The evidence for and against the safety of GMOs in the food supply is confusing, and can be difficult for the layperson to understand.

He said "Most of these GMO genes that have gone bad are cancer activators."

Dr. Nkosana Nartey speaking on Accra-based Adom FM noted that there is a case study of a rabbit which was fed with GMO food developing tumor to confirm the deadly nature of GMO products.
