Data from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare is indicating a dramatic rise in hospitalisations for food anaphylaxis and other adverse food reactions. These increases have coincided with the introduction of GM foods and are occurring across all age groups, though more severely amongst the young. Allergy is one of the identified potential hazards of GM food and it is reasonable to ask questions about causal relationships. However we frequently hear that GM foods are fully tested prior to commercial release. MADGE Australia (Mothers are Demystifying Genetic Engineering) has been reading into the science of GM safety assessment and presents some information and views in this release.
