Science Not Yet Settled On Safety Of GMO Foods

According to an article at the Brad Blog by Earnist A. Canning, a group of concerned scientists in Europe say that of the studies that have been done on GMO's, most were done by the GMO industry itself. He says they are concerned that more studies need to be done. From the brad blog:

ENSSER challenges the methodology of such studies, noting that studies which involve "one group of animals fed GM food and another ¦an equivalent non-GM diet" are "rare." The rare studies that did apply such rigorous scientific methodology "have revealed toxic effects or signs of toxicity in GM-fed animals."

"The concerns raised by these studies," the ENSSER scientists say, "have not been followed up by targeted research that could confirm or refute the initial findings."

The group further decries the absence of "epidemiological studies investigating potential effects of GM food consumption on human health." The report asserts: "Claims that scientific and governmental bodies endorse GMO safety are exaggerated and Inaccurate."

Canning says that studies called "A decade of EU-funded GMO research (2001-2010)"  were a research project and not intended to show the safety of any single GM food. He said they were designed to develop safety assessment approaches.

  1. Sadly "science" has been hijacked by corporate and government (aka fascist) interests. If you start to reveal too much truth then your funding gets threatened or being discredited, even attacked personally becomes an issue.

    Here is a good Russia Today story on a study with tumors in the GMO fed rats.
