Major science group weighs in on safety of genetically modified foods – CBS News

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine concluded Tuesday that tinkering with the genetics of what we eat — adding a gene from another species — doesn’t produce the “Frankenfood” monster some opponents claim it does. But it isn’t feeding the world with substantially increased yields, as proponents predicted.

The authors conclude that there’s “no substantiated evidence that foods from GE [genetically engineered] crops were less safe than foods from non-GE crops,” and that regulators need to make their safety focus more on the end-product of the food that’s made rather than the nuts and bolts of how it’s made.
