    JustinH33: GMO Answers does not fund the independent experts who answer the questions submitted to this website. In fact, experts from a wide have wide range of disciplines have volunteered their time and knowledge to address your questions. They have agreed to stand at the ready to provide you with an intimate look inside the world of GMOs, and offer their perspectives. More information about the experts is available here: http://gmoanswers.com/about-the-experts. Also, you can learn more about why we created this site, here: http://gmoanswers.com/about The purpose of GMO Answers is to create a place to answer your questions about GMOs and biotechnology.

    http://grist.org/food/look-whos-squealing-now-gmo-lovers-freak-over-new-study-of-sick-pigs/ http://www.motherearthnews.com/natural-health/gmo-safety-zmgz13amzsto.aspx#axzz2g1rPiCXZ Here are a couple links to some studies done. Veronica I believe this site is pro GMO. I doubt you'll get any truth from these people. I also read that this sight pays these people like Cathleen to comment on these questions in a pro GMO fashion.

    Thanks Veronica for your comment. We invite you to review our GMOs and Health section which has more information on this topic, available here: http://gmoanswers.com/explore?carouselid=2&slideindex=0 Scientific authorities such as the U.S. National Academies of Science, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association and the American Association for the Advancement of Science have looked at hundreds of scientific studies and have concluded that foods with biotech-derived ingredients do not pose any more risks to people than any other foods. More information/studies on the health and safety of GMOs are available via the links below: http://www.academia.edu/542384/A_Review_on_Impacts_of_Genetically_Modified_Food_on_Human_Health http://www.cga.ct.gov/2013/KIDdata/Tmy/2013HB-06527-R000305-Scientific%20Bodies%20Afffirming%20Safety-TMY.PDF http://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm048341.htm http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodScienceResearch/Biotechnology/ucm346030.htm http://www.senseaboutscience.org/data/files/resources/9/MSofGM2011.pdf (checkout pages 18 and 19) Additionally, hundreds of independent studies demonstrating that GMO food does not raise any new concerns are available at http://www.biofortified.org/ If you have additional questions on this topic, please feel free to repost a question here: http://gmoanswers.com/ask Thanks

    But there are studies that prove that GMOs are not safe and they do cause harm. Could you please put a link to the study that shows that GMOs are healthy and nutritious.
