***Meta-analysis of data from GM maize fails reality check***

In a meta-analysis, Pellegrino et al (2018) claim to have found evidence that GM maize performs better than conventional maize in regard to higher yield and lower concentrations of mycotoxins. Further, it is claimed that non-target organisms are not affected by the toxins produced in the GM maize. These findings appeared in the media, but an analysis by Testbiotech shows that the publication is flawed due to bias in data selection.

Hier meine vorläufige Lösung für die Überschrift: "GV-Mais: Täuschung der Verbraucher durch fehlerhafte Metastudie".

Aber "Täuschung" ist wahrscheinlich zu stark, da ja die Wissenschaftlicher (wenn ich es richtig verstanden habe) keine schlechten Absichten hatten, sondern einfach nur unsauber gearbeitet haben. Hat jemand eine bessere Idee?
