Over 300 independent researchers, physicians, and scholars—none of whom has financial interests in GM—signed a statement published in Environmental Sciences Europe that there is no consensus that GMOs are safe.
Studies done by independent researchers show that GM food is not safe when fed to animals day in and day out. The animals get cancer, kidney and liver damage, and more.
Independent research on the long-term effects for humans, wildlife, and the environment simply has not been done. Most “long-term” studies last no more than ninety days, though a few last up to two years—certainly not what most people would call a long time. Many are not independent. Each and every GMO requires testing, as they can be very different in their outcomes. Yet this hasn’t been done.
