“The short answer is no, there is absolutely zero reputable evidence that GMO foods cause cancer,” says Dr. Kevin Folta, University of Florida interim chairman and associate professor, Horticultural Sciences Department.

For example, there are more than 1,080 studies about the health and safety of GMOs available at biofortied.org, and a decade of GMO research, funded by the European Commission, that and GMOs pose no greater risk than their conventional counterparts.1
