Maine rep says new GMO labels aren’t consumer friendly
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine's Democratic congresswoman is pushing back against the federal government's plan to place labels on foods that were produced with genetic engineering.
Rep. Chellie Pingree, an organic farmer who has been in office since 2009, has often focused on food issues during her time in Congress. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's new standard for labeling genetic engineered food, she said, is "an insult to consumers."
Food is one of the fundamental needs from birth. Less than two centuries ago, production of food in the beautiful islands of Hawaii only consisted of hunting, harvesting and farming. Usually it would take a long time before these foods arrived at the dining tables of families.
HONOLULU — U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and other lawmakers are hoping to ensure genetically modified ingredient labeling standards are fair and transparent.
“Nine out of 10 Americans consistently report they want the right to know if their food is produced with genetic engineering, the same right held by consumers in 64 other countries,” Gabbard wrote in a letter about the labeling standards sent to Sonny Perdue, secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
HOUSTON (AP) — Officials are considering releasing genetically modified mosquitoes in Houston as part of the fight against the insects known to carry diseases such as the Zika virus.
The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/2mLrfyy ) reports that Harris County, Texas, officials are negotiating with a British biotech company, Oxitec, to release mosquitoes that have been genetically engineered to produce offspring that die.
Tacoma resident chosen as a 2017 Rhodes Scholar
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A 23-year-old from Tacoma who plans to combine his knowledge of genetics and philosophy to help guide tough ethical decisions as advancing technologies make designing humans possible was selected as a Rhodes Scholar on Sunday.
Anthony W. L. "Wilder" Wohns says the pitfalls of human genetic engineering are many and varied and his studies at Oxford University will prepare him for that future.
A new report from UC San Diego and the J. Craig Venter Institute outlines a possible path forward to getting the benefit of recent powerful advances in genetic engineering, while minimizing potential harms.
Scientists traditionally relied on the slow and inefficient process of breeding to introduce modified genes into a population. But in recent years, scientists have designed genes that drive themselves into breeding populations in the lab, and potentially in nature. It's...
