"Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food," said Phil Angell, Monsanto's director of corporate communications. "Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA's job." 
- New York Times, October 25, 1998

"What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it's doing are as different as night and day." - Dr. Herbert Ley, Former FDA Commissioner


Please go to the website of Physicians and Scientists for Responsible Application of Science and Technology (PSRAST) for an impartial scientific explanation of the GE food issue. For an introduction, you could begin with "Do genetically engineered foods provide any benefits?" at

It is very obvious that the present use and release of GE foods is irresponsible. The reason is that there are huge deficiencies in the knowledge about DNA, the effects of genetic engineering on organisms, the environmental consequences as well as the food safety of GE foods. In short, we know far to little to be able to justify the release of GE organisms today. It cannot be excluded that this technology may cause irreparable damage to the environment and may be hazardous to human health. It will take decades until we know if this technology is safe and useful.

Their commercial exploitation is highly premature. It has not been dictated by concerns for the wellbeing of mankind but by the short term interests of the biotech industry that has invested billions in the technology since decades and has been pressing hard and unfortunately successfully to make governments to approve their products.

If you are still sceptical, read "Misleading arguments commonly used by biotech advocates" at and "PR strategies used to manipulate opinions about GE foods" at
