Looks on the surface like a good article (lots of references, well written), but it's a summary of what's not known. I can see nothing in the article that says that there is a known or proven issue for human/animal health - but lots of potential or might bes that need further research.

I'm astounded that the EFSA didn't require the companies wishing to sell GMOs in Europe to make full disclosure about what had been inserted where - why did it take research to discover this? I suspect that the risks to human & plant health are probably very small, but the fact that the regulators themselves are not in the know is a scandal.

Biochemistry is a young science: a great deal is understood, but it is pretty clear that a great deal more than this remains to be discovered. Mucking around with stuff that not properly understood is usually a recipe for disaster.
