New Study Reveals Interesting Conclusion on GMO Food Safety

This study is a summary of feeding genetically engineered (GE) feed to commercial livestock.  The scientists at U. C. Davis analyzed over 30 years of animal feeding prior to and after the introduction of genetically engineered products in 1996.  They found that the "field data sets, representing over 100 billion animals following the introduction of GE crops, did not reveal unfavorable or perturbed trends in livestock health or productivity."

I recommend reading the full article which is found at the Journal of Animal Science here:
