Topics

GMO Safety

GMO/Allergy Safety

The article claims GMO crops are responsible for a rise in food allergies, yet provides no evidence beyond the statement of a correlation (which itself they do not provide any evidence for) to support the claim.

GMO/Autism Safety

The article claims that GMOs are responsible for a rise in autism diagnoses, yet provide no evidence to support the claim

GMO/Fertility/Reproduction Problems Safety

The article claims that GMOs are responsible for a reduction in fertility and for causing reproductive issues, yet does absolutely nothing to substantiate the claim

GMO/Digestive/Gut Problems Safety

The article says that GMOs cause digestion problems and gut issues, yet (surprise surprise) provide no evidence to support the claim once more.

GMO Crops And Pesticides Usage

The article claims that GMO crops are responsible for increased pesticide usage. Is anyone surprised it is without any evidence at this point?

GMO Crops And Pesticides Causing Super Weeds

The article claims GMO crops result in weeds resistant to particular pesticides, while ignoring that the same is true of any pesticide ever

GMO Crop Yields

This article actually backs up one of its claims for once! That's lovely. Unfortunately for the article however their language is far from damning of GMO crops if the best they can manage is "in some instances, they have been out-yielded by their non-GMO counterparts". Their argument is even less relevant when we consider no GMO crops have been made specifically to enhance crop yeild.
