Board shortly before it happened, casting doubt on its motives.

Now, months after the republication of the Séralini study in another journal, Food and Toxicology is replacing Goodman with a new Editor-in-Chief, José Domingo, who has published papers questioning the safety of GMO crops. From one of Domingo’s papers: 

Critical changes have this year been made at the journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology, from which the Editor-in-Chief A. Wallace Hayes retracted the important paper by the Séralini team. The Editorial Board of the journal [19] now has a new Editor-in-Chief, José L. Domingo, who has published papers showing that safety of GM crops is not an established fact; and the Editorial Board no longer includes Richard Goodman, the ex-Monsanto employee who became Associate Editor for Biotechnology not long before the Séralini paper was retracted.”

According to this article from Global Research, the pro-Biotech editor A. Wallace Hayes will also be replaced by the journal, which of course begs the question: What would have happened had these two strong pro-GMO influences not been on the board at the time of the Séralini retraction?
