Fate of GM food-derived DNA in the Human Body
DNA derived from GM food in the human body can be found in the blood and tissues of humans and animals, and plant-food-miRNAs can survive digestion, enter the body and affect gene expression patterns in different organs.

Promoter Used In GM Crops Works In Salmon Over Time
A new study has confirmed for the first time in a vertebrate that the S35 CaMV promoter, used in most GM crops, is able to drive expression of a transgene for at least 1.5 years in salmon.

Escape of genetically engineered organisms and unintentional transboundary movements: Overview of recent and upcoming cases and the new risks from SynBio organisms
This report gives an overview of cases of uncontrolled spread and/or gene flow from genetically engineered organisms that can enable them to become established, persist and propagate in the environment, independently of their intended usage.

Inadequate Scientific Evidence to Declare GM Herbicide Tolerant Crops Safe or Sustainable
A sustainability assessment of GM herbicide tolerant crops has found scientific evidence lacking to rule them safe or sustainable. It points to empirical evidence showing possible adverse effects and to incomplete information and research on GM crops.
