Where is the safety testing of GM soya?

Below is the 'evidence' presented by scientists when asked to show studies which 'prove' the safety of GM soya.

Two problems are immediately apparent :

1. Not one of these studies proves the safety of GM soya

2. Every study is either carried out by Monsanto, by teams containing Monsanto staff, or by an organisation funded by Monsanto.

So, the eternal question remains... Where is the independent safety testing which proves the safety of the GM soya currently being sold worldwide today?

Answer : There is NONE
