[...] and corresponding graphic representations to be highly misleading and irresponsible,” said a statement published by 17 scientists, researchers, and health [...]
Farmer, Biotech seed company president retired Pioneer Hibred limited, Canada. GMO corn soybeans have been eaten in North America now for 15 years with no helth problems. Dr Oz should be sued out of existence for his misrepresentations.
Unfortuante how sub-standard science is being projected by several people to mislead the general public.

Here in Africa, we have viewed Dr Oz programme as an insult to the intelligence of the scientific community. In our recent meeting in Nairobi Kenya, stakeholders from East Africa felt aggrieved bt Dr Oz Programme given that biotechnology and especially GM crops give the best promise for reducing incidences of food insecurity and low productivity on our continent. In fact stakeholders from accross the divide including relevant government agencies that regulate GM crops activities were of the view that Dr Oz programme would not have any significant impact on the resolve of governments in the region to embrace biotechnology for food production, income generation and reduction of poverty amongst africans.

It is unfortunate that this sort of malicious reports are being tolerated by genuine scientifc community. As socially responsible scientists, we must join together to thwart any attempt to subvert the scientific truth about GM foods which can help feed millions of people.

Dr. Oz should reevaluate his code of ethics.

Misleading the lay public about a technology which can potentially address the problems of the poor is totally irresponsible. The half-truths and patently false assertions made in the television program has to be exposed.
We should be thanking scientists who created GMO technology that allows farmers to be more efficient, consumers to benefit from quality foods they desire and the environment to thrive because it takes fewer natural resources to produce the same crop. www.thedairymom.blogspot.com/2012/10/facts-about-gmos.html

Popular media cannot replace rigorous peer review, and it cannot continue to present primary literature to the public as though peer review showing bias or poor study design did not exist.
Do no harm, indeed.

It is a priviledge to sign a petition along with so many respected and bright minds of science worlwide.
There comes a point where we all pay a high price for “free speech” in the US. This behavior sounds more like crying “fire” in a crowded theater. This Dr. seems to have forgotten “first do no harm”: by undermining the respect for scientific knowledge among his audience, he risks undermining their ability or willingness to seek appropriate medical treatment in general. To me, this is unethical.
