Escape of genetically engineered organisms and unintentional transboundary movements: Overview of recent and upcoming cases and the new risks from SynBio organisms

This report gives an overview of cases of uncontrolled spread and/or gene flow from genetically engineered organisms that can enable them to become established, persist and propagate in the environment, independently of their intended usage. […]

Inadequate Scientific Evidence to Declare GM Herbicide Tolerant Crops Safe or Sustainable

A sustainability assessment of GM herbicide tolerant crops has found scientific evidence lacking to rule them safe or sustainable. It points to empirical evidence showing possible adverse effects and to incomplete information and research on GM crops. […]

Study Links Widely Used Pesticides to Antibiotic Resistance

News articles on the issue of antibiotic resistance and the links to commercial formulations of the herbicides glyphosate, 2,4-D and dicamba. […]

Exposure to Herbicides can Cause Change in Bacterial Response to Antibiotics

This study demonstrates that sub-lethal exposure to the herbicides dicamba, 2,4-D and glyphosate can cause bacteria to change their response to antibiotics. […]

No Scientific Consensus on GMO Safety

A broad community of independent scientific researchers and scholars challenges recent claims of a consensus over the safety of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). […]

Scientific Analysis Debunks GM Industry Myths

A scientific analysis examines and debunks widely-held myths about GMOs, questioning their safety and concluding that they are not necessary to feed the world. […]

Research Shows Molecular Differences Between GM and Conventional Maize

A paper published in the journal Proteome Science field, has shown molecular differences between genetically modified MON810 maize hybrids and their non-GM counterparts. […]
