According to the UK researchers, modifying the soybean genes not only caused the number of original allergens but also generated more unusual allergens, (Smith, 2014). Apart from allergies, GMO may affect in the long run because of the safety of new unknown genes. In article of Mesnage et al, It is said that researchers at the University of Caen (France) have recently announced their findings about the risks that B.t toxins pose to human cells, though the Bt protein was assumed to cause no harm to human cells for such a long time. These results of the experiments have urged scientists to assess the danger of
