Food Standards Australia New Zealand published a report on the risk assessment and regulation of ag biotech crops and foods developed using gene silencing. The report concluded the weight of scientific evidence “does not support the view that small double-stranded RNAs in foods are likely to have adverse consequences for humans.” May 21, 2013 

As a related resource, The International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation released “Food Biotechnology: A Communicator’s Guide to Improving Understanding, 3rd Edition,” revising a 2003 version to reflect new developments in food biotechnology research, regulation, and product availability from the last decade, as well as new consumer insights and changing communication methods, such as the advent of digital media.
