Council for Responsible Genetics
Understanding the ethical, legal, social and environmental implications of biotechnology.
The purpose of the Genetic Bill of Rights is to introduce a global dialogue on the fundamental values that have been put at risk by new applications of genetics. A basic set of common principles is essential for creating a framework for understanding the ethical, legal, social and environmental implications of biotechnology.
New genetic technologies pose unprecedented challenges to human integrity, individual liberty and the health of the biosphere. Since the questions that these technologies raise affect all of us, there is a pressing need to ensure the public is brought into the process of regulation and governance.... http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/Projects/CurrentProject.aspx?projectId=5

NOW "MUTAGENESIS" - AS OPPOSITION TO GM CROPS GROWS, COMPANIES ARE TURNING TO "MUTANT" SEED BREEDING
Mutagenesis deletes and rearranges hundreds or thousands of genes randomly, spawning mutations that are less precise than GMOs. ... The process, which faces almost no regulation, creates opportunities for companies to grab a bigger share of the $34 billion global commercial seed market. But some scientists say mutant crops are more likely to pose health risks than genetically modified ones.
All breeding techniques can create plants with increased levels of naturally occurring toxins or with proteins known to cause allergic reactions....Reports from the National Academy of Sciences, representing the consensus of experts in the field, say the risk of creating unintended health effects is greater from mutagenesis than any other technique, including genetic modification. ...
