We have all heard what the GM companies have told us about environmental and food safety using GMOs, now read the evidence-based research collected by top researchers with decades of experience in the GMO field. Have GM foods been strictly tested and regulated for safety? Do GM crops increase yield potential? Do GM crops require more pesticides and herbicides? Are GM crops needed to feed the world?
“GMO Myths and Truths is a very important contribution to the GMO debate. Written in a clear and concise style…I found it of great value in my own efforts to better understand the issues.” Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE
“GM crops and foods have not been shown to be safe to eat – and both animal feeding studies and non-animal laboratory experiments indicate that some GM foods, as well as most of the chemicals required to produce them, are toxic.” David Schubert, PhD, Professor and Director, Cellular Neurobiology, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, CA
