The Debate About GMO Safety Is Over, Thanks To A New Trillion-Meal Study
Forbes
Animal feeding studies are the basis for evaluating the safety of GMO crops. One-off studies of lab animals have occasionally shown some problems.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think this guy should feed his family plenty of cow feed and let his grand kids get back to us on this. I would also like to see who funded  the "STUDIES" to the penny. What does this have to do with labeling and a right to choose? Don't they think they should brag about their special ingredients. If they are the same why are they patented?  Either the are naturally occurring and not artificially lab made or they are not and should be labeled like all chemically lab alter products design for human consumption. These products should be treated as a drug. They falsely have positive thinking that they will convince people they don't have a right to make their own choice to consume these products safe or not. Without labels what most people now do is avoid it all processed foods as much as possible, eat less and /or learn to raise more food on their own so they know what is happening to it. They know their war isn't over or we wouldn't be reading this article. Just the idea they still want their product to be like slipping everyone a Mickey rather than being honestly labeled stinks of deceit! The insult that people are too stupid to choose for themselves as informed citizens is disgusting. Talk about people that are out of touch with reality....
