Letter: GM Foods: Stop the Fear-Mongering

To the Editor:

Over the last few months a group of activists pushing the labeling of GM Crops in food have chanted over and over again that there is no independent scientific evidence that shows they are safe. Yet for some reason they want to ignore the decades of scientific studies that say they are. The European Union did an extensive review and found there was no higher risk to the environment or food from GM Crops. The National Academy of Sciences, the World Health Organization and many others have concluded the same. So why do these labeling activists want to ignore the science? For over 20 years we have been eating food with GM Crops without any problems. Isn’t it time to stop the fear mongering?
