The insertion of a novel gene into an organism is dangerous.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: The University of Minnesota's School of Public Health website says that "all genetically modified foods that have been approved are considered by the government to be as safe as their traditional counterparts and are generally unregulated". Direction of resistance / implied resistance: The site points out that "there are several types of potential health effects that could result from the insertion of a novel gene into an organism. Health effects of primary concern to safety assessors are production of new allergens, increased toxicity, decreased nutrition, and antibiotic resistance (Bernstein et al., 2003)".

Removal of resistance: A leading supermarket website says "Whilst the latest scientific research and current Government advice is that GM ingredients do not present any risks to human health, we acknowledge the concerns of our customers and do not permit the use of GM crops, ingredients, additives or derivatives in any [NAME]'s own label food, drink, pet food, dietary supplements or floral products, this remains the case". Unification: The industrial world, in places, does not appear to be interested in a completely open and transparent dialogue between society, corporations, science and state regarding the ever more widely understood dangers of "the insertion of a novel gene into an organism".
