Of course the fact that no harm has been established is not the same as proving that GMOs pose no dangers. When the organism for example crop is grown on large areas there are the chances of unexpected effects on the host environment and ecosystem Van 2006.
Other potential risks may lie in incorporation of transgenic DNA into the genomes of resident gut microflora though this is likely to be very improbable or a change in the pathogen spectrum of the transgenic fish leading to it hosting a new pathogen which happens to be also a human pathogen.
What are the potential risks of gmos. Introgression mutations and selection pressures continue to take place. GMOs could be one factor in the dwindling populations of wild life like bees Monarch butterflies other pollinators. One risk of particular concern relating to GMOs is the risk of horizontal gene transfer HGT.
Studies have shown that feeding GMO crops to pigs has led to stomach ulcers. Consumption of GMOs and the rise in complex disorders of brain development. So far no medical harm to humans has been traced to ingesting GMOs.
Perhaps Goodalls greatest concern is the long term risk to animals and humans who consume products made with GMOs. GM fish species may present a problem for other aquatic species Potential Impact Of GMOs On Humans Human Health. As genetically modified GM foods are starting to intrude in our diet concerns have been expressed regarding GM food safety.
Consuming genetically modified organisms GMOs like soybeans and corn might cause unexpected effects like allergic reactions. Toxins produced by genetically modified plants affecting or killing non-target organisms. Spreading of genetically modified plants beyond controlled areas to become super weeds Pests developing resistance to the toxins produced by genetically modified plants.
After the release of genetically modified organism based on Young 2005 they interact with the environment. Animal toxicity studies with certain GM foods have shown. HGT is the acquisition of foreign genes via transformation transduction and conjugation by organisms in a variety of environmental situations.
One concern is the potential for allergic reactions. These concerns as well as the limitations of the procedures followed in the evaluation of their safety are presented. This genetically engineered artificial hormone created by the Monsanto Corporation for injecting.
Theres currently a scientific consensus that GMOs overall arent a significant risk for human health. Furthermore soy is the premium GMO crop and most milk is laden with rBGH hormone a genetically engineered artificial hormone injected into dairy cows 5.
