OGM não aumentam alergias

Via ABC News:
"Despite concerns from some critics of genetically modified crops that the foods may raise consumers' risk of allergic reactions, a new study finds no evidence that this is the case.(...)
The researchers, led by Rita Batista of Portugal's National Health Institute in Lisbon, gave 77 study participants allergy tests to see whether they reacted differently to the GM corn and soy than they did to conventional varieties.
None of them did, according to findings published in the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology."

Menos argumentos a favor dos que pretendem impedir a o cultivo e comercialização destes produtos. E há quem precise deles para sobreviver.
