''Those in the food industry who said there wasn't a risk lied, they didn't tell people the truth. Europe's independent food agencies now have to act. It is absolutely essential that we kickstart the debate and re-examine GM food. The new evidence shows how dangerous GM crops are for human health,'' said Green MEP Jose Bove.
However, some experts who were not part of the research expressed their skepticism about the findings of the study.
''There is no clearly defined data analysis and it would appear the authors have gone on a statistical fishing trip, ''Mark Tester, a research professor at the University of Adelaide said.
When questioned about the research EU Commission spokesperson Frederic Vincent said: ''If this is proved and based on sound scientific evidence then the European Commission will obviously act accordingly.''
So far, US food giant Monsanto that repeatedly affirmed its products safety in the past, has not responded to the claims of the French study.
