A link to this video was contained in a joint press release (see below), between IRT and the German-based Coordination against BAYER-Dangers (CBG). On Thursday, April 23rd, our release went to about 700 European news outlets.

On Sunday, April 26th, CBD hosted Jeffrey at their online press event, which also featured a member of the European Parliament. Click here to view Jeffrey’s presentation.

Jeffrey also presented at the day-long online protest event that occurred in parallel with Bayer’s annual meeting on Tuesday.

He submitted two questions, with significant explanation, to be read during the shareholder meeting. Although Bayer claimed they read and answered every question during the meeting, they reduced his two minute explanation to a butchered 5 seconds. Bayer thereby depriving its shareholders and the public from hearing Jeffrey’s dire prediction about the company’s future, and specific remedies needed to help prevent bankruptcy.

What follows is the text of yesterday’s press release provides Jeffrey’s analysis and recommendations.

Risk assessment of genetically engineered plants that can persist and propagate in the environment

Paper Bauer-Panskus, A., Miyazaki, J., Kawall, K. et al. Risk assessment of genetically engineered plants that can persist and propagate in the environment. Environ Sci Eur 32, 32 (2020). https://doi.org/10.1186/s12302-020-00301-0

Fragment abstract:

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.”

New U.S. bioengineering (GMO) label in effect, but confusing for manufacturers and consumers

By vast Published: January 28, 2020. The Non-gmoreport

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.

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.”
