As some you may have heard, for more than two years, Dr. Fagan has been working on a very challenging research project–to create the first test to specifically detect a gene-edited GMO, which is a euphemism for a new class of GMOs.
Proponents in the biotech industry maintain that these DNA alterations can not be detected, and therefore can not be traced, or tested or regulated, and should not even be called GMOs. However, they definitely are genetically modified, and carry the same risks as the earlier GMOs, although maybe more so–huge disruption of the genome, unexpected side effects, environmental and health damage, toxic influences, etc.
Other scientists who have been working on the risks of GMOs and on that research front for years have called this work historic. The study was published in the EU on Monday, and in the US on Tuesday, September 6.
Here is a link to a four-minute video overview.
The article below was published in GMWatch, a British GM watchdog site, and provides a well-written overview.
