Quotes

It adds, "The government-funded research is worldwide in scope – concentrated in Europe and Asia, followed by North America and Australia. These findings should turn the heads of people who thought it was skewed to private, U S -based laboratories."
"Supermarkets should act now to secure GM-free-fed meat, milk, and eggs for all their customers," said Dr Helen Wallace, Director of GeneWatch UK. "They must help to save the Monarch butterfly and protect other wildlife habitats from being destroyed by blanket spraying with RoundUp."
"We're still reviewing the contents of the court order. Unfortunately, the judge's ruling appears to ignore the rights of counties in favor of global pesticide and genetically engineered seed corporations. By denying Kauai's law, the judge is undermining efforts to create more transparency and stronger protections for farmers, workers and families from hazardous pesticides. The ruling is also a direct challenge to the county’s right to take action to protect the health of families and children in the community. PAN will work with our lawyers to explore all available options to defend the County of Kauai, and all opportunities to support a fair and green food system in Hawaii."
"In every trial we've demonstrated excellent control of the dengue mosquito in an urban setting" says Hadyn Parry of Oxitec. For now they are only measuring success in terms of mosquito numbers
