How the Health Risks of GMOs Have Been Underestimated and Misrepresented

Though it’s routinely claimed that producing new foods through genetic engineering is no riskier than traditional breeding - and that questioning the safety is tantamount to denying the reality of climate change - many experts assert that the facts do not support such claims; and according to the analysis in Steven Druker’s book, the claims rely on multiple misrepresentations. The Royal Society of Canada and several other scientific institutions have stated that bioengineering entails higher health risks, and several studies in peer-reviewed journals have detected harm to animals that consumed GMOs. The hazards are especially striking in light of the lessons from computer science about the unavoidable risks of altering human-engineered information systems that are much simpler and far better comprehended than bioinformation systems. Come discuss this topic with author and attorney Steven Druker.
