Anti-biotechs continue to push poor science

The following is an excerpt.

A study published last month found that the most common modification in genetically modified (GM) crops includes a significant and previously unidentified fragment of a viral gene known as Gene VI. The study, published in the journal, GM Crops and Food, said the gene “might result in unintended phenotypic changes,” which means it could have unintended genetic or environmental consequences and raises serious concern about the safety of GM food and feed.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) was quick to rebut these claims stating that neither does the viral fragment represent a new discovery of a viral gene nor does it indicate safety concerns in previously evaluated GMOs.
