Patented Unique DNA (proteins) =Allergy Stimuli

Creating plants that withstand poisoning and that can deliver bug killer....something not normally part of the food supply, present as a unique organism (humans have never-before been exposed to them) and likely cause an immune system response or allergic symptoms. They may be small, large or imperceptible but that likelihood of their causing some distress is high. GMOs are engineered for agronomic effects not for human nutrition. An examination of the GMO patents will show that the majority of claims refer to the organisms as "commodity plant product" rather than health supplement.
