This work, published in the journal “Journal of Animal Science” recognizes the safety of genetically modified feed (MG) for cattle destined for human consumption, feed whose risk experts call “low or almost nonexistent.” The study analyzed data from 1983 (before that I think GM introduced) and 2011, a detailed analysis of the response of animals to different feed and its possible effects.
This report notes that the United States “over 95% of the animals for human consumption eat feed containing GM ingredients”. This percentage decreases if the global figure, varying between 70 and 90% of cattle taken. According to the study, representing more than 100,000 million animals since GM crops were introduced, it has not found any evidence of risk to the health of livestock, as well as any difference in productivity.
Similarly, it is impossible to distinguish differences in the nutritional profile of products of animal origin after consuming GM food. Livestock is currently very dependent on the power supplies MG and won the vast majority of the world is included in their diet GM foods.
The study predicts a sharp increase in prices of food sold as “GMO-free” as the global expansion of GM crops is increasingly global. In fact, the market for animals that have not consumed GM foods is already today a niche in the US market.
