Controversy, Lies and Health Risks
By Dr. Michael Wald (Recycled from December 2013, Edition 2)
Illustrated by Annie Dwyer Internicola
Do genetically modified foods, otherwise known as GMFs or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), pose health risks that overwhelm their potential economic and ecological benefits? Has it been established that GMOs are safe in the short and long term for human consumption? Have political and financial motivations corrupted organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration, manufacturers of GMOs, the White House and other influential parties from objectively acknowledging human health risks? Are these very same organizations that we are supposed to trust to police industries for health and safety violations themselves guilty, either directly or indirectly, for slowly poisoning both current and future generations of Americans?
