Crop Scientists Group Promotes its Position Against GMO Labeling

“Analysis of over 25 years of research, representing thousands of independent studies, shows that GM crops are as safe as crops derived from traditional breeding methods.”

On March 7, 2014, the Crop Science Society of America, an international organization that claims 6,000 crop scientists as its members, released its report supporting the safety of biotechnology and announcing its opposition to the mandatory labeling of GM crops.

“Requiring labels for foods with GM crops could serve to falsely alarm and potentially mislead consumers … Analysis of over 25 years of research, representing thousands of independent studies, shows that GM crops are as safe as crops derived from traditional breeding methods. FDA labeling practices require product labeling when the absence of information would pose a special health or environmental risk.”

This report is a great source of reputable scientific data further reconfirming the safety of GMOs.
