Articles

This article on the Beyond GM site (26th February 2016) looks at the promises of gene-editing, and whether it’s really needed in agriculture.

 

This GMWatch (20th January 2016) article explains what is considered a GMO in response to articles suggesting we don’t know what a GMO is!

 

This article in The Ecologist (13th January 2016) explains that gene-edited organisms clearly fall within the definition of GMOs in both European and international law. They also present real risks to the environment and human health – and must be regulated like any other GMOs.
