“New crops developed through artificial selection and mutagenesis are not studied to this extent…

There are no risks that apply to GMOs currently on the market that don’t also apply to other breeding methods. Regardless of whether you think enough research has been done, zero has been done on crops with other breeding methods.

StarLink was conclusive. https://www.cdc.gov/media/pressrel/r010613a.htm

L-Tryptophan was bad because it was l-tryptophan. Excessive amounts were bad, whether created by GE bacteria or not. Which, again, is my point. It is not the breeding method, but the trait itself that should be examined.

Meanwhile selective breeding gave us toxic organic zucchini and a toxic potato.

Perhaps a system more like what Canada uses would be appropriate. If a new trait is created, regardless of breeding method, safety tests are called for.

By the way, even though GM testing is technically optional for companies none of them have actually put anything on the market without following the optional federal guidelines.
