Summary: Cargill: GMOs

“Despite all scientific evidence that GMOs are safe, some people remain skeptical, and GMOs continue to be a hot-button issue in public discussions about food. However, safety concerns about GMOs are unfounded. All foods derived from GM crops on the market today have been reviewed against rigorous food safety standards.”
