GMOs - Are Allergies Connected with Genetically-Engineered Food?

0822 GMO-jenny-avery-gilesGenetically-modified crops were introduced in the United States about 18 years ago. First, there were tomatoes -- then soybeans, potatoes and corn. Since then, more farmland has been devoted to these plants, which have a gene added to their DNA, giving them helpful traits such as pesticide resistance. But during this same period, a growing number of children have developed allergies to food. Despite assurances of safety from biotech companies and government agencies, the parallel timing has raised suspicion. Harvest Public Media’s Camille Phillips checked out the research.
