    neuron, but your logic is faulty about EFSA, about both their original position (which you seem to misunderstand the basis of) and their current position (which you now dismiss because you don't agree with the extrapolated outcome).  

    Reasoned opinion, based on open-mindedness and rigor and consistency required to come to a conclusion, is not what you have demonstrated here.  

    I am not certain why you insist on name-calling, rather than reasoned disagreement, or on the primacy of your passionately held opinion (based on two or more neurons) rather than on proof.   What you criticize the no-GMO folks for is what you evidence here in the emotionalism of your argument.  True you win on passion, but that's not science.  And all the name-calling and the requirement that readers accept your claimed credentials as proof of your position still doesn't change the fact that rather than settling the questions, the questions remain open.   This is not a bad thing in scientific inquiry, it's a good thing.   More research using the new standards may prove the original study wrong, or it may not - you can't, we can't, be afraid of the truth, whatever it is.

    The antidote to ignorance is knowledge.  On all sides.

    Have a good evening.
