That is a completely false (and ridiculous) statement not backed by any science.
I defy you to show me even one peer reviewed piece of scientific research that shows that GMOs have ever caused detrimental harm to any person on this planet through its ingestion.
, and AMA
all disagree with the perceived danger of GMOs.
Here is an excerpt from the AMA study:
“Bioengineered foods have been consumed for close to 20 years, and during that time, no overt consequences on human health have been reported and/or substantiated in the peer-reviewed literature.”
People who are ardent opponents frequently cite Gilles-Eric Seralini's
report. This paper has since been refuted by the SFPT
and the European Society of Toxicologic Pathology
. The EFSA
also found the report to be woefully inaccurate and dubious.
