Imports of GM soybean/maize/rapeseed
For any nation to assure reliable "food safety" for any and all GM edible plants, or plant components, which is processed into animal feed, food oil or food ingrediants, the completion of independent toxicology tests is essential for:
a) Minimum two years long-term feeding chronic toxicology test
b) Minimum two years long-term carcinogenic tests
c) Multiple generation teratogenic test
d) Minimum three generation reproduction toxicology test
To date, no independent complete set of such tests have been carried out on any GM plants. And, "food safety" toxicology tests carried out by Monsanto or other biotechnology companies have not been disclosed for independent evaluation.
Furthermore, it has already been documented that some "food safety" toxicology tests carried out by biotechnology companies were falsified tests carried out on "false" samples.
We therefore request that, for all GM crops already granted a "safety certificate" issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of China, all of the "food safety" toxicology test reports submitted by the biotechnology companies when they applied for the "safety certificate" should be disclosed.
We further request that the Chinese government organize independent toxicology tests on all GM crops that have already received the "safety certificate" issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of China. Such toxicology tests should include the four types of above mentioned toxicology tests.
Before the above-mentioned action is carried out on any GM crops that have already received the "safety certificate" issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of China, the Chinese government should issue a moratorium on the imports, processing, sales and consumption of such GM crops until the four types of independent toxicology tests are completed.
