Why aren Americans being told about the concerns of scientists?
Agribusiness and scientists are in the courts about this issue. The study done in the early 1990s said to research the differences in GMO and non-GMO foods is being questioned. Several political happenings over the last decade or so point to an unresolved struggle between the truth and what agribusiness wants publicized. FDA scientists did not claim that GE foods were dangerous — only that the risks were unknown and had not been studied adequately. Research cited by the scientists of the world in their open letter show the concerns of FDA staff were justified. This is one genie we can’t put back in the bottle. Farmers have been unable to stop DNA from GE crops from spreading to unaltered plants, which has created pesticide-resistant weeds in England and contaminated oilseed in Canada and virtually all of the corn grown in the Midwestern United States. Americans deserve to know the truth behind genetically engineered foods. And U.S. officials shouldn’t force desperate Africans to choos
