GMOs have been shown to make other species sick, but there have been no
feeding trials done on human beings. Americans are the guinea pigs in
this trial, and the results aren't in yet, but there are lots of
worrisome thing that we already know. GMOs come with an ubiquitous
antibiotic marker, with will lead to bacterial resistance to it. Enabler
genes from the cauliflower mosaic virus, may turn on segments of DNA
that are now, dormant, and a host protein assembler (a spliceosome) will
mistake exoRNA and produce an unique protein, perhaps an allergen.
I'm not aware of any plant diseases transmitted by GMOs. There biggest
risk is the uncertainty inherent in them. GMOs also do seem to produce
better than natural (organic) plants, except for dent corn, which has be
bred to thrive on NH3, and has permitted the human population to expand
to 7 billion people.
