ISBGMO: A personal perspective

Opening day speakers at the International Symposium on the Biosafety of Genetically Modified Organisms (ISBGMO) played on the theme of this year’s event — "Environmental Risk Assessment of Genetically Modified Organisms: past, present and future" — by highlighting the importance of reflecting on the past and what we have learned from it; assessing the current state of GMO research; and looking forward to the future with new plant breeding techniques.

Shopping for some honesty: sorting out non-GMO claims

The Non-GMO Project is sowing doubts about the safety of GM products to increase sales of its verified products.  It should not be allowed to make those false statements.  In addition, with its unscientific perspective on GMOs, the Non-GMO Project seal should not become the default national marketplace standard for non-GMO product verification. The federal government needs to establish a national definition of “non-GMO” and oversee how that term is used.
