To ensure public confidence in genetically modified foods (GMF), the U.S. biotech. industry recognized the need for oversight by the FDA. In 1992 the FDA pub. guidelines to ensure that co's. developing GMF worked with the FDA in assessing the safety of these foods. This report: identifies the types of potential human health risks (HR) assoc. with GMF & experts' views regarding the adequacy of tests used to evaluate these HR; describes FDA's controls for ensuring that co's. submit test data & identifies experts' views of the agency's overall evaluations of these foods; describes potential changes in future GMF & any assoc. changes in tests to evaluate them; & identifies experts' views on the necessity & feasibility of monitoring the long-term HR of GMF.Dyckman, Lawrence J. is the author of 'Genetically Modified Foods Experts View Regimen of Safety Tests As Adequate, but Fdas Evaluation Process Could Be Enhanced' with ISBN 9780756731656 and ISBN 0756731658.
