Jonathan Latham Speaks in New Zealand Sept 1-Sept 8, 2018: Impacts of Gene Editing technologies

Dr. Jonathan Latham will speak in Featherston, Wellington, Palmerston North, Raglan, Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland.

GE technologies: impacts for our Food, Agriculture and Biosafety Regulation?

We expose our world to unique hazards with every new technology. Gene Editing technologies are becoming one of the most discussed issues of our day.

There is documented evidence into the unpredictability of genetic engineering. Yet there is mounting pressure for new gene technologies to be used with no regulatory supervision.

Dr. Latham will talk on the politics of food. The problems with both the internal culture of decision makers, the legal framework that is often fraught with industry influences that prevent precautionary decision-making, even when the science clearly points to danger. The importance of a strong regulatory system that will ensure we have a healthy food system and a healthy world.
