sirex as the author of the study says in this interview:
monsanto & other gm producers Test their products for a whopping 3months & then say its safe.. no other independant testing is done to verify.
so this guy says they tested for 2 years the life cycle of the rats.
And I wouldn't be surprised to find out that these are the same type of rats that monsatan used for only 3months to say their product, that they make billions off of, is Safe...
MONSANTO & THE MEDIA:
BOYCOTT MONSANTO PRODUCTS
by Elaine Hollingsworth
Since my book was first published, I have been asked thousands of times why our crusade has not received more media attention. There is a simple reason for this --- CENSORSHIP --- and a perfect example is the case of investigative journalists, husband and wife team Jane Acre and Steve Wilson.
These courageous television reporters exposed the truth about what Monsanto Chemical Company is doing to the milk in Florida , and were shot down by the Murdoch press. During several months of intensive research, they learned that almost all of the milk produced in Florida comes from cows injected with Monsanto's Posilac, a recombinant bovine growth hormone, which is banned in many countries, due to its strong links with cancer.
They wrote about the Canadian government regulators who charged that Monsanto offered them millions in bribes for approval of Posilac without testing. Further, Acre and Wilson documented a "revolving door between Monsanto and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)", and traced the money trail to the University of Florida , which received millions in research grants and gifts. Surprise, surprise, the University then recommended Posilac's use.
Monsanto, in my opinion the most evil multinational on Earth (so sue me, I'm one of tens of millions who feel this way), is so rich and powerful that before their program was set to air, Acre and Wilson were told it had been pulled from the Murdoch-owned TV station, WTTV.
The good news is that Acre and Wilson have filed a lawsuit under the Whistleblowers Act, charging that WTVT bowed to pressure from Monsanto, killing their four-part series, which could have saved countless lives. This backfired on the egregious Monsanto, because they received dreadful press due to this lawsuit. But do they care? I don't think so: they amass billions every year in spite of being the most hated company on Earth.
The most telling comment in this sorry tale of greed and corruption is what Fox Vice President and WTVT General Manager, David Boylan, told reporters:
"WE PAID $3 BILLION FOR THESE TELEVISION STATIONS. WE'LL
TELL YOU WHAT THE NEWS IS. THE NEWS IS WHAT WE SAY IT IS."
Oh, yeah? Is that our future -- to be told by Monsanto and many other polluting, poisoning multinationals, and press czars such as Rupert Murdoch, what is good for our health and for the health of our planet?
In case you still have some lingering faith in your national newspaper, or local rag, bear in mind that eight corporations control more than 70% of the world's media. And that means not just television, but radio, newspapers, magazines, cable, theatre chains, publishing houses, film production (unless financed by the gutsy Michael Moore), satellite systems and theme parks. Yes, even Mickey Mouse is not immune!
