TUESDAY, May 17, 2016 (HealthDay News) Genetically modified crops pose no apparent risk to human health, an extensive study released Tuesday by a U.S. science advisory board has concluded. Crops created through genetic engineering are as safe to eat as crops developed through traditional plant-breeding methods, according to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and. Genetically engineered crops appear to be safe to eat and do not harm the environment, according to a comprehensive new analysis by the advisory group the National Academies of Science.

Genetically modified crops on the market are not only safe, but appear to be good for people and the environment, experts determined in a report released Tuesday. Genetically engineered crops appear to be safe to eat and do not harm the environment, according to a comprehensive new analysis by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine, an. TUESDAY, May 17, 2016 (HealthDay News) Genetically modified crops pose no apparent risk to human health, an extensive study released Tuesday by a U. Genetically-engineered crops safe to and a new report from a leading science organization finds it’s generally safe for humans Farms that use genetically modified crops. Genetically engineered (GE) crops are no different from conventional crops in terms of their risks to human health and the environment, according to a.

This is not to say that everything done in the name of genetic engineering has a clean bill of health. Controversy abounds over the use of genetically modified seeds that produce crops like so. When it is possible to speak of genetically engineered crops as a broad category, it’s of about as much use as reporting that cars are safe, or that pets are safe.

Both of those things are. The “first generation” crops with traits such as insect resistance and herbicide tolerance have proven their ability to lower farm-level production costs. The “second-generation” GM crops feature increased nutritional and/or industrial traits.

These crops have more direct benefits to consumers.

Numerous investigations have confirmed that cultivation of genetically modified plants is safe, as far as approved plants are concerned which have passed a step by step risk assessment procedure, as is commonly applied in most countries growing genetically modified organisms (GMO) today.

Although a reasonable conclusion would be that the genetic modification of crops, which is an extremely powerful tool, markedly increases the potential of all crop species, the production of nutritionally improved and enhanced crop plants would present a new problem concerning safety assessment.

  • I don’t know why some people think that GMOs are terrible and bad for the ecosystem and is “not natural!” When GMOs can do all of the good things in this video and will not harm you and could be used to save the environment by making plants that don’t need so much pesticide so that we don’t kill lots of innocent animals (including bees) or that make more produce so that we don’t need to chop down forests to grow the same amount of food as a small farm that uses GMOs

  • For many thousands of years all civilization lived in respect for nature and for the profound balance that gave us life and food. We selected seeds in synergy with the sun, the earth and the whole biosphere, pests and deseases included. We did this based on the principles of patience, consistency and fertility, working with nature and not against it. Natural selection is different from GMOs simply because it takes in account for the many many variables of a vast, dynamic and extremely complex balance. It has operated and worked perfectly during billion of years in a lab which is littelay large like the whole planet. Thinking we can do better, is sin of pride. To me, OGM is like a plaster on a very bad wound. A patch invented by a humanity devoted to hurry, to exploitation of the erath and consumerism. We should fix those deep wounds in the first place. Only then we’ll be able to practice a real sustainable and healthy agriculture.

  • Sure the use of glyphosate has increased, but its still a lot less toxic than the chemicals we were using fifty years ago as herbicides. Its even less toxic and has less environmental impact than organic herbicides like copper sulfate.

  • Paste this: 14730317. Peer-reviewed, published ‘safety’ study, based on a SINGLE feeding: Excerpt: ” “The transgene did not survive passage through the intact gastrointestinal tract of human subjects fed GM soya. Three of seven ileostomists showed evidence of low-frequency gene transfer from GM soya to the microflora of the small bowel before their involvement in these experiments. As this low level of epsps in the intestinal microflora did not increase after consumption of the meal containing GM soya, we conclude that gene transfer did not occur during the feeding experiment. ”
    How did the GMO gene get into the 3 trialists BEFORE the (single meal!) study? Magic? Or in line with these UN Codex concerns: “Pg 18, “56: Gene transfer from plants and their food products to gut micro-organisms or human cells is considered a rare possibility because of the many complex and unlikely events that would need to occur consecutively. Nevertheless, the possibility of such events cannot be completely discounted.6”

    Hmmm, magic vs science…take your pick, So, KZGT, the safety science is in, right? Show us ONE human safety study that meets UN Codex protocols on GMO foods…just ONE HUMAN STUDY….c’mon, how hard can it be? REAL SCIENCE, not colourful ‘berd’ science…

  • Would love to hear a discussion between Dave and Kevin Folta.  For example, on a recent Talking Biotech Podcast (#206) they seem to suggest Glyphosate/GMO scare is driven by money, and not science.  Also any update on Salk’s work on curcumin (J147) and the fisetin (CMS121)?

  • But I can’t be the only one that’s weary about the food we consume goes through a lab and gets changed. 6:44 that’s what I’m terrified of.

  • You can live without pesticides but you cant live without seeds. If GMO seed is unable to reproduce that basicly means that human depend from new supplies from specific, hungry companies. This for me seems as very slippery slope

  • I want to see plants genetically engineered to be grown effectively in low gravity environments so we can fill space stations and colonies with them.

  • NY Times. 2020. $10 Billion ‘out-of-court’ settlement. for cancer victims, on behalf on Monsanto. Monsanto are LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO BANK!!
    Bayer bought Monsanto for $69 Billion..wow, how GENEROUS IS BAYER?? How guilty? $ 10 BILLION in ‘out-of-court’ settlements, because RoundUp is Safe??
    It’s all over Google, just type Bayer, Glyphosate….
    The YT shills are finally EARNING their foul payments. What a pity people are likely to DIE as a result of Monsanto’s REFUSAL to have warning labels on Round-Up. How BAD is this? A crime against humanity…, that’s how bad it is.

  • Published in Elsevier, Food Chem Toxicology. 30580028: Addressing concerns over the fate of DNA derived from genetically modified food in the human body: A review. REAL SCIENCE, 2018: excerpt:

    Strong evidence suggested that plant-food-miRNAs can survive digestion, enter the body and affect gene expression patterns.

    Yum, GMO is GOOD FOR YOU (sarcasm)….. How did KZGT get this so wrong?????

  • Please watch “G.m.o.s” o.m.g… You want to put that garbage in your body, your gonna feel like garbage!! “Glyphosate isn’t that bad”” that is a joke!! Ooh so cancer isn’t that bad?! Didn’t a gentleman win a multi million dollar lawsuit against murder santo? I mean Monsanto. These videos are dis info at its finest for lazy sheeple who can’t do their own research. Have fun eating from DuPont and Monsanto. Everything has a vibrational frequency, i wouldn’t want they’re very low vib food in my temple of God..

  • Are GMO’s bad? Short answer, what some people are doing with them now is bad, but used right they could save the environment, and solve world hunger.

  • I love Kurzgesagt’s little allusions to pop-culture: for example at 5:09, the logo of OCP (‘Omnic Consumer Products’), the evil corp from ‘Robocop’ pops up

  • THIS IS HORRENDOUS, THIS IS NO MORE THAN MAN MADE MUTATIONS. MUTATIONS, WILL HAVE UNLIMITED CONSEQUENCES IF INFUSED WITH ALL EXISTING NATURAL ORGANISMS.

     I HAVE WORKED IN A MOLECULAR GENETICS LAB. THIS IS NOTHING BUT TWEEKING GENES ( MUTATING ) HOPING IT WILL HAVE GREAT CONSEQUENCES.

    THIS IS GOING TO KILL AND MUTATE THE WHOLE WORLD

  • If you are reptilian then GMO is good for you but if you are human then GMO is poison for you. However, there are humans who promote reptilian’s food and medicine.

  • It’s very simple gmo is evil. YOU CHANGE FOODS DNA AND EAT IT YOUR DNA CHANGES YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. THAT IS WHY CANCER IS RISING. GOOD LUCK CHANGING MY MIND RESEARCH STUFF BEFORE YOU REPLY STUPIDLY

  • Putting anamal DNA is used in this garbage plant and animal DNA should never be mixed you wonder why the bird’s will not eat from gmo crop don’t use it they will go to the non GMO farm and eat there

  • It’s basically cuz of being uninformed here. GMO is excellent as long as it’s tried, tested and shown to not have bad effects to modify this or that in a fruit or vegetable, etc. If we can make it so food can be grown with 20% GHGs being expelled from growing them, they require less water, is more resistant to pests, naturally higher antioxidant content and mineral contents on the inside of their peels, etc. etc.

  • Personally i think a comprise is the best solution.

    Instead of rolling out these super crops to huge farms instead tailor them for small scale farming via hydro or aquaponics, even if their better for simple flowerpot gardening that would greatly help with out situation.

  • A deeply revealing response from a pro-GMO shill, to published peer-reviewed Science (30580028, paste it): POPEYE GORDON states ” All of us are laughing at you, asshole. Elsevier is top notch. And of course it matters little if I convince you personally, your raging posts tell us you are clinically insane. The best part of my scathing citations is that other readers see them and know you are the liar. I know this for a fact because of the thousands of thumbs up notifications I get every year. You are fucked no matter what. Here is what he is so incensed about……: ” Strong evidence suggested that plant-food-miRNAs can survive digestion, enter the body and affect gene expression patterns.
    I made the ‘mistake’ of citing from REAL science, instead of his corporate book-of-factoids.

    Those are words of a GMO ‘gate-keeper’, how deeply inspiring! How trust-worthy! And KZGT does NOTHING to stop such nonsense?

  • “Assessing the survival of transgenic plant DNA in the human gastrointestinal tract
    “. A human clinical trial!!
    Finally found one!! One!!!
    Excerpt: “….The transgene did not survive passage through the intact gastrointestinal tract of human subjects fed GM soya. Three of seven ileostomists showed evidence of low-frequency gene transfer from GM soya to the microflora of the small bowel b e f o r e their involvement in these experiments. As this low level of epsps in the intestinal microflora did not increase after consumption of t h e meal containing GM soya, we conclude that gene transfer did not occur during the feeding experiment.
    ONE meal!! What a ‘study’!

    SO: How did THREE participants obtain pre-existing GMO soya genes in their gut flora?? HOW DID IT GET THERE?? Magic?

    Or by being consumed (unlabelled) over several years? And what about all the other GMO crops that have NEVER been tested in Humans?

  • Monsanto is spending MILLIONS to shut this up,there are twenty GMO’s Are Great u-tubes for every intelligent one, Intestinal Bacteria is HUGE extremely important. studies have shown gmos change them, that’s ALL we need to know, bust the bitches and be done with it the “debate:” is OVER.and Glyphosate? they CHEATED and LIED about it!!! even if it was vanilla,is should be ilegal just on that principal alone WHY did Dow Cheat? why did they LIE? because they knew it was CRAP from the get go.this was YEARS ago folks.god we wake up slow. oh well the nukes will take us out eventually anyway.

  • This is WONDERFUL to have a credible academic speak out TRUTHFULLY against the lying sociopaths at Monsanto et al. We need more such honorable people!!!!

  • All WE WANT IS THIS: DO SCIENTIFIC HUMAN SAFETY TRIALS ON EVERY GMO CROP IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE UN CODEX PROTOCOLS, BEFORE SELLING IT TO THE PUBLIC. GMO Meds do this voluntarily, and I’d take them without any qualms.

    Why does GMO Food / Corporate run away SCREAMING at the mere mention of Human trials???? Instead, they prefer to pay Shills and KZGT to ‘advertise’ safety…….but they NEVER deliver on the Golden Standard: Peer-reviewed, published scientific Human trials. Even Coca cola has these, but not GMO Corporate. What’s that smell………????

  • We are “falling behind other countries” because Monsanto has insiders in the FDA. Notice that these hypocrites did not ask each other what they eat for dinner? If you believe they are eating GMO-infested foods, think again.

  • I’ve always wanted for people to stop hating on GMO’s, It’s really annoying and the possibilities it brings like reducing starvation worldwide are great. The next step would be animal rights for all animals and that we completely stop the consumption of animals.

  • GMOs are the future, and will help increase effeciency dramatically, they will not hurt us as long as they are approved by officials and might even act as medicine. They can also be modified to be able to live on other planets.

  • Monsanto makes the insecticide that they sprayed in Brazil, causing microencephaly in newborns. And they blamed in on the Zika virus infection. This is typical of American big business. And they have the main media to push their “truth”.

  • We need a concise version of this for normal people to understand! The current day belief is that “latest research says GMO is not harmful”

  • GMO seeds, Chemical Pesticides, chemical Herbicides, chemical Fertilizers all r against Nature and Humans…We need to get Rid of it from Face of Earth……

  • (Debunk it in the replies I really want to know)I just got a thought some bugs relay on crops( let’s just say they become resilient.)that humans eat so if these bugs have nothing to eat and start disappearing and the animals that eat them need to find another source of food and the hole chain system blablablabla…..

  • Scientific research has proven that GMO are dangerous and GMO harm both human health and environment. People who lack scientific understanding and illiterate eat and argue in favor of GMO.

  • PMC 2682994, Golden Rice efficacy study, 2009: Published, peer-reviewed SCIENCE (unlike this KZGT ‘selective truth’ nonsense) Excerpt:
    It should be noted that we closely monitored our subjects for any possible adverse effects after the consumption of Golden Rice and found no evidence of any problems, including allergic reactions or gastrointestinal disturbance. Although this attests to the probable safety of Golden Rice, we acknowledge that only a single serving was fed to each study subject. A much longer exposure with a larger cumulative consumption of Golden Rice would be needed to make definitive assertions regarding the inherent safety of this food for human use. The SCIENCE about Human Safety is FAR FROM DONE, in fact it has not even started: There isn’t a single scientific Human safety study that meets the UN Codex protocols for GMO wholefoods. Not even ONE!

  • This idiot wants you to think he knows something in order to gain ad revenue with click bait.
    THE FACTS: The GMO debate ended last year with release of the NAS study: http://nas-sites.org/ge-crops/2016/05/16/report-in-brief/
    This loser does not want you to know the truth, Obama ended the state labeling initiatives with his token QR code law based on the findings of the definitive study I linked here.

  • Today only 4 countries currently have total bans on GM foods…

    Venezuela
    Zimbabwe
    Bhutan
    Madagascar

    Now i will leave you to check the statistics for corona virus deaths in these 4 countries.

    Then if you wish to continue you can check the cancer statistics, diabetes, sickle sell… the list goes on.

    Please spread awareness on this

  • Kurzgesagt: Let’s make a video that will debunk stupid fallacies and also save the whole biosphere!
    Youtube: Let’s only recommend it to 8 million people

  • From the evolution point of view, the BT GMO can be very dangerous to the ecosystem. The BT gene is a huge advance for a plant to survive in the natural environment, because the plants carrying this gene is resistant to herbivores. If the BT gene leaked from the GMO crop to its wild relatives, the wild plant species will gain this power to poison insects. And this power will very likely to be fixed by natural selection. If this is fixed in a natural population of a plant species, this gene will be very likely moving to other populations. And this will kill a lot of insects and causing the collapse of the ecosystem by disrupting the food chain. Therefore, in fact, the technology itself is not dangerous. The dangerous thing is how to use it and where to use it. the gene flow of a plant population is one of the hardest things to control, because of the pollen. pollen can be carried away by many media, such as insects and wind. That’s why regulations should be applied on the technology. Another issue is the genes used to transform a plant. If the genes used to transform the plant can have interactions with intestine cells, these genes should not be applied for the transformation process. How can they interact? at least, in insect, the digested mRNA of plant tissue eaten by insects can be directly up taken by the cells of the insect guts. These small fragments of mRNA can sometimes interact with the mRNA in the gut cells to initiate RNAi process to silent gene expression in the gut cells of insects. This can be fatal. Therefore, regulations and a lot of researches should be done, before releasing GMO crops and food to the market.

  • Cool video, but a observation. glyphos pesticides aren’t as safe as they may seem, with great potential to cause cancer. Vegetables resistant to them allow their massive use, which ends up increasing their carcinogenic potential for the consumer.

  • I would know how to fee; and what to think about this information if I could see the funding sources behind the production and creation.

  • MURDERS!!!! YOU MONSTERS LIE WHEN YOU SAY GMO IS SAFE�� I HOPE YOU BURN IN HELL!!!! HOW DARE YOU MAKE PEOPLE SICK FROM GMO FOODS JUST TO GET MORE MONEY, YOU LYING MURDERS!!!

  • glyphosate is used to ‘finish’ more than 160 non-gmo crops for the purpose of harvesting and eliminating weeds for the next planting season. schubert is a hero for speaking out!

  • The Covid-19 future is GMOs pushed by Bill Gates. He has funded Monsanto and wants to “Feed the World” using his Philanthrocapitalism. It’s not a shock considering he’s a depopulation pushing eugenicist.

  • Felicia Wu is using the monsanto manual of deceit. How much funding does Oregon State University receive from Monsanto? Millions, the ecological effects cannot be controlled! GM Corn and crops will destroy nature.
