Genetic Engineering

No industry is self-policing. Therefore we need a long term view of watching the effects of gene manipulation. I am celiac with no prior family history of the disease. When a wheat seed goes from having 8 genes to 40 genes and some of genes are specifically for anti pest control, I believe that the gene manipulation and celiac are connected. Are there long term studies on the affects of these genetic modifications before they enter the food supply for public consumption?
