Why doesn't Monsanto allow any private researchers to test if their GMO seeds are actually safe? The only tests done on GMO food are done by or paid for by Monsanto, clearly it doesn't take a genius to figure out these tests are rigged in favor of Monsanto. I recommend that Monsanto give some of their seeds to independent scientists to actually test them(the seeds being randomly chosen). There should be no corporate intimidation done, bribes, threats, tampering of data, or any deception in this. If so it can be done the UN should do a take on in this and have overseas researchers test Monsanto's seeds as well and even to tests of their own, without any interference from Monsanto or any of it's affiliates, partners or other biotech corporations.

AExpert Answer

Independent researchers can do testing on our products.  In fact, there have been hundreds of studies on GMOs performed by independent scientists.  Please see additional information that I provided in response to a similar question on GMO Answers: http://gmoanswers.com/ask/i-learned-practical-experience-order-get-job-monsanto-or-do-any-research-supported-monsanto-or.

When people refer to Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), they are referring to precision plant breeding using genetic engineering. It allows plant breeders to take a desirable trait (like resistance to drought, insects, weeds, and disease) from one plant or organism and transfer it to the plant they want to improve, as well as make a change to an existing trait in a plant they are developing. You may have also heard of agricultural biotechnology or biotech seeds.... Read More

An "LMO" (Living Modified Organism) is basically a GMO that is alive and capable of passing on its genes to a subsequent generation. In most situations, the terms LMO and GMO are essentially synonymous, but neither term is really used by most biotechnologists! More on that below.    The term LMO was used in the Cartegena Protocol (basically a big document that came out of an international convention several years ago, more detailed info here.)   The reason we as...

Biotechnology as a discipline focuses on understanding molecular biology and has applications in medicine/health, environmental science, industrial products and agriculture. Biotechnology is widely used in all these sectors. I will focus my answer on agricultural biotechnology.   In many countries (e.g., Brazil, Canada, India, and the United States) a significant amount of agricultural research, especially basic research in molecular biology, is conducted by governmental agricultural...
