Question of the Week - Every day I read that your foods cause cancer. It is true?

Each week, we will answer a question from our readers regarding our operations and community outreach here in Puerto Rico.

This week we answer the question, “every day I read that your foods cause cancer. It is true?”

Put simply, our seeds do not produce foods that cause cancer. In this regard, our seeds produce foods that are as safe and nutritious as conventional ones. We feed our own families food grown from our crops so we take safety very seriously.

Trusted organizations such as the American Medical Association and World Health Organization agree to the long term safety of our crops thanks to the conclusions of hundreds of peer-reviewed studies. Here’s a recent Forbes article outlining the safety of our crops and an FAQ from the World Health Organization about some of the foods we help produce.
