Study: GE Feed Has Zero Impact on Animal Health


The comprehensive study from University of California-Davis looked at 29 years of livestock productivity and health data.

Forbes is now reporting that the debate about GMO safety is over thanks to a new, trillion-meal study.

They're referring to a just-published study from the Journal of Animal Science.  Being called the most comprehensive study of GMOs and food ever conducted, University of California-Davis scientists reviewed 29 years of livestock productivity and health data from both before and after the introduction of genetically engineered animal feed.

Keep in mind that, globally, food producing animals consume some 70 to 90{ba1edae1e6da4446a8482f505d60d3b8e379ff6dedafe596d9ba4611a4e33a48} of the genetically engineered crop biomass mostly by the way of corn and soybeans.

So, what did they find? That GM feed is safe and nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO feed. 

According to the study, there was no indication of any unusual trends in the health of animals since 1996 when GMO crops were first harvested and they say that considering the size of the dataset, it can reasonably be said that the debate over the impact of is closed: there is zero extraordinary impact.
