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.

Tweets met Jumbo over gentech anjers

Jumbo had op hun internetpagina een recept met eetbare anjers, die erg veel lijken op gentech anjers. Na een Tweetswisseling kregen we niet duidelijk te horen of het ook gentech anjers waren. We wachten af en nemen dit mee tijdens de hoorzitting bij het ministerie van I en W in januari om duidelijk te maken dat anjers wel degelijk steeds meer gegeten worden. (Nog een recept met venkel een paarse anjer, beneden aan.)

Serious! New Oral Polio Vaccine to Bypass Key Clinical Trials Health officials are rushing a genetically engineered product into the field to counter uncontained outbreaks of vaccine-derived polio.

Dec 17, 2019 Robert Fortner, The Scientist.

Quote:” The new vaccine, called nOPV2, might conclusively end the outbreaks, caused by the live virus in the vaccine reverting to a virulent form. But expedited approval means skipping the real-world testing of large clinical trials.Instead, key questions about the vaccine’s effectiveness will be answered in the field.

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).

Burger King In Crisis As Vegan ‘Impossible Burger’ Found To Contain 44mg of ESTROGEN

December 24, 2019. News Punch. Baxter Dmitry News, US 11

Hamburger, Miep Bos , 2019.

Quote: “That’s a whopping 18 million times more estrogen than a standard Whopper.

According to Dr. James Strangle, the ‘Impossible Burger’ is a genetically modified organism filled with calorie-dense oils that will make men grow breasts if eaten in sufficient quantity.”

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.
