A group of over 85 world scientists have released a statement saying there is no scientific consensus that GMOs are safe and say the public are being misled reported GM Watch.
The campaign is a UK-based campaign and has received attention on many anti-GM blogs and larger media outlets.
In reaction to the statement, the Agricultural Biotechnology Council of Australia (ABCA) have said ‘the statement released last night flies in the face of the consensus of an overwhelming majority of scientists. Every legitimate scientific organisation that has examined the evidence has arrived at the conclusion that GM crops and the foods they produce pose no risk to human health or the environment beyond those posed by their conventional counterparts.’
