A recent title on a What’s Hot post screamed, “Shock findings in new GMO study: Rats fed lifetime of GM corn grow horrifying tumors, 70% of females die early”. Contrast this to more measured rebuttals, as in this Forbes magazine headline, “Monsanto’s GM Corn And Cancer In Rats: Real Scientists Deeply Unimpressed. Politics Not Science Perhaps?”
Confused by the competing headlines? Tune in to the SSHOw this Sunday at 2 pm EDT where we roundup a panel of scientists to dig deep into facts and get to the dirt on this controversial study. Joining the curators (Allison Sekuler, Rajini Rao, Chad Haney and Robby Bowles) will be Alan McHughen, Professor of Plant Sciences at the University of California, Riverside and author of the award winning book, ‘Pandora’s Picnic Basket; The Potential and Hazards of Genetically Modified Foods’ .
