Study finds GMO crops MISSED important goals

http://usrtk.org/gmo/u-s-review-of-gmo-crops-finds-risks-and-rewards-says-more-transparency-needed/

Transparency? Like in how both food related GE/GMO’s and FRACKING have their secret sauces?

Here is the actual 400 page report…https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-pJR4cGo9ckQ2Nod09ISW55dDA/view?pref=2&pli=1 My take away is:

  1. GMO crops have not increased the rate of crop yield as anticipated
  2. “Resistance traits aimed at a broader array of insect pests and diseases in more crops are more likely”
  3. In glyphosate-addicted/dependant areas, some weeds evolved resistance
  4. Healthwise, they looked at the existing studies and complained that “The design and analysis of many animal feeding studies were not optimal, but the large number of experimental studies provided reasonable evidence that animals were not harmed by eating food derived from GE crops…….found no substantial evidence that foods from GE crops were less safe than foods from non-GE crops.” BUT they go on to say that Omics technologies need further refinements to correct inefficiencies in (future) unintended changes of GE crops/breeding.
