I media hanno reso celebre uno studio sugli organismi geneticamente modificati (ogm) compiuto da quattro ricercatori di Pisa, pubblicato su "Scientific Reports" come la definitiva prova a favore delle colture transgeniche. In realtà l'annuncio omette gravemente informazioni, che avrebbero mostrato un quadro tutt'altro che rassicurante. A questo equivoco ha contributo l'università pisana presentando sul suo sito lo studio con il titolo Nessun rischio per la salute umana, animale e ambientale e l'aggiunta "conclusioni univoche". I giornali e la gente non leggono il complesso testo in inglese, giustamente dell'università si fidano e comunicano che è stato provato che gli ogm non sono pericolosi e non danneggiano l'agricoltura.

Resource-intensive agriculture, despite its productivity, nevertheless has failed to feed the world's current population, never mind the nine billion people expected by 2050. This system that currently
China rejects 545,000 tons of imported US corn found to contain an unapproved genetically modified strain.
Genetic modification actually cuts the productivity of crops, an authoritative new study shows, undermining repeated claims that a switch to the controversial technology is needed to solve the growing world food crisis.
The battle to bring GM food to Europe has been fiercely fought for years. Most assumed it would be continue to rage for many more. Which m...

Today, on Twitter, I learned something new and interesting from environmental reporter Paul Voosen. Over the years, I've run into reports (like this one from the Union of Concerned Scientists) showing that genetically modified crops - i.e. Roundup Ready corn and soybeans, which is really the stuff we're talking about most of the time in
Friends of the Earth is excited to announce our new campaign to prevent genetically engineered fish from hitting our dinner plates: the Campaign for Genetically Engineered (GE)-Free Seafood. As we recently reported, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration is in the final stages of approving genetically engineered salmon for human consumption. If approved, it would
