Action Items from the Union of Concerned Scientists

Human Genes in Our Food Supply?

In Kansas, Ventria Bioscience wants to plant up over 3,000 acres of genetically engineered (GE) rice that uses human genes to produce lactoferrin, lysozyme, and serum albumin. Ventria plans to market these products for a variety of food and pharmaceutical purposes, including supplements for yogurt, granola bars, meal replacement and performance drinks, and oral rehydration solutions. Pharma crops grown outdoors pose serious risks to humans if they contaminate our food supply.

If human genes in your food supply bother you, take action today.

Meat and Milk from Cloned Animals?

The Food and Drug Administration is poised to allow the sale of meat and milk from cloned animals and their offspring in U.S. stores. The FDA needs to thoroughly review the safety of food products from clones and their offspring before allowing these products on the market.

Click here if you you want, at the very least, to make sure cloned meat and milk are clearly labeled.

Thanks for this information, which is necessary though troubling! I've seen ads for this cloned meat, and the ads are beautiful and vibrant and seductive. They make the whole thing seem so harmless. Thanks for your insights. (And thanks for visiting Writing in Faith)

To me all this is a completely idiotic. Let nature, nature be since the beginning of the world people have eaten from what they could hunt or plant. On top of that it's a crime to spend money for such researches instead of putting it into cancer research !
