This study was funded by the king of GMO"s himself. Why would you or anybody take this study seriously? It's equivalent to a study done claiming alcohol is healthy, but funded by major alcohol companies...

The only thing coming from these studies is just more studies and the passionate debate about them.
For me I just use common sense, and screw all the studies.
The only shocking thing to me about this particular study was the 100 billion animals used. How can any corporation boast a product that took 100 billion animals in an attempt to show safety?

I believe that somebody answered that question in a previews post a few months ago, the Monsanto give the choice to their employees to either eat food with GMO or organic foods.
Myth: Monsanto Only Serves Non-GMO and Organic Foods in Its Cafeterias Myth: Monsanto Only Serves Non-GMO and Organic Foods in Its Cafeteria. Fact: The food in our cafeterias is no different than what you’d find in most cafeterias, restaurants or supermarkets – some of it is from GM crops and some of it isn’t.
We don’t go out of our way to have either GM or non-GM food in our cafeteria, with the exception of occasional specialty meals that showcase food grown with our seeds. There is a belief that Monsanto won’t serve GM foods – or that we only serve organic food – in our cafeterias. It’s entirely untrue. Our cafeterias serve all types of foods – including foods with ingredients from GM crops – every day. None of it is singled out as conventional or organic.
Occasionally, though, we will have special menu items that feature our products. For example, over the summer, our cafeteria specifically featured menu items that include GM sweet corn, and we held a farmer’s market to directly offer employees an opportunity to purchase GM sweet corn. (See photos and a video on our blog.) And to address a related myth – each of us purchases food for our families at grocery stores in the communities where we live and work. We do not have a private organic farm at our headquarters for our executives or employees.
The need to label GMOs especially is because they are health hazards and anyone should be able to choose if either they want to eat # or not
