13. And if they are offered a version of Cotton that is resistant to the Jewel Beetle
what dangerous side effects are there? To date: None.
A java plant resistant to the Coffe Borer beetler? To date: none.

IS there a single GMO plant that has been found to harm humans?

The potential environmental dangers are a little more clear, such as possibly turning a former food crop into a choking weed. But harmful to humans? Are there ANY demonstrable side effects yet?


This reminds me of the damn food irradiation debate, which has been effectively lost in the US, and pisses me off to no end.
