Scientific Consensus - There is no scientific consensus that GMOs as a whole are safe. Monsanto aggressively pursues not having their products tested without being able to squelch the results. They have directly contributed funding to the AAAS which taints the source. The WHO says ongoing testing is needed and that "GM foods and their safety should be assessed on a case-by-case basis and that it is not possible to make general statements on the safety of all GM foods" and the AMA favors pretesting of products which the FDA does not currently require. Members of the AAAS and other experts have come forward to voice their disagreement. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/do-seed-companies-control-gm-crop-research/ http://www.medpagetoday.com/MeetingCoverage/AMA/33362 http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2012/yes-labels-on-gm-foods http://www.aaas.org/page/matching-gifts http://www.who.int/foodsafety/publications/biotech/20questions/en/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 06:13, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
- I understand that you are passionate about this. First, the statement is carefully written so that it does not cover all possible GMOs - instead it is narrowly targeted - it says "that food on the market derived from GM crops" -- it does not say "all GMOs". This exactly complies with the WHO statement. Additionally, a ton of sources are presented, and this statement and these sources have been upheld by the community in a broad discussion. You can read that here. Jytdog (talk) 11:39, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
