Last ditch stand may just work!

take5 and vote:

  1. NZ’s key export markets do not want GE food. Releasing GE doesn’t make economic sense.
  2. NZ enjoys a clean green image globally. Releasing GE will irreversibly damage this.
  3. Extending the GE moratorium by 5 years will not stop NZ scientists developing medicines to improve human health.
  4. No long-term health studies have been completed on humans eating GE food. How can we ‘proceed with caution’ when the scientists don’t even know what’s going on?
  5. It appears altered genes can transfer from GE plants to weeds. NZ’s economy relies heavily on agriculture. The last thing we need are super weeds.
