No, GMOs Won't Harm Your Health

New Haven--Dr. Steven Novella, a neurologist at Yale University, is a prominent voice in the skeptical movement, a scientific movement that, as he describes it, focuses heavily on explaining the truth behind "common myths-things that people believe that aren't true." Novella helped sort out fact from fiction when it comes to so-called industrial agriculture in general, and GMOs in particular, in a Mother Jones article.

Genetic modification, Novella said, "is not the panacea, nor is it a menace; it's just one more tool that has to be used intelligently." Novella also argues that many of the fears surrounding genetically modified crops are unsupported.
