The title of this short post–20 points of broad scientific consensus on GE crops–seems rather accurate, based on my own extensive knowledge in this subject. The piece cites peer-reviewed studies or position papers from scientific societies. In fact, they list only a few of the position statements from scientific societies on the safety of consuming present-day GE crops. Others exist, including those from major European scientific societies.
The lead author, Pamela Ronald, is a highly respected molecular geneticist and her husband is an organic farmer. Thus, as a pair, they bring a somewhat unique perspective to the topic of genetic engineering. (Just for clarity, Dr. Ronald’s husband is not a coauthor on this particular piece, but they do publish jointly.)
