GMOs are simultaneously:
- So similar to existing organisms, that no safety testing is needed as regards food, due to "substantial equivalence"
- So innovative and unique as to be the "intellectual property" of whoever first filed a legal claim of ownership with the appropriate establishment authority.
Evidence is growing that GMO's present a hazard to the earth's biosphere, and that many organisations supposed to deal with such concerns (e.g. the FDA) are not doing so because they are effectively captured by big agriculture.
A 2015 poll reported that nearly 90% of Americans want mandatory labeling on genetically modified foods.
The company Oxitec has been producing genetically modified mosquitoes on an industrial scale for some years in Brazil, a country which experienced a huge rise in microcephaly in 2016 - possibly related to the mosquito borne Zika virus.
HumansReporting on a study by the Hinxton Group, the BBC headlined a story in 2015 "GM embryos 'essential', says report".
