EFSA is "the EU risk assessment body for food and feed safety. It provides independent scientific advice to risk managers".
ILSI is a "nonprofit, worldwide organization whose mission is to improve public health and well-being by engaging academic, government and industry scientists in a neutral forum to advance scientific understanding in the areas related to nutrition, food safety, risk assessment, and the environment. ILSI receives its funding from its industry members [my emphasis], governments, and foundations."
This is how the world works - GMO corporations - corporate lobbying - corporations within actual corridors of power.
