El Dr. Andrew Stephenson de la Penn State University, Estados Unidos, ha demostrado que la liberación de calabaza transgénica da pie a la acumulación de los transgenes en poblaciones silvestres causando desequilibrios en la progresión de plagas. Por ejemplo, aunque las calabazas transgenicas son mas resistentes al ataque por virus se vuelven mas susceptibles al ataque masivo de bacterias transmitidas por escarabajos.
Purpose: We reviewed 19 studies of mammals fed with commercialized genetically modified soybean and maize which represent, per trait and plant, more than 80% of all environmental genetically modified organisms (GMOs) cultivated on a large scale, after they were modified to tolerate or produce a pesticide. We have also obtained the raw data of 90-day-long rat tests following court actions or official requests. The data obtained include biochemical blood and urine parameters of mammals eating GMOs with numerous organ weights and histopathology findings.
The Plurinational State of Bolivia recognizes the multiple and intertwined ecological and socioeconomic interactions that occur along the life cycle of living modified organisms (LMOs). This is the particular case of agricultural crops and, more recently, genetically modified mosquitoes in terms of their potential adverse effects on biological diversity andlong-term social welfare.
On the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Directive 2001/18/EC as regards the possibility for the Member States to restrict or prohibit the cultivation of GMOs in their territory (COM(2010)0375-C7-0178/2010-2010/0208(COD))
