Incidentally, the same experiment was also conducted by a genetic seed manufacturing company Monsato. The firm had refused to publish the results of the experiment. Monsato had approached Taiwan to sell their GM foods and they were severely condemned by the HUF who demanded an evidence for the safety of the company's products.
The advertisemnet quoted a Taiwanese professor and a South Korean food company official as saying that there is no clear scientific evidence that eating genetically modified food is harmful to human health.
The advertisement also stated that Mr Ming-kung described that genetic foods are so common that it is difficult and meaningless to label them, so FDA would only label food products that do not have genetic material.
The HUF added that the negative effects of GM foods would appear in the long run and that government must pay attention to prioritize food safety in the interest of the public.
