  • David Tribe: Séralini's Latest: Will History Repeat Itself?
  • Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des aliments (AFSSA) {French}
      • Conclusions 1 and 4 read:
      • “1. The conclusions are solely based upon in vitro tests on non-validated, non-representative cellular models (in particular tumour or transformed cells) that are directly exposed to extremely high concentrations of substances under growing conditions that do not respect normal physiological conditions. [...]”
      • “4. The authors over-interpret their results in relation to potential consequences on human health, in particular on the basis of an unsubstantiated in vitro-in vivo extrapolation. [...] the concentrations used in these tests would imply a huge exposure to glyphosate to obtain such cytotoxic effects on humans.”
