Corporations like to defend GMOs in a number of ways, but my favorite argument is that GMOs have been proven safe. The fact is that genetically modified organisms (GMO) in our food has never been proven safe in any long-term study.
In honor of non-GMO month, folks from the Institute for Responsible Technology have shared a great film with us, Scientists Under Attack, and a lot of information to go with it.
Yeah, if you haven’t worried about GMOs up until now, that headline might have you doing so. Unfortunately, it’s true.
A new review of the scientific literature on GMOs published in the journal Environmental Sciences Europe reports that numerous scientific studies have found a link between the most common GMOs (in particular, GM corn and soybeans) and severe organ problems in rats and mice. Data from several independent studies “indicate liver and kidney problems as end points of GMO diet effects,” the authors write.
