Jon Entine Said It

Jon Entine stated in his article ,The debate about GMO safety is over,thanks to a new trillion meal study, that,"...there have been over 2,000 studies showing that biotechnology does not pose an unnatural threat to human health and genetically modified foods are as safe a or safer than conventional or organic foods."

GMO Rice Modified To Produce Human Blood Protein
