A new study shows that, contrary to reassurances from industry and regulators, complete genes – including GM genes – can pass from food into human blood.
For many years, the public and scientists have been concerned that GM genes might be incorporated into animal products like meat and milk and consumed by humans.
In 2007 the European Food Safety Authority issued a reassuring statement to the effect that “a large number of experimental studies with livestock have shown that recombinant DNA fragments or proteins derived from GM plants have not been detected in tissues, fluids, or edible products of farm animals like broilers, cattle, pigs, or quails”.
