DENR push for GMOs raises serious concern - SEARCA Biotechnology Information Center [cached]
According to a recent report ("DENR exec pushes for genetically modified organisms in food production," Inquirer, 7/20/11), Marcial Amaro Jr., national director of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources' Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau (DENR-ERDB) said that "Biotechnology, including genetically modified organisms, could help ensure food security for the country.
BT eggplant and Golden Rice are being developed for human consumption but the "adequate safety measures" Amaro mentioned do not include tests to see if GM crops are safe for humans to eat? India rejected BT eggplant because the government was not convinced of its safety?
Amaro talked about food security. Can he explain now to local farmers that they will now have to buy patented seeds from foreign multinationals every time they plant? Will this advance our country's food security if we have to perpetually rely on foreign multinationals for our seeds?
Now that the Organic Agriculture Act has been passed, Amaro should support organic agriculture. Organic crops cannot coexist with GMOs which contaminate it with GM pollen. Besides, GM crops use large quantities of poisonous chemical pesticides and herbicides adding to the chemical pollution of our soils.
Director Amaro says that biosafety measures are strictly followed, but field testing of BT eggplant was done in total disregard of the required protocol stated in the Department of Agriculture's Administrative Order No. 8 (DAO 8).

Marcial Amaro Jr., ERDB director, said that the effort of the bureau is to find answers to questions on whether the advancements of science are in harmony with biodiversity.
"There are a lot of unknowns, specifically on the production of GMO that we are looking into and try to understand them on whether they conform to the parameters of biosafety," Amaro said.
