There is stark disagreement on how to assess the safety of Monsanto’s new eight-trait GM corn called “SmartStax”.
Health Canada did not assess “SmartStax” corn for human health safety because it does not classify “SmartStax” as a “Novel Food” - this is because they have already approved the eight GM traits individually in separate crops.
Does Health Canada need to assess the safety of this stacked trait GM food? Is Health Canada contradicting the UN international Codex food safety guideline?
