GM constructs are designed to jump into genomes. Unfortunately, they can also jump out again, to invade other genomes. GM lines are well-known to be unstable, partly because the integrated GM construct can be lost (4), and the viral promoter makes it worse.

Experiments have shown that GM genes can transfer from plants to soil fungi and bacteria.
Foreign genes are introduced to the human body via GMOs, which our bodies do not recognize and attack as foreign invaders.

These same foreign invaders were designed to transfer between genomes, so the ones that survive do what they were designed to do and incorporate into the human genome.

What we now have is a recipe for an increase in mutations via horizontal gene transfer the likes of which no one has ever seen due to spontaneous changes by genetically engineered DNA combined with transposons inherent in almost all species.

Considering the range of genes that might jump...Yes this is an absolute nightmare. aaah2.gif
