Safe Food Foundation Director, Scott Kinnear, University of Canterbury Professor, Jack Heinemann, and Flinders University Professor, Judy Carman, discuss the potential threats of CSIRO’s GM Wheat.
Professor Jack Heinemann, a molecular biologist at the University of Canterbury, says, “The technology is too new, therefore it’s important that we have a battery of studies that are conducted on the wheat to convince people, myself, scientists, regulators that the wheat can be eaten by people.”
He goes on, “What we found is that the molecules created in this wheat, intended to silence wheat genes, can match human genes and through ingestion these molecules can enter human beings and potentially silence our genes.”
