Major attacks on GMOs began in 1998, when British scientist Arpad Pusztai in live television said the sensational results of their research. Rats, which he fed genetically modified potatoes containing a lectin protein, had a number of serious health problems. As a result, it was concluded that the danger of transgenic food. Statement bombshell. Quickly there was a whole army of opponents of GMOs, who supported the conclusions of Pusztai. A little later, his work has been published in the prestigious scientific journal «The Lancet», but in custody have been identified much more modest conclusions. Natural response of the scientific community on this precedent were independent attempts to repeat the experiment, but the results Pusztai, no matter how trying the researchers were not reproduced. A team of specialists in this field to thoroughly investigate the scheme of the experiment, resulting revealed that the work of the scientist has a lot of bad mistakes, because he misread the data. Specific guidance on the mentioned errors were published in the same journal later, the debate joined hundreds of researchers. Simultaneously, the event scientists were accused of conspiracy, organized in order to disguise the negative impact of GMOs on human and animal health. First of all GMO opponents have argued (they continue to argue to this day) that all the experts were bribed by the manufacturer, and Arpad Pusztai broke his career (he was fired 2 days after a loud statement).
The main conclusion to be drawn from the efforts of more than 130 research projects, covering 25 years of research and conducted with the participation of more than 500 independent research groups, is that biotechnology, and in particular GMOs, as such, are no more dangerous than, for example , traditional plant breeding technologies.
There is broad scientific consensus that food on the market derived from GM crops pose no greater risk than conventional food.
No reports of ill effects have been documented in the human population from GM food.
