Safety of Genetically Engineered Foods: Approaches to Assessing Unintended Health Effects
increasing understanding of the bioactivity in humans, if any, of secondary metabolites in commonly consumed foods,
developing more sensitive tools for assessing potential unintended health effects (e.g., in whole food), and
improving methods for tracking and tracing exposure in GE food.
The recommendations presented in this chapter reflect the committee’s application of the framework it has developed to questions of identification and assessment of unintended adverse health effects from foods produced by all forms of genetic modification, including genetic engineering and they can serve as a guide for evaluation of future technologies.
