AFBF President Zippy Duvall Comments on National Academy Report on GMOs

Thu, 19 May 2016 17:38:33 CDT

AFBF President Zippy Duvall Comments on National Academy Report on GMOs American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall released the following statement regarding the National Academy of Sciences study showing foods from GE-crops are just as safe as foods from non-GE-crops.



“The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine have reaffirmed what thousands of other studies have found, and what farmers, scientists and educated consumers have known all along: genetically engineered crops are safe and beneficial to agriculture, human health and the environment.



“The Academies also found that we do not need a label for food made from genetically engineered crops because those foods are as safe to consume as any other. This finding is timely, as the Senate has yet to pass legislation to pre-empt state-by-state labeling mandates—mandates that are not based on science or food safety issues and would be misleading and costly for consumers. The study gives senators all the evidence they need to support a national, voluntary labeling standard and we urge them to do so soon—before it is too late to halt the non-science-based labeling mandate in Vermont.



“The science behind the safety of modern agricultural technology is clearer than ever. We thank the Academies for tackling this issue and doing a thorough, scientific review. This report should close the book on any further debate over the safety and benefits of GMOs.”
