Let's get to work
It's time to #BeeBold and take action in our own backyards and beyond.
In the case, Myriad Genetics is filing for a patent on two genes associated with increased risk for cancer. The groups signed on to the amicus brief want the court to rule that human genes cannot be patented.
Letter urging the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to fully assess the impacts of genetically engineered Atlantic salmon before acting on AquaBounty Technologies’ application for the first ever approval of a GE animal for human consumption.
Labeling of AquAdvantage genetically engineered salmon.
This groundbreaking report rigorously examines claims that nanotechnology will allow for continued economic growth and resource use while minimizing environmental impacts, showing that to date nanotechnology has failed to make good on these promises.
This report highlights our concerns with using synthetic biology to develop next-generation fuels. Synthetic biology is a dangerous, untested, unregulated technology that threatens the environment and public health.
Offering testimony from civil society on the environmental and societal implications of synthetic biology
Nanomaterials are already being used (unlabelled) in hundreds of consumer products including sunscreens and cosmetics. This report explains why this is reason for concern.
Hundreds of consumer products incorporating nanomaterials are on the market. Many of these contain nano-silver. This report highlights the potential environmental and human health risks.
This report finds that untested nanotechnology is being used in more than 100 food products, food packaging and contact materials currently on the shelf, without warning or FDA testing.
Many sunscreen manufacturers are now including potentially dangerous manufactured nanoparticles in their sun care products. This underscores the need for labeling requirements and regulation.
