One word answer: zero.
In addition to Bruce Chassy’s response above, you might be interested in the following studies:
- , there are no cause and effect relationships between genetically engineered (GE) food and human health.
- “there is no evidence that unique hazards exist either in the use of FDNA techniques or in the movement of between unrelated organisms. (Report 2 of the council on science and public health (A-12) labeling of bioengineered foods, 2012).”
- “GM foods currently available on the international market have passed safety assessments and are not likely to present risks for human health. In addition, no effects on human health have been shown as a result of the consumption of such foods by the general population in the countries where they have been approved (20 questions on Genetically Modified Foods, 2013).”
We hope this answers your question, if you have any other questions about GMOs or biotechnology, please !
