It is often claimed that "trillions of GMO meals" have been eaten in North America with no ill effects and that no one has been harmed. However, no epidemiological studies in human populations have been carried out to establish whether there are any health effects associated with GMO consumption.
As GMO foods are not labelled in North America, it is scientifically impossible to trace, let alone study patterns of consumption and their impacts. Therefore, claims that GMO foods are safe for human health based on the experience of North America populations have no scientific basis.
There is evidence from laboratory studies on cells and animals documenting damages to practically every organ system from exposure to GMOs and/or glyphosate herbicides (source: www.i-sis.org.uk/Retracting_Serallini_study_violates_science.php).
If GMOs do no harm to humans, animals, soils and the environment, why is it that the biotech industry and the Grocery Manufacturers Association spent $45 million to keep GMO labels off food products?
Label GMOs so consumers know what they are eating!
