Anti-GMO hoax targets Kaiser-Permanente health group

Last night, a large number of web sites proudly announced that the Kaiser-Permanente health group had advised its subscribers to avoid GMO foods. We first became aware of this when the somewhat flakey web site Fooducate  posted this announcement. The article, and hundred like it on other “natural foods websites” all posted a fuzzy low resolution scan of what purported to be a bulletin from Kaiser advising against the use of GMO foods.

There are two problems with the announcement:

  • The science is complete nonsense.
  • Kaiser didn’t say anything of the sort.
