5 Human Health Effects of Genetically Engineered Crops. In this chapter, the committee examines the evidence that substantiates or negates specific hypotheses and claims about the health risks and benefits associated with foods derived from genetically engineered (GE) crops.
During this era, new genetically modified organisms (GMOs) including apples and potatoes were introduced in the United States. According to the American Farm Bureau, in 2016, "Globally, 18 million farmers grow biotech crops; 90 percent of them on small, resource-poor farms in developing countries." American Farm Bureau. Timeline.
If you think organic’s healthy, you need to be careful of keeping it as long as you would any other food, because it will go bad faster and there are more possibilities for you to get food poisoning from it than GMO crops. GMO crops are just as safe for human consumption as any other food in stores.
Are you a troll for the food industry, or what? Many GMO’s have been proven dangerous. If some research has manipulated MSG results, so what. I am a retired science writer. I KNOW the food industry (including the Department of Agriculture), Big Pharma, and many other industries manipulate research results on a regular basis.
The Environmental Protection Act 1990, Part VI, Genetically Modified Organisms, Sections 106-127.

This increases glyphosate residues in animal and human food.

With all this evidence (and this is by no means a complete list) you may be wondering why curcumin isn’t widely prescribed for the prevention and treatment of cancer. People in India get curcumin by eating turmeric at almost every meal. Most Americans are not willing to do this.
Wild potato species occur throughout the Americas, from the United States to Uruguay.
