The journal Nature acknowledged that a "large block of scientists . . . denigrate research by other legitimate scientists in a knee-jerk, partisan, emotional way that is not helpful in advancing knowledge." Attempts by media to expose problems are also often censored.... http://www.responsibletechnology.org/10-Reasons-to-Avoid-GMOs

The federal government declared formaldehyde to be a known human carcinogen in 2011.       ... From an e-mail from the Environmental Working Group, January 29, 2014.
