GMO corn contains genes artificially inserted by scientists to produce an insect-killing poison called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) toxin. It is in every cell of the GMO corn crop—and in every bite your child consumes. Common sense tells us GM food has to be harmful. Additional study might prove GMO foods cause autism, but funding is tough.
Food science is the science of food, the nutrients and other substances therein, their action, interaction and balance in relation to health and disease, and the processes by which the organism ingests, digests, absorbs, transports, utilizes and excretes food substances.
Dear Michael Gove,. I am surprised to learn that from the huge number of scientists employed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and Rothamsted Research (research institute involved in developing and testing GM crops) that not one of them has read the new book by Caius Rommens, former team leader at Monsanto.
October 2014. Over the past 18 years, and in many parts of the world, genetically modified (GM) crops grown by 18 million farmers (of which 16 million are resource-poor farmers) have already provided significant improvements in the quantity and quality of the food supply while reducing economic cost, energy usage, pesticide usage, fuel usage, soil erosion and carbon emissions, with no ...
The biotech potatoes commercialized in the mid-1990s (Toevs et al. 2011b) were a technological success and provided benefits to producers, consumers, and the environment, but anti-GMO pressure regarding the safety of biotech food crops led to their removal from the market in 2002, and their status remained unchanged for more than a decade. With ...

The greater health issue is the increasing food allergies resulting from consumption of GMO food in the US. While American consumers remain oblivious, GMO Foods have been introduced into the US food supply without safety testing or even labeling. Already 80% of our US food supply is GMO, affecting corn, soy, cotton seed oil and canola oil.
A Russian scientist named Ermakova has studied Bt soy, and found something similar to what Pusztai found with potatoes. I believe it's incumbent upon government to do public science and to protect ...
Today such products have been agreed to be calledall that is genetically modified organisms or any products in which there are components of these organisms. That is, GMO food will not only be genetically modified potatoes or corn, but also sausages, in which, in addition to liver and sodium nitrate, GMO soybeans are added.
