Before they reach the market, crops from genetically modified seeds are studied extensively to make sure they are safe for people, animals and the environment. Today’s genetically modified products are the most researched and tested agricultural products in history. In fact, genetically modified seeds take an average of $130 million and 13 years to bring to market. Bringing a new GMO to market involves comprehensive safety and environmental review by regulatory bodies around the world. In addition to the review process conducted in the United States by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), other nations conduct their own rigorous certification processes and regulatory approvals. Currently more than 60 countries certify genetically modified products for cultivation, importation and/or field trials and testing.Read More

Starting at the beginning: some 3.5 to 3.8 billion years ago, there existed a single-celled replicator that was, most likely, the common ancestor of everything alive today. Now, if you are anti-GMO, harken back to the thought that...
