Big news for the Right to Know movement! Awareness regarding the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) has mushroomed, forcing the world to finally put genetically spliced food under the microscope.
Organizers announced in London on November 11 that they will be performing the world’s first ever comprehensive and independent study on the safety of GMOs and their associated pesticides. Referred to as “Factor GMO,” the project has already begun the preparatory phase, but the full-blown experiment is expected to launch in 2015.
The $25 million study will be the first long-term combined GMO/pesticide safety study involving multi-generational, toxicology and carcinogenicity arms. “Neutral” scientists with reportedly NO ties to the biotech industry or anti-GMO movement will be monitoring 6,000 rats fed GM corn over a three-year period.
Fear of sabotage prompts GMO study location to be kept hidden
Factor GMO is set to take place in Russia and Western Europe and will include an International Scientists Review Board with three experts, one each from the United States, Italy and Russia.
The study’s exact location will be kept secret due to “outside interference” that could potentially compromise the day-to-day running of the experiments and/or results.
