From the same article,
"In a news conference, Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen announced that 50 percent of male rats and 70 percent of female rats fed Monsanto’s corn and weedkiller died prematurely, compared to only 30 percent and 20 percent in the control group, Reuters reported. However, researchers not involved in the study were critical of the Seralini’s methods, and cautioned that it is too early to draw conclusions about the safety of GM crops, Reuters later reported.
In a joint statement, French government officials said that they are asking the National Agency for Health Safety (ANSES) to investigate the latest finding. “Depending on ANSES’s opinion, the government will urge the European authorities to take all necessary measures to protect human and animal health,” they told Agence France-Presse."

Do you know which company created Agent Orange in the 1960s-70s?
Answer: Dow Chemical (Monsanto)
Do you know who made Aspartame so widely used?
Aspartame has been called the most dangerous substance on the market added to food.
Don't even get me started on RGBh, a chemical given to cows to increase milk production that causes cancer in the consumer.
