Foods derived from modern Biotechnology are

As safe as foods derived from mutational breeding
As safe as foods derived from chemical based agriculture
As safe as foods derived from conventional plant breeding methods shuch as:Heterosis breeding, back crossing, etc
Safer than foods derived from other techniques, because of reduced requirements for harmful chemicals and pre-marketing safety evaluation
