This article discusses the growing number of scientists signing up to express concern about GMO foods. I quote:
On October 21, 2013, the European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility (ENSSER) posted a statement, “No scientific consensus on GMO safety”, to let the world know there are some very bright minds with very real oppositions to genetically modified organisms. In the short time that it’s been live, the number of signatures on the statement has grown considerably to 231, including one scientist who helped to commercialize the first GM food, the Flavr Savr tomato.
End of quote.
The proponents for GMO tend to say that there is no evidence against them. Even if this is true, it is looking at the game backwards. The impact of genetically modifying natural organisms is unknown when it comes to their impact on other life forms such as us. So, it is a case where guilty until proven innocent should be the measure, not innocent until proven guilty.
In other words, until there are independent (i.e. not funded or controlled by Monsanto and its cohorts), peer-reviewed studies showing they have no negative effects upon human and other life forms, then they should NOT be in the food chain. Einstein said, “God does not play dice with the world”. What makes us think we have that right?
