    there's a pretty consistent increase in the number of animals developing tumors across the treated classes, compared with the controls. Is that what you'd expect as a multiple-hypothesis-generated type 1 error?

      random noise.

      Most of the treated groups were fed Roundup. They said there was no dose-response with the GMO feed alone.

      Roundup is supposed to be completely safe because animals don't have the enzyme it inhibits. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that it really does have significant toxicity, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Monsanto knows that.

      Proteins are normally digested to amino acids in the gut, so it shouldn't matter what ones you ingest. I am allergic to gluten so I am well aware that there are a few exceptions, but we typically eat hundreds of thousands of different proteins every day. The handful that actually cause problems are a minute fraction.
