The controversial topic of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) is one which has divided the globe.

Some argue that GM crops hold the answer to world hunger, while others insist they are an abomination of nature, and a serious threat to public health and the environment.

With all of the loud voices shouting for and against GM foods, it can be very challenging for us to even understand exactly what GMOs are, let alone whether they present an emerging threat or a developing opportunity.

So, which is it?

Does consuming GM foods pose a genuine health risk? Or are there actually potential public health benefits to GMO production?

Could it be both? And, can you believe everything you read, either pro or against GMOs?

In this one-of-a-kind expert report, we investigate the latest research to offer you a neutral review of both sides of the GMO argument, so that you can learn the science of genetic engineering, digest the facts behind the fears, and decide for yourself.

You will not find anything like our examination freely on the internet. We go to the core of the scientific literature, leaving no stone unturned.
