GMO Nonsense

Henry Miller and Andrew Seidenfeld write about GMOs in Times Union the other day.

When it holds its annual meeting in November in Saratoga Springs, NYSPTA will vote on a resolution urging the state to ban all food and drinks that contain "GMOs" from school cafeterias and vending machines. This proposal is contrary to science and common sense. 

I wish the anti-science types would all stay on the Right.

Every reputable scientific body and regulatory agency that has examined these methods — from the National Academies of Science and the American Medical Association to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and World Health Organization — has declared them as safe as older techniques. Recently, 113 Nobel laureates, most of whom won their prizes in medicine and science, wrote an open letter supporting the safety of GMOs and encouraging their adoption worldwide.

I recently took a continuing ed class at ACC where the instructor went off on an anti-GMO rant. No more classes from him.
