No scientific consensus on GMO safety

The European Network of Scientists for Social and Environmental Responsibility (ENSSER) has made a new contribution to the debate on genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture.

In a statement “No scientific consensus on GMO safety” released on 21 October this year and initially signed by 92 scientists, a case is made that, so far, no scientific consensus exists on the assessment of a potential harm caused by genetically modified crops. This refers to GMO food safety, the potential effects of GM food consumption on human health, as well as a potential environmental risk posed by GMO foods and crops.

The statement definitely deserves reading, if not signing.
