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:


“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.

France: we are ONE MILLION demanding an end to synthetic pesticides!!



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!

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.”

France bans dozens of glyphosate weedkillers

Source: France24.com. Issued on: 09/12/2019 – 20:22 Modified: 09/12/2019 – 20:22

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.

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.

Jeffrey Smith Webinar: How Glyphosate Causes Cancer

From: BrocElite Webinar Highlights:
4:00 – What is sulforaphane?
8:00 – What are gap junctions?
18:00 – How glyphosate reduces gap junction function
22:30 – How sulforaphane improves gap junction function
32:30 – What is the Nrf-2 pathway?
41:40 – How glyphosate negatively impacts Nrf-2 and how sulforaphane improves

In this revealing interview by Jeffrey Smith with Dr. John Gildea, and Dr. Martin Katz, you will discover their breaking research on how glyphosate wreaks havoc in our bodies by disrupting the communication network between cells and how sulforaphane – the good chemical from broccoli – prevents this. “

Parliament opposes plans to authorise four herbicide-resistant GMOs

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
