Criticism of Block's column "Organic foods are four to eight times more likely to be recalled for safety concerns than the market average" is off base
...animal health is better since the introduction of GE feeds—healthier udders in dairy cows, for example, which translates into improved milk quality. "The review also examined the composition of products like milk, meat and eggs that are derived from animals fed diets containing GE feeds. “No study has revealed any differences in the nutritional profile of animal products derived from GE-fed animals,” state the authors. In other words, these foods are indistinguishable from foods derived from animals fed a non-GE diet. "Furthermore, recombinant DNA, or transgenic material, from biotech crops has not been detected in animal products including milk, meat and eggs from animals fed GE feed InIn fact, the DNA from GE crops is chemically the same as DNA from traditional sources. Both are completely broken down in the human and animal gastrointestinal tract during digestion.3,4,5"ASAS believes in the consumer’s right to make an educated choice. There are ample opportunities for multiple production systems in the marketplace, including conventional systems that use crops derived from biotechnology, as well as natural and organic production systems. However, that choice should not be clouded by fear-mongering or misinformation related to GE feed crops.”"
"The current objective is to develop a therapeutic superior to both MB-003 and ZMAb, which could be used for outbreak patients, primary health-care providers, as well as high-containment laboratory workers in the future... To extend the antibody half-life in humans and to facilitate clinical acceptance, the individual murine antibodies in ZMAb were first chimaerized with human constant regions (cZMAb; components: c1H3, c2G4 and c4G7). The cZMAb components were then produced in Nicotiana benthamiana , using the large-scale, Current Good Manufacturing Practice-compatible Rapid Antibody Manufacturing Platform (RAMP) and magnICON vectors that currently also manufactures the individual components of cocktail MB-003, before efficacy testing in animals."
