argylesock says… Here are some good words about genetically modified (GM, genetically engineered, GE) food crops in the United States. I agree with most of what’s said here. Some flaws, including claims about rats being fed on GM potatoes and soya. That seems to be a muddle about the famous study by Seralini, in which rats were fed GM maize (corn, Zea mays). There’s no mention of which GM varieties were investigated. In fact Prof Seralini used an insecticidal (Bt) maize called MON863. [Edit: or was it maize NK603? I’m gradually coming to understand that study.] [Edit again: yes, it was NK603. Prof Seralini’s website says so.] But otherwise, I think this article is a good summary.
