Philippines Supreme Court ban on GMOs a “major setback” for the GM industry

The Supreme Court of the Philippines has ordered a permanent ban on field trials of GM eggplant and a temporary halt on approving applications for the “contained use, import, commercialisation and propagation” of GM crops, including the import of GM products. The court ruled in favour of Greenpeace Southeast Asia and fellow campaigners in a major victory for Filipino farmers and activists. Virginia Benosa-Llorin, Ecological Agriculture Campaigner for Greenpeace Philippines, called the ruling “a major setback for the GE industry”. It will affect GM golden rice, which is currently back at the R&D stage after proving a disappointment in field trials.

Scientists challenge EFSA claim of glyphosate safety

In November, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concluded that glyphosate is “unlikely to pose a carcinogenic hazard to humans”.

The EFSA decision, based on the Renewal Assessment Report provided by the German federal risk assessment institute BfR, ran counter to the finding earlier this year by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the cancer arm of the World Health Organization, that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. The IARC review linked glyphosate to dose-related increases in malignant tumours at multiple anatomical sites in experimental animals and to an increased incidence of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in exposed humans.
