Safety Assessment of Genetically Modified Feed: Is There Any Difference From Food?
The regulatory framework of GM crops intended for animal feed is reviewed using the available information on GM food as the baseline and the concentration of novel proteins in different plant tissues and level of exposure to GM feedstuff in the diet of target animals should be considered.
Genetically Modified Foods and the Probable Risks on Human Health
Changing existing features of living beings or giving new features to them by changing the natural gene sequence through biotechnological methods is called “genetically modified organisms”, in short

It is in this context, that the development and use of genetically modified (GM) crops could offer considerable potential and be a model for world food production.
Food production and food safety
Modern food production has reduced the cost and increased the variety of food available, but this centralisation of the food supply presents an opportunity for foodborne pathogens and toxins to infect and poison large numbers of consumers.


Genetically modified foods
This article paints a broad picture of genetically modified foods and provides a lead to sources of information by addressing three specific points:Genes change every day by natural mutation and recombination, creating new biological variations.
The paradoxes of genetically modified foods
It is important to ensure that a desire to protect the public health—not the profits of multinational organisations—underpins all decisions on the introduction of genetically modified foods.
