This article discusses how scientists that are ANTI GMO are unable to assist with the US Environmental Protection Agency via a new law. This law has not been passed yet but if it was to be passed the consequences could be dangerous. According to the article, "This means that the EPA can no longer be advised on their own research regarding GMOs or pharmaceutical drugs like antibiotics or vaccines. Can you say circular reasoning, or insular logic? This ‘reform’ means industry-appointed experts will determine what is ‘safe’ and what is not safe for the public, and that the scientists with the most knowledge about the risks pertaining to GMOs and pharmaceuticals will be gagged" Overall it would definitely hurt the EPA in my opinion because they are not willing to hear both sides of the argument.
