GMO: 3 billion people could die!

21.03.2013


GMO is harmful or not? If GM is still bad, is it worth it to ban? Do I need to give up and do nothing, if the GMO is to do nothing, because they are seriously invaded our lives?

Elena Sharojkin, director of the National Association for Genetic Security:

Hello all, on the radio "BIO Intelligence." This is a show Russian environmentalists, the National Association for Genetic Safety on the channel RUSSIA.RU. We try to find out in the series — is harmful GMOs or not. If GM still bad, is it worth it to ban or if GMOs are not harmful or, shall we say, there's nothing to do — give up and accept it.

To answer this question, in the exploration of this issue, we now come to the training team "Artist" Football Club "The Artist", which brings together well-known artists, and which brings together well-known players, the ones who are now no longer play the so-called veterans, but These veterans of the legends of our sport.

Elena:

— Jen, as I understand it, you've heard of genetically modified organisms.

Eugene:

— Yeah, I heard something, but that's so specific, or something close, I am for this problem, in general, did not attend. Not tested by experiment without going through a clinical trial, I do not think that the same corn that is approved by us or somewhere else, can get to the counter, but if it has already gone on sale, and now, perhaps, it is necessary to take the people who eat it. There's my name, we lose. And check them out.

Elena:

— That is, you are willing to believe science, government, You're the one who believes that there is common sense, and it can not lead to that. Do you believe in common sense?

Eugene:

— Definitely.

Victor Saltykov, singer:

— I certainly have a negative attitude to this, but judging by the fact that civilization is not in place, we are on can not possibly refuse. How, then, we can not abandon nuclear energy. Anywhere we shall not get this from, and how could we not fought in some convulsions and passions. Deny it all. Control over this needs to be strengthened, but, unfortunately, those dealers that are totally not think about it, they do it all. Not the ones who invented those who invented them several times whether, you know, as well as medication. Where did all cancers? Where so many of the strange diseases that come from? They were brought from outer space? I believe that these diseases are on that mankind has not yet got used to it.

Elena:

-And if you now have the opportunity to reach out to those most "smart dealers" who do these things, as you said, that you just said it?

Victor Saltykov, singer:

— Have a conscience, comrades, you do try it for yourself, get sick, guys.

Eugene Kemerovo, singer, poet, composer:

— Soon we will have nine billion, I understand that the whole planet, we can not afford to feed and need to come up with some new foods.

Elena:

— Yes. She came up with.

Eugene Kemerovo:

— Its scientists have come up, they can come up with, they came up with atomic bombs, nuclear. So, too, can come up with the food, but the fact is that if it is necessary to mankind, then let it be. I would say very simply.

Elena:

— But humanity can never determine what it needs or not, only time will show.

Eugene Kemerovo:

— But if three of the nine billion die, it is necessary for us. This is a joke.

Elena:

— You know, I want to tell you, it would be a joke if a number of people around the world believe that there is a worldwide conspiracy of one billion, relatively speaking, the theory of one billion, about that …

Eugene Kemerovo:

— Who is this a billion, where he lives, let me know.

Elena:

— He's all over the world, but that the richest people who are not interested in the fact that humanity, well, multiply, if we're talking about the biological species, and they can themselves provide quality, good food.

Eugene Kemerovo:

— I do not understand the meaning of your program — Are you for or against this product?

Elena:

— Well, you said that? Would you like to have not fully researched products?

Eugene Kemerovo:

— Of course not. Who would want to eat it? You'll use makeup, you know? I'm interested to know.

Elena:

— I do not.

Eugene Kemerovo:

— And will be wearing clothes that are, for example, that's totally not you know? Suddenly it out there, you will irritation, or something else?

Our guest today — is a famous scientist from France Dr. Kuntz, today he came to give a lecture, a public lecture, and I want to talk to him because he is not as common in Russia come-known European genetics, who can talk about European thoughts regarding GMOs.

Marcel Kuntz, director of the Laboratory of Cellular Physiology plant of the National Center's research, France:

— I believe that the question of the benefits or harm of GMOs is so extensive that it is more a political than usual. Generally in this area is very big role is played just politics. After all, science does not deal in that it gives specific answers, she searches for answers, exploring and trying to find the truth, but it is not a carrier of absolute truth. Therefore, it is not the role of science. In principle, the debate on this topic has been going on for 15 years and some of the findings have already been made, of course, the most difficult thing is to answer the question — what is the long-term effects of GMO products on the person, on the people, on consumers. At present, a lot of foods with genetically modified ingredients used and used, but, of course, the long-term effects are still not very clear.

Elena:

— Do you think that GMOs have not investigated to its release into the open commercial sale?

Marcel Kuntz:

— In Europe, the issue is treated with great caution, and in Europe there were some critical situations, though not directly related to GM products, but, nevertheless, some people are wary. In the U.S. population believes that this issue is well understood, and they are much less worried about it. Here, of course, it is necessary to study each individual case, to examine a single product. I hope that in the Russian debate on the subject will be less severe and less polarized than in Europe, because the case has already reached such questions that genetically modified foods are irrelevant.

Elena:

— This is where I let disagree, I hope that Russia will debate at least as stringent. You were right — it's political issues. I believe that society has the right to choose — whether it wants that it experienced a new technology or not.

Marcel Kuntz:

— I am very pleased that you have agreed that it is more a political issue, and I wish you much success in the course of discussions on this topic in Russia.

Elena:

— I can sum up our conversation — all States, all countries need to allocate more money for science to science to find answers to the questions that society needs today.

Eugene Kemerovo, singer, poet, composer:

— Can be made easier — take over the North Pole, to build a good gallery, a greenhouse and grow tomatoes there. That it makes it difficult for people to do, please tell me — laziness, stupidity and theft.
