Genetically engineered soybeans: EFSA withholding crucial documents

Testbiotech is concerned about risk assessment being ‘doctored’
Tuesday, 12 December 2017

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is withholding access to data from feeding trials with genetically engineered soybeans. Testbiotech is concerned that the real health risks from consumption of these soybeans are being concealed. The plants produced by Bayer and Dow AgroSciences each have resistance to three different herbicides, including glyphosate. In analysing documents, Testbiotech became aware of inconsistencies in regard to the feeding trials performed by the US company Dow and, therefore, requested access to the relevant data several weeks ago.

Gates Foundation lobby campaign for the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes carrying a gene drive

Documents show how an international UN conference is being targeted
Monday, 4 December 2017

As documents published today show, an international campaign is underway behind the scenes to pave the way for the release of genetically engineered insects and mammals, carrying a so-called gene drive. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is particularly active in this regard. The foundation has, amongst other things, hired a specialised consulting agency (Emerging Ag) specifically to influence public opinion and future regulatory systems.
