This Fox News report finally questions the safety of GMOs, mentioning specifically the potential health consequences of increased chemical use as GM crops become increasingly pesticide resistant. Farmers are using more chemicals and more concentrated chemicals. These chemicals are in the food supply, in the soil, and in our bodies, even the cord blood of newborn infants.
The National Grocers Association naturally opposes any labeling of GM foods. One might assume it is because they have seen the results of test labeling on purchasing habits. Labels matter. Perhaps they know that consumers won’t buy GM foods if they have a choice.
The report includes findings from feeding studies showing intestinal damage in animals fed Bt corn and the potential links to food allergies.
