GMOs will Kill us All

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetically modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans. They have done a great job of convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are promoting really say, and do they have any flaws? Or, in actual fact, are GMOs going to kill us all? In my talk, Myles Power will critique several highly referenced anti-GM papers, looking past their veneer of good science, and discovering what they really say about GMOs and the people who promote them.

This is what Myles has to say for himself: My name is Myles Power, and I run the educational YouTube channel 'powerm1985'. I spend what little free time I have sharing my love of SCIENCE! through home experiments, visiting sites of scientific interest, and angrily ranting at pseudoscience proponents. I am also one of the founding members of the podcast 'The League of Nerds' — which I co-host with James from 'The History of Infection'.

Myles has previously spoken at GMSS about AIDS denialism.
