[GMOs] After Two Decades of GMOs, Scientists Find They Live up to Their Promise

Genetically modified corn had higher yields and lower levels of dangerous toxins produced by fungus.

Italian researchers did a meta-analysis on over 6,000 peer-reviewed studies from the past 21 years.

The analysis, which was not limited to studies conducted in the U.S. and Canada, showed that GMO corn varieties have increased crop yields worldwide 5.6 to 24.5 percent when compared to non-GMO varieties. They also found that GM corn crops had significantly fewer (up to 36.5 percent less, depending on the species) mycotoxins — toxic chemical byproducts of crop colonization.
