Health Risks

Are GMOs a danger to human health?

In the U.S., the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) does not require human health studies of any kind before a company releases a GMO into the food supply and absolutely no long term safety testing of GMOs has been conducted.  Consequently, neither the public, elected officials, nor regulatory agencies are given vital information that would be needed to determine if there are safety concerns associated with these experiments.  However, there have been several independent studies indicating we should have grave concern about the health effects of GMOs including:

- Diseases Resistant to Antibiotics
- Tumors, Cancer, Abnormal Cell Growth, and Elevated Immune Responses
- New Allergens
- Toxin Level Increases and Nutritional Deviations

There are also numerous independent studies on health risks that illustrate the above and other dangers of genetically engineered foods.
