Australia: GM wheat health concerns unfounded
“Having read the claims in detail, I have absolutely no fear in volunteering to serve as a human volunteer to test the CSIRO wheat.”
Even CSIRO questioned Heinemann’s data, saying, “The claims had not been published in a peer-reviewed journal but would be considered by the organization and regulatory bodies along with all other relevant research.”
Although trials of this particular GM wheat have been asked to be suspended, there is some dispute as to whether this variety has been in trials. Confusion was perpetuated when Terry Redman, spokesman for the agriculture ministry, said the trial was not over yet and therefore it was too early to talk about any results. However, another spokesperson has said this variety was not in included in any trials.
