SUMMARY: Genetically modified foods have been around for about two decades and are deemed generally safe, yet they continue to generate controversy. While some studies show that these engineered foods are as safe as traditionally grown foods, other studies show deleterious effects in animals.

In a meta-analysis, most of the studies showing. Genetically modified foods (GM foods), also known as genetically engineered foods (GE foods), or bioengineered foods are foods produced from organisms that have had changes introduced into their DNA using the methods of genetic c engineering techniques allow for the introduction of new traits as well as greater control over traits when compared to previous methods, such as.
