The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed a federal law that would require the labeling of GMO food. But the bill is not without criticism.
More than a hundred Nobel Laureates said GMOs are safe to eat, calling out environmental organization Greenpeace to stop their campaign against Golden Rice.
A new extensive study shows that Genetically Modified Organisms are safe for human consumption, debunking previous claims that it can cause cancer and other major human health complications
Researchers from the Penn State University has devised a new and effective way to genetically edit foods, but the new tool seem to gather different responses due to the loose regulatory system of the U.S. Department of Agriculture defining genetically modified organisms or GMO.
Since the domestication of corn, there have been many genetically modified versions created to date. So how does the sweet corn we enjoy today compare to that served at the first Thanksgiving feast in 1621?
Picturing mad scientists injecting glowing chemicals into tomatoes even while mega-corporations fill their bank accounts, many health-conscious consumers will do anything to avoid GMOs. But what if we told you that genetically modified crops existed even 8,000 years ago - modified by the hand of nature in the exact same way that scientists alter crops today?
Mark one victory point for the GMO critics. A new study recently found that genetically modified feed could be having a notable impact on goat mothers and their offspring. Critics are now using this as another point to help press the argument that there are some glaring gaps in GMO assessment and regulation that still need to be addressed.
There's a lot of fear surrounding GMOs - fear that some experts argue is born of a certain amount of ignorance. After all, even organic foods have been genetically tampered with in their own right. Now, a new survey of common crops has found that a great deal of modern GM foods wouldn't even fall under many GMO regulations currently in place, prompting experts to argue that these should be updated to ensure safety and encourage trust in GM crops alike.
The US Senate recently confirmed that climate change is real, finally agreeing with what scientists had been arguing all along. This is just one of many examples that show the disparity between public perception and scientific fact. So why can't scientists and the public agree?
