A huge amount of scientists and doctors have concerns about GMO and the health threats they pose. The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) did animal tests and reports that GMO dangers may include infertility, immune system disorders, accelerated aging, GI system changes, insulin regulation problems, and allergies.
