Opponents to transgenics worry that proteins produced by transgenes may prove toxic, making foods produced by those crop plants unsafe to eat. Safety evaluations of transgenic crops rely on a concept called substantial equivalence. Substantial equivalence is a detailed comparison of transgenic crop products with their nontransgenic equivalents.

Some may only have poisonous leaves, others may only possess toxic compounds in the roots, and others may be entirely toxic, leaves, shoots, roots, berries and all (nightshade, for example).Many are only toxic to certain organisms, like humans or dogs, and others are only toxic to fish (called ichthyotoxic) or insects, others may only impact other plants to reduce competition, and still.

In addition, toxic substances such as pesticides may be applied to a food crop in the field, while lead, arsenic, and cadmium are naturally present in soil and water, and may be absorbed by plants. Toxicologists must determine the acceptable daily intake level for those substances. plants absorb heavy metals primarily through roots and also through the leaf surfaces.

Those plants that are grown in aquatic systems face greater toxicity as the whole plant body is exposed to toxic ions in this type of plant. Some heavy metals are considered essential elements for plants (Fe, Cu, Mo, and Zn).

Tomato toxicity symptoms are more pronounced in dogs than in people, with a list of side effects that include nervous system issues to digestive ailments. It’s best to err on the side of caution and keep your pets away from your tomato plants. Some individuals may be more sensitive to the alkaloids found in tomatoes and should avoid them.

There are hundreds of plants that can be toxic to livestock. Some grow in specific regions while others are more widespread.

Some are always a serious danger and others only under certain conditions. Poisoning of livestock depends on several factors, including palatability of the plant, stage of development, conditions in which they grew, moisture content of the plant and the part eaten.
