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.
But the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are not just asking people to take their word for it. They're putting the evidence up on a website so skeptics — and they know there are plenty of them — can check for themselves.

Here in Oregon, Josephine County hysterics tried to enact a ban on GMO crops - and just got shot down in the court system. Hysterics in Lane County, evidently suffering from learning disabilities, are trying to get a GMO ban on the ballot for the November elections.
"Eat Tofu!" "Wear Cotton!"
