Mystify, why do you believe the burden of proof of GMO safety is on me?
You “assert” they are safe, I would like to see YOU post one study on the long-term reproductive safety of gmo crops. That is, show me who can prove that eating them for generations has no adverse affect on fertility, fetal development, morphology, or immune system function for humans or any animal, for that matter.
