An Illusory Consensus behind GMO Health Assessment
Prominent scientists and policymakers assert with confidence that there is no scientific controversy over the health effects of genetically modified organisms (GMOs)—that genetically modified cropsExpand
Some core CSFs
Precautions and Claims for "Safety" Based on Inadequate Risk Assessment are Hazardous and Expose All Concerned to Risk.
FRAME’s role in this is to encourage the development of better, scientifically more-advanced, methods for hazard identification, based on better understanding of toxicological processes at the cellular and molecular levels, rather than on the mindless check-list use of black-box animal models.

Expression of the insecticidal bean alpha-amylase inhibitor transgene has minimal detrimental effect on the nutritional value of peas fed to rats at 30% of the diet.
Transgenic peas expressing bean alpha-AI gene could be used in rat diets at 300 g/kg level without major harmful effects on their growth, metabolism and health, raising the possibility that transgenic peas may also be used at this level in the diet of farm animals. Expand
Alterations in Clinically Important Phytoestrogens in Genetically Modified, Herbicide-Tolerant Soybeans
The growing clinical interest in and use of soybean-based food products or extracts to increase dietary phytoestrogen intake makes the precise composition of the key biologically active ingredientsExpand
Red kidney bean lectin is a potent cholecystokinin releasing stimulus in the rat inducing pancreatic growth
In vivo and in vitro PHA is a potent stimulus for CCK release in the rat, thereby inducing pancreatic growth, whereas intestinal growth is stimulated by a CCK independent mechanism. Expand
The composition of glyphosate-tolerant soybean seeds is equivalent to that of conventional soybeans.
The analytical results demonstrated the GTS lines are equivalent to the parental, conventional soybean cultivar. Expand
Isolation of a lectin from the pericarp of potato (Solanum tuberosum) fruits.
A lectin has been isolated from potato fruits by affinity adsorption on to glutaraldehyde-fixed erythrocytes and elution with oligomers of N-acetylglucosamine. Expand
