 Can Science Give Us The Tools For Recognizing Possible Health Risks Of GM Foods - ARPAD PUSZTAI / Nutrition and Health, ...
In contrast, the possibility that novel GM foods expressing lectin genes may represent health hazards for mammalian consumers does not appear to have been generally recognized let alone rigorously excluded.
Thus, as has been noted there are many opinions on the safety of GM food but very few data published in peer-reviewed science journals (Domingo, 2000).
There is therefore a growing realization, particularly in medical and nutritional science that the presently available safety testing methods are inadequate and need to be further developed.
