With the rise of bioengineered foods and ingredients on the market, doctors are warning consumers about the “hidden harms” that may be lurking in the foods they purchase.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines bioengineered food as a consumable product that “contains detectable genetic material that has been modified through certain lab techniques that cannot be created through conventional breeding or found in nature.”

On Jan. 1, 2022, the USDA implemented a new disclosure standard for bioengineered food, so manufacturers must now label food products with the terms “bioengineered” or “derived from bioengineering” so consumers will know what they are buying.

Informing the public is a good start. However, because these bioengineered foods have not been adequately tested, Dr. Syed Haider has many concerns.
