Pharm Crops Ignoring Health and Environment
The promises of pharm crops undermined by threats to health and environment
Prof. Joe Cummins 9th November 2011

Magnifection, Safe Pharming or Doomsday Device?
Biologicals - recombinant proteins used as drugs, vaccines or antibodies – are found to cause adverse side effects including death much more frequently than conventional synthetic chemical drugs
Prof. Joe Cummins and Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 5th March 2009

‘Biologicals’, Wonder Drugs with Problems
Protein drugs produced by genetic engineering cause adverse events including death more frequently than synthetic chemical drugs; yet they are being produced in transgenic crops grown in open fields
Prof. Joe Cummins 4th March 2009

GM Safflower with Human Pro-Insulin
Regulators show cavalier disregard for the safety of threatened species as well as human beings in proposed release of the GM pharm crop.
Prof. Joe Cummins 18th July 2007

This article has been submitted to the USDA on behalf of the Independent Science Panel
Prof. Joe Cummins 7th November 2005

GM Pharmaceuticals from Common Green Alga
Amid widespread protests against using crop plants to produce genetically modified pharmaceuticals, companies are turning to the single-cell green alga Chlamydomonas touted as a "safe" alternative; but not when it is to be grown in largescale outdoor bioreactors
Prof. Joe Cummins and Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 22nd July 2005

Molecular Pharming by Chloroplast Transformation
The advantages are also its greatest hazards; no environmental releases should be considered.
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins 20th July 2005

Molecular Pharming - the New Battlefront over GM Crops
The biggest battle for democracy in the 'heartland of democracy' is being fought over GM crops and it has shifted to molecular pharming
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho 19th July 2005

Crop plants are being used to produce a range of vaccines and drugs including powerful molecules that affect cells of the immune system. The inevitable contamination of our food crops has been uncovered
Prof. Joe Cummins 31st January 2003

'Pharmageddon' / Risks of Edible Transgenic Vaccines
Our fields are being turned into pharmaceutical and industrial factories that poison our food supply and entire life support system. Our governments have been warned and should be held liable for all damages along with the companies involved
Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Joe Cummins 2nd December 2002

Poison Pharm Crops Near You
Pharm crops are crops genetically modified to produce gene products that are pharmaceutically active. Such bio-pharmaceuticals are frequently active in minute quantities and expensive to produce in cell cultures or whole animals, and so the companies turn to crop plants.
Prof. Joe Cummins 7th March 2002
