This growing awareness is the outcome of mass produced foods and the lack of concern from our government. The research on the long lasting effects of GMO consumption is gray, and transparent. That is why it is too grave of a risk to not have the right to choose GMO or non-GMO. Corporations like Monsanto have been genetically engineering our food since 1996 when the first genetically modified foods were cultivated. Questions have been raised, and Monsanto's answers are scary:
Why aren’t you running human clinical trials on GM crops?Okay Monsanto spokesperson sure, we believe you.
“There is no need for, or value in testing the safety of GM foods in humans. So long as the introduced protein is determined safe, food from GM crops determined to be substantially equivalent is not expected to pose any health risks. Further, it is impossible to design a long-term safety test in humans, which would require, for example, intake of large amounts of a particular GM product over a very large portion of the human life span. There is simply no practical way to learn anything via human studies of whole foods. This is why no existing food--conventional or GM--or food ingredient/additive has been subjected to this type of testing.”
