Website About Safety of GM CropsMarch 31, 2010
Two professors have created a new website called Academics Review (http://academicsreview.org) to set the record straight about the proven safety of GM crops. Dr. David Tribe is a biotechnologist and microbiologist at the University of Melbourne and Dr. Bruce Chassy works in food safety and human nutrition at the University of Illinois.
The website analyzes negative claims about GM crops on the basis of available evidence, the peer-revlewed scientific literature, and scientific logic. The website is designed as a platform for critical scientific review of issues relating to food, food safety, agriculture, nutrition and GM crops. In the coming months, other issues and expert opinion will be added to the website.
For more information contact Bruce Chassy at email@example.com.
