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

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion, the users will be able to:

1. Discuss three major myths: GM foods have been extensively studied and are safe to eat, GM crops increase yield potential, and GM crops are needed to feed the world.

2. Identify how GM crops increase the use of pesticides and herbicides on foods.

3. More clearly understand and discuss the impact of GM foods and farming with patients and colleagues.

4. Draw their own conclusions about GM foods based upon the most current animal and human studies available.

Why we chose this book

These three authors are well-respected in their fields and two have conducted evidence-based research on GMOs for decades. I feel too much of our information on GM foods comes from industries that will benefit most from adoption. Therefore, I felt this book that discusses what we are told against what evidence-based research shows pro and con is long overdue.
