The scientific community overwhelmingly supports the use of genetically modified crops. Here is a partial list of the prominent groups in favor of GMOs:
American Medical Association
National Academy of Sciences
World Health Organization (UN)
Food and Agriculture Organization (UN)
Chief Scientific Adviser to the European Commission
Department of Agriculture (US)
Food and Drug Administration (US)
Environmental Protection Agency (US)

But, apparently, an endorsement of GMOs from the world's most preeminent scientists, medical doctors, and technocrats isn't enough for some groups.

Here is a partial list of environmental organizations which are opposed to genetic modification. Note: They regularly perpetuate information which scientists have already shown to be incorrect.

Union of Concerned Scientists
