GMO Scandal:

-Did not study the long term effects of a diet of GMO plants on humans or even rats.-The company claims that they have no harmful side effects because the GMO companies forbid such tests. -In order to buy seeds, the Monsanto and the gene giant companies must first sign an End User Agreement with the company.-Scientist are prohibited from testing a seed to explore under what conditions it flourishes or even fails. 

Don't Be Afraid of GMO:

-Scientist including FDA experts have said that fish are just as safe to eat as conventional salmon and that, raised in iscolated tanks, it poses little risk to wild population. -If the modified fish is approved it will be the first transgenic animal to offically enter the human food supply. -Researchers at the University of California, Davis, who developed goats whose modified milk could be used to treat and prevent childhood diarrhea.-They created birds that cannot spread the flu to their flock.
