The Séralini affair is the name for the controversy about a particular experiment conducted by French molecular biologist Gilles-Éric Séralini. Séralini fed Monsanto's RoundUp-tolerant NK603 genetically modified maize (called corn in North America), as well as glyphosate, to rats and published results which claimed that the corn and the herbicide were toxic to the animals.The group's conclusions and experimental design were heavily criticized, along with its publication strategy. At the press conference announcing the publication of the paper, Seralini displayed photographs of rats with large tumors, and emphasized his cancer findings. The press conference received extensive coverage in the media; ""within hours, the news had been blogged and tweeted more than 1.5 million times. Lurid photos of tumor-ridden rats appeared on websites and in newspapers around the world..."" At the press conference, Séralini also announced that he was releasing a book and a documentary film on the research. Séralini required journalists to sign a confidentiality agreement before viewing the study in advance of the conference. The confidentiality agreement prohibited them from contacting other researchers in advance of the conference. The press conference and publication occurred a few weeks before the vote on California Proposition 37 (2012), which called for labelling genetically modified food. After the paper was published, scientists and regulatory agencies concluded that the conclusions of the paper to be invalid on the basis of the experimental design; each arm in the study had too few rats to obtain useful data in a lifetime study of Sprague-Dawley rats, which get cancer at a high rate over their lifetime. Other publicly funded long term studies uncovered no health issues.In November 2013, Food and Chemical Toxicology (FCT), retracted Séralini's paper after the authors refused to withdraw it. In June 2014 Séralini republished the article in in the journal Environmental Sciences Europe, which did not conduct any further peer review. Reviewers instead checked that the content of the paper matched the previously peer-reviewed version.
