“20 points of broad scientific consensus on GE crops”

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.)
