Text of Dr. Mae-Wan Ho's contribution to the special educational forum organized by Congressman Tony Hall, 29 June, 2000, on Capitol Hill, Washington DC.

Can Biotechnology Help Fight World Hunger?

by Dr. Mae-Wan Ho, Institute of Science in Society and Open University, UK

Special Forum organized by Congressman Tony Hall, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, 29 June 2000

Key Words: GM crops, CaMV promoter, horizontal gene transfer, world hunger, organic revolution in science,

Dr. Mae-Wan Ho:

1. It's a great honor to be invited to speak here. I'm a scientist who loves science and believes science and technology can help build a better world and combat world hunger. But it must be the right kind of science and technology, and it must be decided by people themselves. There is no alternative to the democratic process of seriously informing and empowering people. And I congratulate Congressman Tony Hall for putting on this special forum.

2. I am among the 327 scientists from 38 countries who have signed an Open Letter to all Governments demanding a moratorium on GM crops because we have reasons to believe they are not safe (1). We are also  calling for support of sustainable agricultural methods that are already working successfully around the world. There is genuine disagreement within the scientific community. The public are not served by portraying the debate as science versus anti-science.

3. Let me begin with recent report from Germany that GM genes in GM pollen have transferred to the bacteria and yeasts in the gut of baby bees (2).

4. This kind of horizontal gene transfer involves the direct uptake of foreign genetic material. It has been found to happen also in the field. After GM sugar beet was harvested, the GM genetic material persisted in the soil for at least two years and was taken up by soil bacteria (3).

5. Not only microorganisms, but animal cells, including human cells can readily take up the GM constructs and the foreign genes often end up in the cell's own genetic material, its genome (4).

6. Not so long ago, the pro-biotech scientists were insisting horizontal gene transfer couldn't happen. Now, they are saying it happens all the time, so no need to worry.

7. So the crucial question is whether GM genetic material is like ordinary genetic material. The answer is no. There is a world of difference between GM genetic material and natural genetic material.

8. Natural genetic material in non-GM food is broken down to provide energy and building-blocks for growth and repair. And in the rare event that the foreign genetic material gets into a cell's genome, other mechanisms can still put the foreign genes out of action or eliminate it. These are all part of the biological barrier that keeps species distinct, so gene exchange across species is held in check. And that has been so for billions of years of evolution.

9. GM-constructs are designed to invade genomes and to overcome natural species barriers. Because of their highly mixed origins, GM constructs tend to be unstable as well as invasive, and may therefore be more likely to spread by horizontal gene transfer (5).

10. GM constructs consist of genetic material of dangerous bacteria, viruses and other genetic parasites from widely different origins. They are combined in new ways that have never existed, and put into genomes that they have never been part of. They include antibiotic resistance genes that make bacterial infections very difficult to treat. And, you never just put a gene in by itself. It needs a gene switch or a promoter to work. Typically an aggressive promoter from a virus is used to make the gene over-express continuously - something which never happens in healthy organisms.

11. One viral promoter in practically al GM crops out there, including the so-called second generation GM plants such as the 'golden rice' (6) is from the cauliflower mosaic virus, CaMV for short. This CaMV promoter has a recombination hotspot - a site where it is prone to break and join up with other genetic material (7). It is promiscuous in function (8). Plant genetic engineers thought it works in all plants and plant-like species, but not in animals. Just last week, we discovered in the scientific literature more than 10 years old that this same CaMV promoter works extremely well also in frog eggs (9) and extracts of human cells (10). It is already known to be able to substitute for promoters of other viruses to give infectious viruses.

12. What will happen when these dangerous GM constructs spread? Remember, GM constructs are made from genetic material of viruses and bacteria and are designed to cross species barriers and to invade genomes. In the process, there's the obvious potential that they may recombine with viruses and bacteria to create new strains that cause diseases. The antibiotic resistance genes may also spread to bacteria associated with serious diseases such as meningitis and tuberculosis. GM constructs that invade genomes may recombine with, and wake up dormant viruses that have now been found in all genomes (reviewed in 8).

13. GM crops are turning out to be useless as well as unsafe. The bacterial bt-toxins, engineered into many crops, are poisonous for beneficial and endangered species such as lacewings, the Monarch butterfly as well as the black swallowtail (11). Bt crops encourage new resistant pests to evolve. Stink Bugs in North Carolina and Georgia are eating up the bt-cotton crops (12) and have to sprayed with deadly pesticides. A study in the University of Nebraska shows that GM Roundup Ready soya yielded 6-11% less than non-GM soya (13), confirming an earlier Univ. of Wisconsin study which also found that the GM soya required 2 to 5 times more herbicides.

14. The way to fight world hunger is definitely not GM crops. World population figures have been wildly exaggerated. The figure of 10 billion has been bandied about. In fact, figures have had to be revised downwards several times in the late 1990s. By mid-1998, the UN's estimate was that world population will peak at  7.7 billion in 2040, then go into long term decline to 3.6 billion by 2150, less than two-third of today's number (14). (Editor's note: for further explanation see "Global Population Reduction" box at bottom of page.)

15. Population arguments are based on the ecological concept of carrying capacity. Ecologists are increasingly finding that the more biodiverse the ecosystem, the greater the carrying capacity (15), and hence the more people and wild-life it can support. Biodiverse systems are also more stable and resilient. The same principles have guided traditional indigenous farming systems, and are now being re-applied in holistic approaches that integrate indigenous and western scientific knowledge (16). Some 12.5 million hectares around the world are already farmed in this way. The yields have doubled and tripled and are still increasing, at the same time reversing some of the worst environmental, social and health impacts of the green revolution.

16. World market for GM crops has collapsed because people all over the world are rejecting them and opting for organic sustainable agriculture (17). An organic revolution is rising from the grass-roots and also sweeping across the disciplines within western science. From quantum physics to the ecology of complexity and the new genetics, the message is the same: nature is dynamic, interconnected and interdependent (18). Proponents of GM technology are stuck in the mechanistic era, it is that above all that makes the technology both futile and dangerous. It is just not innovative enough!

17. In conclusion, GM crops are not safe, not needed and fundamentally unsound. Far from helping to fight world hunger, they are standing in the way of the necessary global shift to sustainable organic agriculture that can really provide food security and health around the world.

It is imperative that the responsibility for GMO contamination, and protection of organic and other non-GMO crops, must be shifted to the users and manufacturers of the GMO products, essentially making the polluter pay. Many lawyers agree that such contamination constitutes a violation of property rights or a "taking" of the organic producers right to produce a crop free from contamination.   - Acres Magazine, January 2000


Read Your Food Labels!

"A useful tip to the consumer [would be] a primer on how to read the little stickers on loose fruits and vegetables. Besides providing the store's cash registers and computers with product identification and price information, these stickers can tell you a lot about the food you are buying. A label with four digits indicates conventionally grown food. Labels with five digits starting with an 8 indicate that the food is genetically modified. Labels with 5 digits starting with a 9 indicate that the food is organically grown."

- October 2003 issue of Gourmet magazine


Glyphosate Bioaccumulates

"A study commissioned by Friends of the Earth Europe analysed 182 volunteers across 18 EU countries found that 80 (43.9 %) have glyphosate, with a mean of 0.21 μg/L and a maximum of 1.82 μg/L. AMPA  was present in 65 (35.71 %), with a mean of 0.18 μg/L and a maximum of 2.63 μg/L.  In the US, urine samples show concentrations 8 times those in Europe. The analysis, commissioned by Moms Across America, also tested 10 mothers’ breast milk, which came up positive for glyphosate with levels ranging from 76 to 166 µg/L, higher than those in urine, and 760 to 1600 times higher than the European Drinking Water Directive allowed levels for individual pesticides, falling within the range of concentrations at which developmental toxicity has been observed in animal studies."

RESOLUTION NO.  1432-2000
An Emergency Resolution Urging the federal government to require labeling of genetically manipulated foods and further urging a moratorium on the production of such foods until acceptable testing systems are in place.

By:  Council Member Brady

  WHEREAS, genetically engineered foods have not yet been proven safe and are  not tested by any federal agency; and

  WHEREAS, the Food and Drug Administration requires only that companies producing such genetically engineered foods state, on the "honor system", that such foods are safe with no further testing required; and

  WHEREAS, a class action lawsuit has been brought against the Food and Drug Administration to prevent it from continuing to rush such untested foods on the market;

  WHEREAS, numerous bioengineers and scientists have stated that the technology of genetically engineered foods is clearly different from traditional
methods and could lead to a host of undesirable health and environmental problems; and

  WHEREAS, such technology further has potential negative effects in genetic cross-pollination of beneficial plants, insects and other fragile ecosystems;

  WHEREAS, this resolution constitutes an emergency measure for the immediate  preservation of public peace, property, health or safety in that it is essential that the  public know and understand how the foods it purchases are  being produced and  the possible health and environmental risks of such  production, now, therefore,


  Section 1.   That this Council urges the federal government to require labeling of genetically manipulated foods and further urges a moratorium on the production of such genetically manipulated foods until acceptable testing systems are  in place.

  Section 2. That this resolution is hereby declared to be an emergency measure and, provided it receives the affirmative vote of two-thirds of all the members elected to Council, it shall take effect and be in force immediately upon its adoption and approval by the Mayor; otherwise it shall take effect and be in force
from and after the earliest period allowed by law.

Passed, Cleveland City Council, 8/7/00.   Signed by Mayor Michael White, 8/17/00

U.S. Grain Industry Looks at Segregation

Some overseas buyers have been paying higher prices for non-genetically modified (non-GM) grains, prompting the U.S. grain industry to look more closely at segregation. Buyers in Japan, South Korea, and to a lesser extent Europe, are paying premiums of 30 to 40 cents per bushel for conventional U.S. grains

Foreign Buyers Building Supply Network

JAPAN, the world's top grain importer, gets 80 percent of its soybeans and 90 percent of its corn from the United States. Labeling laws go into effect April 2001 in Japan and will require food products containing GMOs to carry labels. Grain traders say the Japanese are already building a network of buying and contracting channels to ensure a sufficient supply of certified non-GM grains.

Labeling News

AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND: At the end of last month, health ministers for Australia and New Zealand announced they had voted in the world's strictest labeling laws. " ... where you have genetically modified food material, then basically that food should be appropriately labeled," he said. Exemptions include: highly refined ingredients and GM processing aids, foods with less than 0.1 percent GM ...

PHILIPPINES: A bill has been introduced into the Philippine legislature calling for the mandatory labeling of foods containing GMOs or produced with technology using GMOs.

GREECE Destroys Cotton, Arrests Protestors: The Greek agricultural ministry announced it would call for the destruction of over 9,000 acres of GMO-contaminated cotton and compensate the farmers with an estimated $3.5 million.

ITALY Bans Four Strains of GM Maize: The Prime Minister of Italy has blocked the sale of four strains of GM maize (corn) because of possible risks to human health and the environment.

SAUDI ARABIA Bans Imports of GM Foods: The government of Saudi Arabia has banned the importation of GM foods, including products containing GM soy oil.

SCOTLAND Takes GMOs Off Menus but Grows GMOs in Crop Trials: Many of Scotland's local authorities have banned GMOs from school meals in their areas of jurisdiction.

KOREA's largest maker of tofu and soybean products, Pulmuone, announced it would eliminate GMOs from its product lines, said the Korea Herald.

According to a CANADIAN flaxseed and oil company, Frito Lay, the Dallas-based snack food giant, is looking for non-GM cooking oils. "Frito Lay was looking for non-genetically modified canola oil to use in their product and asked if we could supply them.

CANADIAN flax farmers want a GM strain [of flax] taken off the market because they fear it could interfere with exports to Europe.

Scientists at Iowa State University say they have found additional evidence that pollen from Bt corn could be deadly to monarch butterflies. The study was published in the journal Oecologia.

Point #14 of Dr. Mae-Wan Ho's article above concerns the United Nation's prediction regarding:

Global Population Reduction

Various agencies around the world have been trying to slow down the growth of the human population.

During the early 1990s, the World Health Organization conducted an extensive vaccination campaign against tetanus in a number of countries. In October 1994, Human Life International became suspicious of the campaign protocols. They obtained several vials of the vaccine and had them analyzed by chemists. Some of the vials were found to contain human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG), a naturally occurring hormone essential for maintaining a pregnancy.

When introduced into the body coupled with a tetanus toxoid carrier, antibodies will be formed not only against tetanus but also against hCG. In this case the body fails to recognize hCG as a friend and will produce anti-hCG antibodies. The antibodies will attack subsequent pregnancies by killing the hCG which naturally sustains a pregnancy. When a woman has sufficient anti-hCG antibodies in her system, she is rendered incapable of maintaining a pregnancy...

Only women were vaccinated, and only women between the ages of 15 and 45...

WHO has been actively involved for more than 20 years in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine...

Today, the World Health Organization confirms that more than twelve billion injections are performed every year...

"Since the IMF became responsible for the Health Budget, only vaccinations are free..." (Tanzania)

Western vaccine magic is being performed in Africa on a breathtaking scale...

From Steven Ransom & Phillip Day, World Without AIDS, pages 156 ff. 


On 30th April 2000 President Clinton formally determined that AIDS is now a national security threat. Vaccinations may soon be distributed throughout Africa with the friendly assistance of the US military.


Makes you wonder what is in the vaccinations being given to yourself and your family, doesn't it? If government agencies and the mega-corporations that make drugs and vaccines are engaged in a conscious policy of global population reduction, why would they care about your health? This goes a long way toward explaining the cancer epidemic. Cancer is the number one cause of death in the world. It seems the population control movement wants to prevent a cure for cancer by any means available. Population control helps explain the deliberate destruction of the usefulness of antibiotics through abusing them in factory farmed animals. Plus, population control explains why the population is being brainwashed with global warming propaganda, when in reality we may be facing imminent global cooling. Cold is far more deadly. The Little Ice Age (1300 - 1870) wiped out half the population of Europe.

World population is presently about 6 billion (2001). If the entire population of the planet moved to Texas there would be 6,300 square feet per family of five, leaving the remainder of the planet for agriculture, industry, recreation and education. Global population reduction became official US government policy on December 10, 1974 with the publication of NSSM 200 "Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for US Security and Overseas Interests" by the American National Security Council. The assumptions underlying this population policy have never been thoroughly investigated. Here we have a major policy of the US government and the United Nations that extends over decades, costs billions of dollars, and involves significant risks that has never been properly assessed. For more information see The War Against Population by Jacqueline Kasun. "One of the best kept secrets in the world is the evil nature of the population control movement. This is the best and most important book on the subject," E. Charles Rice, Professor of Law, University of Notre Dame.

People Aren't The Problem by Jaqueline P. Kasun (Read FREE online, 7 pages)

"There is a single theme behind all our work: we must reduce population levels. Either they do it our way, through nice clean methods, or they will get the kind of mess we have in El Salvador, or in Iran, or Beirut. Population is a political problem. Once population is out of control, it requires authoritarian government, even fascism, to reduce it..." - Thomas Ferguson, case officer, US Office of Population Affairs (OPA). 

Actual experience demonstrates that the best ways to control population are: 1) educate women, 2) provide food security, 3) provide security to the elderly and disabled, and 4) provide basic medical care. Provide these and the fertility rate quickly falls below 2, which means the population begins to decline. 

Watch this 10 minute video by Professor Hans Rosling. According to Professor Rosling in his Don't Panic video, the global population is on track to stabilize at 11 billion.

Preparing for the Global Population Decline (1:32:05) -population will peak at 9 billion by mid century and then begin to decline.

World population will peak at 8 billion by 2040 and then decline.
