“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.”

Quote: Jan. 1, 2020 marked the effective date for labeling food containing detectable genetically modified material—with full compliance required by Jan. 1, 2022. While some companies like General Mills have already begun voluntary labeling, the Department of Agriculture’s new instructions for compliance are not clear to manufacturers and retailers.
GMO- Labels in de USA op producten met gentech ingrediënten. Pas bij 5% vervuiling, niet in restaurants niet bij zuivel. Bioengineering= gentech.
Quote: “Two important new papers have been published (see abstracts below this article) showing that the GM herbicide-tolerant soybean crops assessed by regulators are not representative of what actually gets grown and put out into the marketplace.“
It’s big, it’s historic: we are ONE MILLION demanding an end to synthetic pesticides!! France is the first country in the world to experience a peaceful revolt against these poisons. And it’s only just begun! Bravo to all and let’s keep going!

C’est grand, c’est historique: nous sommes UN MILLION à exiger la fin des #pesticides de synthèse!! La France est le premier pays au monde à connaître une pacifique révolte contre ces poisons. Et ça ne fait que commencer! Bravo à tous et ne lâchons rien!

” The changes we saw are closest to those seen with chemical gastropathy (also called reactive gastritis), caused by chemical irritants, such as aspirin, damaging the lining of the stomach.” More from GeneWatch.

“France’s health and environment agency said on Monday it was banning dozens of glyphosate-based weedkillers, most of the volume of such products sold in France, ruling there was insufficient data to exclude health risks.”
Vertaling: Frankrijk verbiedt meerdere herbiciden waar glyfosaat in zit.
Maandag zei het Franse gezondheids- en milieu agentschap dat het meerdere herbiciden met glyfosaat verbiedt, het betreft de meeste die in Frankrijk worden verkocht, omdat er te weinig informatie aangeleverd is om gezondheidsrisico´s uit te kunnen sluiten.
