Who to trust on biotech foods?

On occasion, even experts’ opinions can differ on certain issues, but biotechnology is not one of them. The most reputable science, food and health organizations all have positive positions on agricultural biotechnology:

World Health Organization – “No effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of (biotech) foods…”

Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.N. – “Biotechnology provides powerful tools for the sustainable development of agriculture, fisheries and forestry, as well as the food industry.”

American Medical Association – “Our AMA recognizes the many potential benefits offered by bioengineered crops and foods…and encourages ongoing research developments in food biotechnology.”

International Food Information Council – “This process results in tangible environmental and economic benefits, that are passed on to the farmer and the consumer.”

National Academy of Sciences – “Agricultural biotechnology is one tool that holds great promise for alleviating hunger and poverty.”
