WASHINGTON - The National Academy of Sciences must move to end its one-sided work on genetically engineered crops and animals (often referred to as GMOs) given the “enormous potential to introduce bias,” according to a letter signed by 39 public-interest groups and academics.
Actually, from my reading, conflicts of interest go much further back than 2000. I have not the citation from texts I read last year on the history of GMO development. Industry bias, however, and poor science are insidiously interwoven into its etiology. Any moderate curiosity into GMO history easily unearths shabby science and both troubling, even dangerous conclusions and conflicts of interest.
