We don't need GM foods t feed the planet. Food productiona nd delivery to where it's needed would go up exponentially if corruption stopped and wars too. As it is, it is reckoned that 50% of food goes to waste either through bad storage or bad delivery means or bad planning.
A lot of Monsanto's GM work is directed to making plants such as corn resistant to glyphosate. There are studies which show the effects of feeding GM corn with this added feature is highly carcinogenic to rats but it also seems that this study was itself suspect.
A newer study on pigs, however, and by a more reputable laboratory, seems to show they are developing cancers too. According to my scientists who tell me these things, toxicolgy studies by producer companies only have to be run for 3 months - clearly not long enough to show long term effects of absorption over say 10 years.........
I will never knowingly eat GM foods.
