      position as to the veracity of the Seralini study and leaves the question open as to its value. What is interesting is the nature of the response to it and the fact that the journal did not retract it especially given "the inflammatory images of tumorous rats."

      Subsequently, an orchestrated campaign was launched to discredit the study in the media and persuade the journal to retract it. Many of those who wrote letters to FCT (which is published by Elsevier) had conflicts of interest with the GM industry and its lobby groups, though these were not publicly disclosed.
