Yet more problems with CRISPR – with consequences for food safety

2-22-2020 GMWatch: “Adding to the list of problems that can occur with CRISPR, a new study shows that when the CRISPR/Cas system was used in a gene editing procedure aimed at inserting genetic material in mice, a high frequency was found of insertions of multiple copies of the DNA molecules used as…” More

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

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.”

Wi-Fi een belangrijke bedreiging voor menselijk leven

Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health☆ Martin L. Pall

Quote: “Published in the journal Environmental Research, the peer-reviewed paper explains that exposure to WiFi signals, which are everywhere these days, can lead to: oxidative stress, sperm and testicular damage, neuropsychiatric effects including EEG (electroencephalogram) changes, apoptosis (programmed cell death), cellular DNA damage, endocrine changes, and calcium overload.Source: Newstarget.com.

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.
