    As a scientist who participated in this show I was never asked to share the stage with Jeffrey Smith, nor did I refuse to do so. That does not mean I consider the things Jeffrey Smith says to be “controversial” – I consider them to be untrue. I work in the field of Animal Science and these “problems” from an ill-defined “variety of diseases” in laboratory animals and livestock that are alluded to by Jeffrey Smith have not been documented in the hundreds of animal feeding studies that have been done with GMO diets. The overwhelming majority of these – including long-term and multigenerational feeding studies (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22155268) conclude “GM plants are nutritionally equivalent to their non-GM counterparts and can be safely used in food and feed.”

    The handful of studies that disagree with this scientific consensus have typically been small in size and poorly designed (e.g. Seralini study), and the results have not been replicated. As a scientist I know it is important to be objective and consider the entire body of evidence when forming an opinoin, and not focus on one or two studies that might agree with your beliefs, while failing to consider a large body of evidence that clearly demonstrates the exact opposite.
