Your Questions About Disadvantages Of Golden Rice

Joseph asks…

Is golden rice currently being produced and used, or not?

Justin answers:

Golden Rice will only be made available to farmers and consumers after it has been approved by national regulatory bodies.

Leading nutrition and agricultural research organizations are working together to evaluate Golden Rice as a potential tool to reduce vitamin A deficiency in the Philippine and Bangladesh. The International Rice Research Institute is leading a project that will help establish the safety of Golden Rice; evaluate whether consumption of Golden Rice improves vitamin A status; and ensure that, if Golden Rice is deployed, it will reach the poor and those most in need.

To help establish the safety of Golden Rice in the environment, field trials and other evaluations will be conducted in both the Philippines and Bangladesh. Golden Rice will be analyzed according to internationally accepted guidelines for food safety. Safety research will be done by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (Philrice) and Bangladesh Rice Research Institute (BRRI) who will submit all safety information to their respective national government regulators, which may be as early as 2013 (Philippines) and 2015 (Bangladesh). Regulators will review these data as part of the approval process for Golden Rice before it can be released to farmers and consumers.

Once the safety of Golden Rice is confirmed, Helen Keller International (HKI), an international nongovernmental organization that prevents blindness and reduces malnutrition for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in the world, will lead a number of studies in order to evaluate the nutritional benefit and efficacy of Golden Rice in improving vitamin A status. This includes both clinical and community research to show how a daily meal of Golden Rice could improve vitamin A status and how Golden Rice reduces vitamin A deficiency under controlled community conditions. Under the leadership of HKI, the partners will also design and test a delivery program to ensure that Golden Rice can reach farmers and consumers, especially those who need it most, in a sustainable manner in the Philippines and Bangladesh.

Golden Rice will be introduced by PhilRice and BRRI in rice varieties that are already popular with local farmers. Early on in our work, cooking and taste tests will be done to help make sure these qualities of Golden Rice meet consumers’ needs. Golden Rice seeds are expected to cost farmers and consumers the same as other varieties.

If, at the end of this project, Golden Rice is proven to be safe, improve vitamin A status, and reach the poor and those most in need, the partners will continue to work to introduce it in the Philippines and Bangladesh as another approach in fighting vitamin A deficiency.

John asks…

What is a GM Crop and what are the advantages/disadvantages? Why would the government ban them??

Justin answers:

GM) foods are foods produced from genetically modified organisms (GMO) that have had their DNA altered through genetic engineering. GM foods were first put on the market in the early 1990s. The most common modified foods are derived from plants: soybean, corn, canola, and cotton seed oil.

Organic Consumers Association, and Greenpeace respond by claiming the long term health risks which GM could pose, or that the risks of GM have not yet been adequately investigated.

Some scientists and economists express concern about the alleged harm delaying welfare and environmental improvements, for instance by provitamin A enriched Golden rice which is said to have the potential to prevent children from Vitamin A deficiency, and insect protected Bt rice which can potentially reduce exposure of farmers to synthetic insecticides.

Other scientists and studies, however, dispute such findings and argue that GM foods aren’t tested to scientific standards before being released to the public. The only way to discern whether a product is organic are through a numerical bar code label on the product.

Mark asks…

Who saw channel 4’s “Animal Farm” a documentary about genetic engineering on moday? (the final program is 2/4)

What do you think about Genetic engineering? There is no doubt that there are benefits of genetic engineering, but on the other hand there is no doubt that there are disadvantages as well! What do you think?

Personally, some genetic engineering is good e.g. “Golden Rice” while others are not so good e.g. stem cell research using an embryo.

Justin answers:

Think it clashed with strictly come ice dancing with the x factor in the fame acadamy USA who had been castaway…

Robert asks…

what is the disadvantages of golden rice?

Justin answers:

No disadvantages at all, no racism please

Ken asks…

Advantages and disadvantages of golden rice, please?

Justin answers:

It’s a genetically modified product, and feelings often run high over that issue.

It was developed as a fortified product (extra Vitamin A) for areas where getting close to a million children a year die from a deficiency. The link below says the latest type contains up to 23x more ß-carotene than the original version.

It’s hard to say what you’d class as disadvantages, because I don’t have any issue with GM food and so cannot see opposition from activists as proof of a meaningful disadvantage.

It’s probably best to read the link (and search out more) and put your own together based on your own views.

Paul asks…

Can someone tell me a bit about investing in gold? For instance…?

I have an online brokerage acct that I handle myself (but I’m brand new to it – it’s TD Ameritrade). Can I buy gold through something like that? Is it just like going into a pawn shop or something and buying broken gold? Is it buying gold certificates?

I hear all the time that gold is a good investment – but I don’t know if a) that’s true or b) how to do it.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

financi4 answers:

There are two ways to invest in gold. From your TD account, you can buy gold certificate. Basically, it’s a piece of paper that says you own a certain amount of gold. The value of the gold certificate goes up and down just like gold.

Or if you prefer owning actual physical gold, you can buy gold coins or gold bars from banks or local coin shops. Pick the one that says 9999, it means .9999 pure. I recommend Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Coin. The best quality in the world.

Good luck

David asks…

Where’s the best place to buy Silver (and maybe Gold)?

I’ve been thinking about investing in Silver and would like to know the best place (online or not) to buy silver coins and bars. I’ve done some research and some sites have not-so-good quality (although it’s silver, I would like some pretty coins and bars) coins and such. Just need advice on the best place. Good quality and such. Thanks (:

financi4 answers:

Assuming you just want the “pure” silver coins for investment value, search for “bullion” coins.

APMEX and Gainesville Coins are probably the 2 biggest names in the USA for these. Some of the common series names to look out for if you are just after stock standard bullion are “American Silver Eagle”, “Canadian Silver Maple Leaf” and “Austrian Philharmonic”.

Note: You can’t buy bullion coins direct from the United States Mint.

Joseph asks…

how/where can I invest money in an ipo?

I have no experience in investing except for some silver/gold and some coins/paper currency! what I am looking to do is take about $500 – $1000 and invest in and ipo, or sign up on e-trade or some other online ivesting company I’m looking to make fast money with taking risk! I am willing to take a high risk if the returns can be very lucrative! Please give me some input if you have experience I want to also have access to my money if i want to take it out or move it somewhere else!!!

financi4 answers:

I agree with the other answerer that you’re not going to make a quick fortune with that amount of cash on an IPO. The other thing about IPOs is that if you trade on the first day, you’d better know what you’re doing or you stand a good chance of getting burned by buying too high, for example and then watching the share price of the stock go down below what you paid and you might have to wait a long time for it to get back up to what you paid, (and it’s even possible it might never get back up to that price if the stock is a dog). It’s better to wait until after the first day of an IPO and see how the stock moves for awhile instead of jumping in on Day 1.

I know, because I made the mistake of thinking I could make a quick profit on Day 1 of Pandora’s recent IPO, and I messed up and ended up paying way more than I should have, and the stock never went back up to what I paid for it. If you go into the stock market without doing simulated or paper trading or just learning as much as you can before you jump in, you WILL lose money, unless you’re just very lucky. Some people can absorb the loss of a thousand bucks without breaking a sweat…for other people, it can be fairly devastating, so be very careful.

financi4 answers:

Your not going to be able to start your own business for free. Your going to have to put some sort of investment into a business as well as time to build a business. If your looking for something free that only pays you , then your looking for a home job which pays minimum wage, or low pay. Sorry, but No business is free to have. If they say it’s free, then your really not owing it or even a share of it. Most home based business cost under $500 to start for online as well as offline businesses. Traditional businesses with the expense of leasing a building, utilities etc then the price goes way up there. Home based businesses have the same income opportunity as a traditional business does. They do not have all the over head expenses as a traditional business has either. Most everything in your home becomes a tax write off So this means more profit for you.

There are so many different types of home based business to get involved in. But if their is no investment, then you don’t have a business no matter what type of business it is. There is always going to be money to be paid out.

A friend of mine created a blog on her yahoo page on Home based Business opportunities. Also a lot of information that you should read about on home based businesses including internet businesses, blogs, reports, scams and the BBB. It’s not too long, just some issues that people need to know. Http://blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-eqfAfFMlcqA8fDHDwdpcueRYyTm4

Good Luck in your venture!
