Below is a list of lowly possible risks GM foods/food crops might consequent: - Antibiotic resistance - Possibility of introducing allergens and toxins to food - Adversely changing the nutrient content of a crop - Creation of "super" weeds and other environmental risks - Accidental contamination between genetically modified and non-genetically modified foods My
