An applicant for Bt corn field-testing here in the Philippines claims
that "WHO and FAO have declared Insect-Protected Corn is as safe for
food and feed as any conventionally derived corn varieties."

I would like to ask help in confirming whether the World Health Org.
and the Food and Agric. Org. really declared such a thing. In fact, I
would appreciate getting the actual text of the latest WHO or FAO
statement on this issue.

Thank you very much.
