Toxicity or allergenicity to humans: could the GM cotton be more toxic or allergenic than non-GM cotton, as a result of the novel gene products or because of unintended effects?

  • Toxicity to non-target organisms: could the GM cotton be harmful to non-target organisms as a result of the novel gene products or because of unintended effects?

  • Weediness: could the GM cotton be harmful to the environment because of inherent weediness or increased potential for weediness?

  • Gene transfer: could the new genes introduced into the cottons transfer to non-GM cotton crops, feral or native cottons, or to other organisms, with adverse consequences?

  • Insecticide resistance: could target insects develop resistance to the insecticidal protein produced by the introduced insecticidal gene in the GM cotton?
