Abstract

“New challenges arise in risk assessment when genetically engineered (GE) plants can persist and propagate in the environment as well as produce viable offspring. Next generation effects can be influenced by heterogeneous genetic backgrounds and unexpected effects can be triggered in interaction with environmental conditions. Consequently, the biological characteristics of the original events cannot be regarded as sufficient to conclude on hazards that may emerge in following generations. Potential hazards identified by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) include exacerbating weed problems, displacement and even extinction of native plant species.”

Soybean SYHT0H2

EFSA Scientific Opinion on the Assessment of genetically modified soybean SYHT0H2, for food and feed uses, under Regulation (EC) No 1829/2003

General description of the product
(a) Name of the recipient or parental plant and the intended function of the genetic modification
SYHT0H2 soybean is a genetically modified soybean that is produced by Agrobacterium tumefaciens–mediated transformation. Where cultivated, the intended function of the genetic modification of SYHT0H2 soybean is to facilitate the control of weeds by providing tolerance to HPPD-inhibiting herbicides, such as mesotrione, and to herbicides containing glufosinate ammonium.

From Wikipedia

4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD) inhibitors (HPPD inhbitors) are a class of herbicides that prevent plants by blocking 4-Hydroxyphenylpyruvate dioxygenase, an enzyme in plants that breaks down the amino acid tyrosine into molecules that are then used by plants to create other molecules that plants need.

There is a pharmaceutical drug on the market, nitisinone, that was originally under development as an herbicide as a member of this class, and is used to treat an orphan disease, type I tyrosinemia.

Philanthrocapitalism: The Gates Foundation’s African programmes are not charity

Quote:” By and large, the Foundation’s grants do not support locally defined priorities, do not fit within the holistic approach urged by many development experts, and do not investigate the long-term effectiveness and risks of genetic modification. ” (2017).

Over wat is gentech? Bezorgd over technologie

Bezorgd over technologie Jan Storms, Storms WATP, verwoordt de bedenkingen bij de technologie: ,,Als je een gen uit een organisme haalt en dat gen in het genoom van een ander organisme sluist, dan staat dat niet gelijk aan het overbrengen van een welomlijnde eigenschap van organisme A naar organisme B. Genen functioneren niet in afzondering, maar in samenhang met de totale genetisch achtergrond en met alle andere niveaus van biologische organisatie. Je hebt dus een gen losgehaald uit het oorspronkelijke oneindig ingewikkelde netwerk en geplaatst in een nieuw netwerk. Hierdoor krijgt het gen een andere betekenis en verandert het hele netwerk.

Parliament opposes plans to authorise four herbicide-resistant GMOs

14-11-19: “Parliament today opposed the Commission’s plans to authorise the import of products containing four glyphosate and glufosinate ammonium resistant GMOs.Source (Pdf) and here (website) ENVI

Envi committee chair of European Parliament: We’ve just rejected new GMOs by a large majority. The European Commission must include in the #greendeal a change to its practices and stop authorising GMOs despite the lack of a majority in the Council (of Ministers) & the Parliament.” Tweet GmWatch

New global threat from GMOs

@GMWatch: “There’s an enormous new threat you probably don’t know much about. Not climate chaos, dying oceans, depleted soils, or widespread chemical pollution. If we magically reverse all of these problems, we may still lose the natural world we cherish.gmwatch.org/en/news/latest-news/19219…#gmo

Weer een nieuwe aanvraag van een gentech voedingsmiddel (soja) van Monsanto die op de EU markt gebracht zal worden als voedsel en voer maar niet voor teelt. (Ze zijn de laatste tijd wel bezig!) Waarbij de burger zijn/haar mening mag geven.
