It lives! Paper claiming “GM food causes cancer tumours” republished

Retraction Watch reports that a paper by Séralini and colleagues, which was published, criticized roundly multiple times, then retracted by the editor, has found a new home in a new journal. As with the first round, there are extremely weird publicity practices in play here, reported at Embargo Watch.

My biggest complaint in the previous round, disclosing conflicts of interest from a book and movie about this research, has not been addressed in the new paper.

This is an interesting turn of events.
