Fact sheet on genetically engineered mosquitoes in Spanish
The EPA has approved the use of nearly 2 million genetically engineered mosquitoes in California, which will pose a risk to our health and the environment. You can help stop this by telling decisionmakers in California that our communities aren't for genetically engineered mosquito experiments.
California is poised to be the second state where genetically engineered (GE) mosquitoes are released, unless the public and California’s government officials demand otherwise. Earlier this year, half a billion GE mosquitoes were released in Florida.
Se planea que California será el segundo estado de Estados Unidos donde se liberarán los mosquitos transgénicos, a menos de que el público y los funcionarios del gobierno de California exijan lo contrario.
Oxitec has genetically engineered the Aedes aegypti mosquito, known to transmit tropical diseases like dengue fever, zika, and chikungunya.
Oxitec, una empresa de biotecnología, está cabildeando a niveles estatales y locales a Florida (FL) y Texas (TX) para que aprueben la liberación de al menos 500 millones de sus mosquitos transgénicos a estas comunidades.
This report, provides a scientific overview of the concerns with genetically engineered food animal experiments that are underway, and reveals the risks to human health, the environment and animal welfare.
The unexpected and unintended effects of all genetically engineered organisms, regardless of whether ‘traditional’ or gene-edited genetic engineering techniques have been used, have the potential to cause environmental and human health problems.
Whether made from genetically engineered yeast or through in vitro processes, these next-generation animal replacement products are manufactured in resource-intensive factories. The products are often made with multiple processed ingredients, including gums, flavors, colors and other additives. Some products also include novel, genetically engineered ingredients like the “heme” secreted from genetically engineered yeast, which gives the Impossible Burger its “blood.”
