Absolutely Karen! Many of us here at Monsanto are parents and obviously care about our kids’ safety and health. Hundreds of specialized scientists such as geneticists, nutritionists, plant scientists, and physicians that work at Monsanto have spent a lot of time thinking about and studying GMOs. Because of the intense work these people do, we all feel confident in feeding them to our kids. A big part of that confidence comes from knowing that each and every product is tested to ensure it’s as safe as other foods. Additionally, several independent experts have looked at GMOs and come to the same conclusion. This includes groups like the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, the World Health Organization and government agencies like the FDA.
Shauna: Hi my name is Shauna and I work for Monsanto. I get a lot of questions about GMOs. One of them being are they safe? Foods grown from GMOs in the market today are safe as other foods in the grocery store. A wide range of regulatory bodies, independent scientists and heath associations have evaluated them and confirmed their safety. I'm a mom and when I have questions about my kids health. I often search on the internet for more information. It's really important to me to look for credible information. When it comes to GMOs, there's a lot of misinformation on the internet. Some of it even implies that Monsanto doesn't care at all about the safety of food. As somebody who has worked a long time researching the safety of our products. I can tell you there's nothing further from the truth. In fact, there's more than 500 scientists just like me who are devoted to testing and insuring the safety of our products. With all of that research, I feel very confident feeding my family foods grown from GMOs. I hope that answers your question.
