Genetically modified crops have the potential to eliminate hunger and starvation in millions of people, especially in developing countries because the genetic modification can produce large amounts of foods that are more nutritious. Large quantities are produced because genetically modified crops are more resistant to pests and drought. They also contain greater amounts of nutrients, such as proteins and vitamins. However, there are concerns about the safety of genetically modified crops. The… 
A perspective on genetically modified food crops
TLDR
This review will focus on perspectives of the genetically modified food crops and concerns about the safety of genetically modified crops.
Are Genetically Engineered Crops Safe or Dangerous
Genetically modified crops have the potential to solve many of the World’s hunger and malnutrition problems. They also protect and preserve the environment by increasing yield and reducing reliance
Methods of Strain Improvement for Crop Improvement
TLDR
The current investigation is focused on different strategies used to improve beneficial strain for crop productivity, using recombinant DNA technology.
Risk Assessment of Genetically Modified Plants: A Review
TLDR
In this review, the risk assessment of genetically modified plants is discussed in detail and a balance in the number of research groups, depending on their research, a variety of GM crops are varied as for traditional non-genetically modified plants.
Insect-resistant transgenic crops: retrospect and challenges
TLDR
The first part of this review focuses the development of different insect-resistantcrops and various strategies adapted to delay resistance development in insect pests, while the second part addresses the challenges and future prospects of insect- resistant crops.
Genetically modified foods (GMOs); a review of genetic engineering. J. Life Sci. Biomed., 2019; 9(6): 157-163. www.jlsb.science-line.com;
TLDR
Scientists need to consider the types of applications of genetic engineering which will appear on the commercial market as well as develop procedures which will minimize potential biological and ecological hazards of the technology.

Assessment of the allergenic potential of foods derived from genetically engineered crop plants.
TLDR
A science-based, decision tree approach to assess the allergenic concerns associated with the introduction of gene products into new plant varieties and a balanced judgement of all the available data generated during allergenicity assessment will assure the safety of foods derived from genetically engineered crops.
Stability of food allergens to digestion in vitro
TLDR
The data are consistent with the hypothesis that food allergens must exhibit sufficient gastric stability to reach the intestinal mucosa where absorption and sensitization can occur, and indicate the stability to digestion is a significant and valid parameter that distinguishes food allergen from nonallergens.
Potential Health Risks of Genetically Modified Organisms : How Can Allergens be Assessed and Minimized ?
TLDR
The pathophysiological mechanisms of food allergies are distinct from other food intolerances such as gluten sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease) that are due to nontoxic, nonimmune reactions to foods even though symptoms may resemble those of “true” food allergies.
Safety and advantages of Bacillus thuringiensis-protected plants to control insect pests.
TLDR
Plants modified to express insecticidal proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (referred to as Bt-protected plants) provide a safe and highly effective method of insect control and reduce reliance on conventional chemical pesticides.
Glyphosate-tolerant corn: the composition and feeding value of grain from glyphosate-tolerant corn is equivalent to that of conventional corn (Zea mays L.).
Glyphosate-tolerant (Roundup Ready) corn line GA21 has been developed by genetic modification to tolerate glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide. The purpose of this study was to
The global food fight.
TLDR
The international debate over gm crops pits a cautious, consumer driven Europe against aggressive American industry, yet the real stakeholders in this debate are poor farmers and poorly fed consumers in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
Identification of a Brazil-nut allergen in transgenic soybeans.
TLDR
The study shows that an allergen from a food known to be allergenic can be transferred into another food by genetic engineering.

TLDR
The impact of Bt corn pollen from current commercial hybrids on monarch butterfly populations is negligible, according to a 2-year study by scientists in several states and in Canada.
