Let f: XY be a dominant morphism from an irreducible, nonsingular algebraic variety X to an algebraic variety Y, such that the field extension f*: k(Y) → k(X) between the rational function fields is separable and k(Y) is algebraically closed in k(X). Then there exists a nonempty open subset V ⊂ Y such that for every y E V the fiber f −1(y) is geometrically integral.
