Gene drives could have serious and potentially irreversible impacts on public health and the environment. We need to stop these risky experiments from being rushed out of the lab and into the environment and our communities.
On the heels on the European Court of Justice’s ruling requiring organisms developed using new genetic engineering techniques to undergo GMO risk assessments, and several new studies revealing “genetic havoc” as a result of gene editing, Friends of the Earth and Logos Environmental released a new report today, Gene-edited organisms in agriculture: Risks and unexpected consequences.
All products made with genetic engineering, including ones made with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, should be regulated, assessed for health and environmental impacts, and labeled.
Today, Center for Food Safety (CFS) and dozens of consumer, environmental, and farming organizations and companies submitted comments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on the agency’s long-awaited proposed regulations for the mandatory disclosure of foods produced using genetic engineering (GE or GMO).
This is just the latest of Trump’s attacks on sensible, science-based regulations, once again putting the interests of corporations ahead of the interests of our health and environment.
Over 1,200 emails released under open records requests reveal that the U.S. military is now the top funder and influencer behind a controversial genetic extinction technology known as “gene drives” – pumping $100 million into the field.
People have a right to know where their food comes from and exactly what’s in it, so that they can make informed choices about what they eat.
