Systems Biology Study Finds GMOs not “substantially equivalent”
A novel systems biology study shows that GM soy is not "substantially equivalent" to conventional soy, and that the US FDA's regulatory standard of "substantial equivalence" to assess the safety of GM foods is "outdated and unscientific".
