‘Not one case of harm from GMOs’

‘Here are two GMO quotes. I’ll let them speak for themselves, and then make a few comments.

QUOTE ONE: “This compilation is a sample of the scientific references including over 1200 studies, surveys, and analyses that suggest various adverse impacts and potential adverse impacts of genetically engineered (GE/GMO) crops, foods and related pesticides. This list contains references regarding health impacts, environmental impacts, including impact of non-target organisms (NTOs), resistance of target organisms, genetic drift and drift of pesticides, horizontal gene transfer, unintended effects, as well as references regarding yields, social impact, ethics, economics and regulations. In most cases, links are provided to the abstracts for the references.” (See gmofreeusa.org, “GMO Science,” for the list of 1237 specific references.)

QUOTE TWO: “If we look at evidence from [more than] 15 years of growing and consuming GMO foods globally, then there is no substantiated case of any adverse impact on human health, animal health or environmental health, so that’s pretty robust evidence, and I would be confident in saying that there is no more risk in eating GMO food than eating conventionally farmed food…The bottom line for me is that there is no more risk in GMO food than conventionally farmed food, it has nothing to do with genetic engineering…” (Statement of Anne Glover, CHIEF SCIENTIFIC ADVISOR TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION, in a July 24, 2012, interview with EurActiv.)

No problem, nothing to see here, no harm, no foul.’
