Geenimuunneltu ruoka GMO

Geenimuuneltu ruoka


Geenimaissi-1507:n viljelyluvasta on kiistelty vuosia. Maissilajike kehittää myrkkyä, jonka on tarkoitus estää tiettyjen tuholaisten, kuten maissikoisan aiheuttamat tuhot. EU sallii tätä geenimaissia sisältävien tuotteiden tuonnin muun muassa Yhdysvalloista ja Kanadasta, sillä sitä saa unionin alueella käyttää ruuassa ja rehussa. Geenimaissi-1507:ää ei sen sijaan saa tällä hetkellä viljellä EU-maissa.

Renowned Expert: GMOs Pose More Risk Than We Think

Source: Nassim Taleb, Quozio

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have the ability to cause "an irreversible termination of life at some scale, which could be the planet."



This warning, as emotional and overstated as it sounds, isn't coming from some anti-science zealot or conspiracy theorist.

It is, instead, coming from Nassim Taleb, distinguished professor of risk engineering at New York University, author of best-sellers The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness, and shrewd investor who made a fortune when "black swans" like September 11 and the Great Recession occurred.

Recently, he's been making his feelings on GMOs crystal clear: they're dangerous to the overall health of our planet. In a paper that's available to the public, yet still in draft form, Taleb -- along with two colleagues -- lay out their case.

The threat
GMOs are historically different from their naturally occurring peers in that their genetic make-up has been altered in a laboratory before being planted in fields.

Often, these types of seeds are favored because of their ability to yield larger harvests and avoid certain pests or weeds that usually eat up some of their productivity.

Taleb's primary concern isn't that ingesting GMOs is necessarily bad for us; he's instead focused on the monumental threat such technology has on our worldwide ecosystem. While Taleb agrees that the relative risk of any one transgenic seed ruining the ecosystem is incredibly small, people are still underestimating the risks involved.

That's because, as humans, we are ill equipped to understand the mathematics behind such risks. Let's say each GM seed that's produced holds a 0.1% chance of -- somehow, in the intricately interdependent web of nature -- leading to a catastrophic breakdown of the ecosystem that we rely on for life. All by itself, it doesn't seem too harmful, but with each new seed that's developed, the risk gets greater and greater.

The chart below demonstrates how, over time, even a 0.1% chance of ecocide can be dangerous.

I cannot stress enough that the probabilities I am using are for illustrative purposes only. Neither I, nor Taleb, claim to know what the chances are of any one type of seed causing such destruction.

The focus, instead, should be on the fact that the "total ecocide barrier" is bound to be hit, over a long enough time, with even incredibly small odds. Taleb includes a similar graph in his work, but no breakdown of the actual variables at play.

New Yorkin yliopiston professori Nassim Taleb sanoo että geenimuunneltu ruoka on vaaraksi koko maapallolle.

Geenimuuntelu tarvitsee materiaalikseen kasvilajikkeita, joiden perimässä on mahdollisimman vähän muuntelua. Perimältään kapeiksi jalostetut viljelykasvit ovat kuitenkin herkkiä ympäristömuutoksille, ja pahimmillaan ruuanjalostuksella leikkiminen voi kostautua sadon menetyksenä. Nykyinen GM-kasvijalostus palvelee käytännössä kemianteollisuuden suuryritysten intressejä.

Kun lajikkeet jalostetaan tarpeeksi monimutkaisen tekniikan avulla, lajikkeista tulee tekijänoikeus-korvausten alaista patentti-tavaraa ja elintarvikealan omavaraisuus lentää roskakoriin. Puhutaan hienosti IP-oikeuksista. Maapallon ruokavarat ovatkin yht’äkkiä yhdysvaltalaisten lakimiesten hallussa!

Health Risks

In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, "Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food," including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system. The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.[1]

Starting in 1996, Americans have been eating genetically modified (GM) ingredients in most processed foods. Why isn't the FDA protecting us?

In 1992, the Food and Drug Administration claimed they had no information showing that GM foods were substantially different from conventionally grown foods. Therefore they are safe to eat, and absolutely no safety studies were required. But internal memos made public by a lawsuit[2] reveal that their position was staged by political appointees who were under orders from the White House to promote GMOs. In addition, the FDA official in charge of creating this policy was Michael Taylor, the former attorney for Monsanto, the largest biotech company, and later their vice president.

GMO Geenimuunneltu ruoka

Yhdysvaltojen etelävaltioiden soijanviljelijät käyvät taistelua ”superrikkakasvi” rassirevonhäntää vastaan. Revonhäntien sukuun kuuluvasta kasvista on tullut kiusa yksipuolisen gm-soijan viljelyssä.

Helsingin Sanomat julkaisi jokin aika sitten artikkelin geenimanipuloidusta ruuantuotannosta otsikolla ’Seitsemän väitettä gemoista’.

Lehden artikkelin yksipuolisuuden vuoksi haluan tuoda tässä esille tärkeitä näkökohtia, joita lehti ei esitellyt.
