Current safety assessment methods are not fully reliable or systematic. In many products, safety assessment measures have failed to detect evidence of dangerous toxins, allergens or antibiotics. Additionally, little is known about the safety of GMOs and what will be dangerous for consumers. If safety testing is not accurate, how can we know the effects of our food? The US government, compared with the EU, has been extremely apathetic about informing and protecting consumers from genetically modified foods. Without proper labeling, or access to information how can we even avoid GMOs?
