business news in context, analysis with attitude

An anti-GMO group called Sustainable Pulse is reporting on a new study conducted in the UK and published in the scientific journal Nature - that says "molecular profiles" reveal that there are "major differences in composition between a GMO corn and its non-GMO parent."

The bottom line, the story says, is that "the findings of this study disprove industry and regulatory agency claims" that GMO corn is "substantially equivalent" to its non-GMO equivalent, and "suggest that a more thorough evaluation of the safety of consuming products derived from this GMO corn on a long term basis should be undertaken."

KC's View:
Let's be clear. The folks who did the study, and the folks who are reporting the study, have a point of view. But that doesn't mean they are wrong or inaccurate.

This study is a lot further into the scientific weeds than I'm capable of understanding, but I want to know more.

BTW...just being genetically modified, and being different from non-GMO products, does not make a thing bad. Just different. My argument all along has been that rather than arguing that there is no difference, pro-GMO forces out to be educating and illuminating the public.
