AcademicsReview.org provides in this link a point-by-point analysis of Jeffrey Smith’s claims against GMO foods and genetic engineering, holding each up to peer-reviewed, international science. The founders, two professors from the United States and Australia, invite other scientists to join the mission. They also report on the credentials of Jeffrey Smith -- one of the most vocal aniti-GMO voices in the world. Both links deserve your attention.
