Toxicology reports in many organisms provide evidence that suggests GMO's from multiple manufacturers are safe to consume. The notion that there is simply not enough long term data is false. The very few studies out there that claim GMO's are unsafe are flawed, from choosing mice that die of cancer in normal environments, to lack of validation methods, and of course just bad experimental design.

To date not a single person has died as a result of consuming genetically modified food or acquired any disease.

GMOs will cause serious illnesses like cancer, liver failure, thyroid. hypertension, and much more. GMOs aren't safe and WILL kill people that eat a lot of them.

Sources? I have read most papers that claim toxic effects from consuming this and they as previously mentioned they all have flaws, notably, most concerning 0 validation methods for antibody labeling in radioimmunoassays. I'd love to discuss a paper that suggests it has evidence for one of these claims .
