An interesting unbiased article supporting the labeling of GMO foods. There are still controversies depending on what side of the debate you are on.

Some considerations:

There are still only short-term, small feeding studies; no long-term studies reflecting a lifetime.

There are doubts about the efficacy of increased crop yields and feeding the world.

There are still some doubts about whether glyphosate is carcinogenic to humans.

Why hide the fact that some foods are produced using biotechnology? Most consumers want to know and 64 countries require it (even China).

Where are the studies on improved nutritional content?

Based on the ties between academia and the biotech industry, can we count on their conclusions?
