Urging the Greenpeace, known for its anti-GM crops stand that led many organisations oppose to modern plant breeding, to stop its efforts to block introduction of a genetically engineered crops, the letter noted that "there has never been a single confirmed case of a negative health outcome for humans or animals from their consumption.
"Their environmental impacts have been shown repeatedly to be less damaging to the environment, and a boon to global biodiversity."
The letter campaign, supporting GMOs, was organised by the Nobel laureate Richard J Roberts who is currently chief scientific officer of the New England Biolabs. Roberts along with other scientist Phillip A Sharp had jointly won the Nobel prize in medicine in 1993 for their discoveries of split genes.
"We are scientists. We understand the logic of science. It's easy to see what Greenpeace is doing is damaging and is anti-science", Roberts told The Washington Post on Wednesday. "Greenpeace initially, and then some of their allies, deliberately went out of their way to scare people. It was a way for them to raise money for their cause".
A day later at a press conference in Washington on Thursday he sought to explain these points and expressed that he decided to take on the issue after hearing from scientists as to how their research was being impeded by anti-GMO campaigns from the Greenpeace and other organisations across the globe.
The letter, that includes a running list of signatories at supportprecisionagriculture.org, narrates in detail why "the opposition based on emotion and dogma contradicted by data must be stopped" when the world has to meet the food and nutrition demand of a growing global population.
