Genetic Literacy Project: Study: Food Products from Livestock Raised on GMO Feed No Different Than Those Fed Conventional Grain

By Alison Van Eenennaam and Amy Young –

This review summarizes the available scientific literature on the detection of dietary DNA and protein in animal products and briefly discusses the implications of mandatory GE labeling for products from animals that have consumed GE feed.

Researchers have concluded that there is nothing to suggest that DNA from GE crops behaves any differently in the gastrointestinal tract of animals than non-GE counterparts. Absorption of dietary DNA across the intestinal wall appears to be a normal process that does not have adverse effects on food animals, regardless of whether the DNA is transgenic or endogenous.
