Society of Toxicology: No Verifiable Evidence of Potential for Adverse Health Effects of GE Crops

— Written By

The Society of Toxicology has developed and released a statement on the safety of genetically engineered food and feed crops. The society notes that “data from scientific studies have overwhelmingly demonstrated that foods obtained from GE crops are as safe and nutritious as foods obtained from non-GE (i.e., conventional) crops.”Their statement is available here.

Position statements concerning the safety of genetically engineered crops of other scientific societies are available here.
