The National Academies of Science produced a 400-page report full of equivocations and recommendations they know will be ignored. A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine on GE crops and technology was met with cheers from the biotech industry, but little meaningful scrutiny by the mainstream media.

Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a new method to rapidly detect a single virus in urine, as reported this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. While the technique presently...Show More Summary
A massive National Academy of Science review of hundreds of studies on genetically engineered (GE) food crops, comparing the US, where the crops have been used heavily for 20 years, and Europe, where use is rare, finds no reliable evidence that these crops pose any harm to human or environmental health.

A study published (paywall) today (May 16) in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences indicates that when we act unethically, we’re more likely to remember these actions less clearly. Researchers from Northwestern University...Show More Summary
The National Academy of Sciences has completed a comprehensive report on GMO crops. The National Academy of Sciences — probably the country's most prestigious scientific group — has reaffirmed its judgment that GMOs are safe to eat … The...Show More Summary
I don’t know how many times I’ve said it: Monsanto may be an evil company, they may eat kittens and sacrifice babies atop flaming piles of stolen wages, but that doesn’t mean genetically modified food is unsafe to eat. Despite the scientific consensus that GMOs are safe, the public retains a negative view of them. In fact, a […]
Newly published research suggests that bullying has serious consequences for our society, long after middle school ends.Published by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the giant book of research on the phenomenon of childhood bullying labels it a "serious public health problem." The research, which was partly supported ... More »
Or so the National Academies of Sciences say Preconceived notions about genetically engineered or modified foods (GEs/GMOs) and their impact on humans and animals are incorrect, according to a recent report from the National Academies...Show More Summary
The National Academies of Sciences has released the most comprehensive report on GMO crops to date.
Safe but sorry. The National Academy of Sciences says that, after two years of research, it's reached a consensus on whether GMOs should be avoided like the plague. The nation's top scientific advisory group has ruled that they're safe...Show More Summary
A committee set up by the National Academy of Science poured over more than 900 research publications investigating the effects of genetic meddling in corn, soybean, and cotton. Their results were counterintuitive, to say the least.
The National Academies of Science has just released its long-awaited report “Genetically Engineered Crops: Experiences and Prospects.” I was a reviewer on this report months ago and as far as I can tell it hasn’t changed much from when I sent in my comments. Here’s what I said: In light of public polarization of opinion […]
A new report from the National Academy of Sciences knocked down some pro-GMO claims, such as that they've boosted crop yields, and urged federal agencies to change the way these foods are regulated.
Following a review of almost 900 studies, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine reported today that genetically modified organisms — GMOs — pose no more of a health risk than traditionally bred crops. However,...Show More Summary
A report published by the National Academies of Science, Medicine and Engineering found that genetically modified crops pose no health danger to humans or animals. The issues are complex.
A new study of genetically modified crop technology by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine offers a mix of observations about the controversial crops, and takes U.S. regulators to task for an ongoing lack of...Show More Summary
The report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine is not expected to end the highly polarized debate over the technology.
