Las variedades transgénicas de cultivos han sido consumidas por hombres y animales en muchos países, por lo que se dispone de una gran cantidad de datos y observaciones con el fin de juzgar su seguridad y utilidad.
A group of nine science and policy experts prepared this evaluation of the process by which U.S. regulatory agencies determine the safety of biotechnology-derived crops. The authors found that the U.S. regulatory process is comprehensive and meets its charge of ensuring that biotechnology-derived foods are at least as safe as foods derived using traditional breeding techniques.
