Why Is There So Little Independent Peer Reviewed GMO Research?

THE CORNUCOPIA INSTITUTE The Chronicle of Higher Education By Goldie Blumenstyk 

-▶  In a case before the U.S. Supreme Court this month, advocates for academic researchers are urging the justices to reverse a patent-infringement decision that has given the Monsanto Company broad authority to restrict scientists’ study of genetically modified seeds. The decision, the advocates say, not only hurts farmers and fuels higher food prices; it also contributes to “the suffocation of independent scientific inquiry into transgenic crops.”.. http://www.cornucopia.org/2013/02/in-standing-up-for-big-ag-are-universities-undercutting-their-own-researchers/

 -- Companies that genetically engineer crops have a lock on what we know about their safety and benefits. Multibillion-dollar agricultural corporations, including Monsanto and Syngenta, have restricted independent research on their genetically engineered crops. They have often refused to provide independent scientists with seeds, or they've set restrictive conditions that severely limit research options.... http://articles.latimes.com/2011/feb/13/opinion/la-oe-guriansherman-seeds-20110213

-▶  SERALINI GMO PEER REVIEWED SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE IS CRUSHED BY INDUSTRY

Journal retraction of Séralini study is illicit, unscientific, and unethical.
Hayes’ decision to retract the paper follows FCT’s appointment of Richard E. Goodman, a former Monsanto scientist and an affiliate of the GMO industry-funded group, the International Life Sciences Institute, to the specially created post of associate editor for biotechnology at the journal, early this year.[10]
Goodman’s appointment in turn followed an orchestrated campaign by GMO supporters to persuade FCT to retract the study. Some critics even accused Prof Séralini of fraud, without presenting any evidence. Many of the critics had undeclared conflicts of interest with the GMO industry.

Steve Kingsley's curator insight, November 28, 2013 7:50 PM

If it is true that when deciding whether to allow a genetically engineered crop onto the market, the Department of Agriculture and other regulatory agencies do not perform their own experiments on the performance and safety of the crop, then we should make it their business, starting now!

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, November 30, 2013 7:50 PM

Now that's an easy one to answer. The companies creating GMOs are too busy patting themselves on the back and rewarding themselves for the inventions. They don't have the ethics required to take a real, hard and serious look at themselves to see the danger and disastrous consequences of what they are creating.

It was a big year for Big Food. More fast food chains pledged to stop using gestation crates. Country of origin rules -- mandating that meat suppliers label where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered -- took effect. A major food corporation and a fast food chain announced they would stop using artificial dye in some of their products.

Healthy food; healthy life | Iwacu English News

Inspired by the importance of edible mushrooms to individual health and good results from their production, a mushrooms’ Company SOCHA (Société des Champignons), located at Ngagara Commune near OTRACO Company, deals with cultivating, producing and promoting them.

 

According to Emile Nsengiyumva, the Chairman of SOCHA, ediblemushrooms are not new in Burundi but people don’t know how to cultivate them and the importance they have in human health as well as their economic role in the community.

 

However, this kind of cultivation requires being more careful because if a mushroom famer doesn’t make a close follow -up during the cultivation period the production can fall down very easily.


In fact, the cultivation of mushrooms is ignored by people because they aren’t aware of their utility in our everyday life and some Burundian people have in their mind that mushrooms are a kind of food for indigenous or low class people.


“Edible mushrooms have many proteins, i.e. 15-27% dry matter and vegetable which have a more positive impact on individual health than food containing animal protein that causes some diseases like gout which is characterized by excessive amount of uric acid in the body” declares Nsengiyumva.


He goes on saying that edible mushrooms are poor in sugar and fat. So, people suffering from diabetes and high blood pressure are advised to consume them.


“Edible mushrooms are also rich in vitamins C, and B, as well as in lipid and mineral,” states Nsengiyumva.   


He highlights that in environmental domain, edible mushrooms don’t have any negative impact. “They are cultivated on shelves. Then, if you plant them they won’t cause erosion or destroy other kinds of cultivation plants,” points out Nsengiyumva.


He adds that for other plants, after people have harvested they burn the rest, this may damage or spoil the ozone layer(protecting the air) but for the edible mushrooms we use the rest for cultivation substrate and what we get from the harvest we give it to other farmers for their compost.
