One of the reasons why I really enjoyed my last holiday is seeing the garden of my mother in my place in Tabaco City. I was overwhelmed when I saw the changes in my place, knowing that it was just almost 3 months since I last left Tabaco after the typhoon. I was like a child enjoying the beauty of the greeneries and blooms of my mother’s garden [check my album: Hardin ni Doday]. I can’t resist to wake up 5 am in the morning while I was in Tabaco, just to check which flower in my mother’s garden started to bloom. It also gave a great enjoyment when every morning we have to harvest vegetables in her vegetable garden. Flowers and greens really make a big difference in the environment. I encourage everyone to have a garden [big or small in their own backyard, it will not only provide tranquility but also will save you money of buying vegetables from the market, aside from the fact that you will be eating veggies straight from the garden.

BPI says questioned GMO corn passed stringent tests
(Mar 30, 2007)
The Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) yesterday clarified that the strictest tests and most stringent standards were applied by authorities on the genetically-modified organism (GMOs) Corn MON863 before it was approved for entry and cultivation in the Philippines.BPI said in a statement that it approved the GMO “for direct use as food or feed and for processing on October 7, 2003 based on a stringent regulatory process and compliance of the applicant on the terms and conditions set forth under Department of Agriculture (DA) Administrative Order No. 8, Series of 2002.”Joel Rudinas, BPI officer-in-charge (OIC) director, said that contrary to fears raised by the international environmental watchdog Greenpeace in an article that appeared in the Bulletin last March 22, “the safety assessments were conducted based on the context of international agreements like the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, Codex Alimentarius and International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).”In addition, stressed Rudinas, “Corn MON863 has undergone a process of scientific and technical assessment. Under DA AO8, the scientific evidence on the safety of the Corn MON863 was examined thoroughly by an independent team of the Scientific and Technical Review Panel (STRP) and parallel examination done by technical personnel of the Bureau of Agriculture, Fisheries and Product Standards (BAFPS) for food safety and the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI) for feed safety.”Earlier, Greenpeace claimed that the corn strain showed signs of toxicity based on a study undertaken by a panel of three independent scientists in France. The study, argued Greenpeace, showed that laboratory rats fed with the GMO corn Monsanto (MON) 863 YieldGard Rootworm displayed kidney and liver toxicity.MON 863 is corn genetically manipulated to produce its own insecticide called “modified Cry3Bb1” to kill rootworm insects in the soil, and contains gene coding for antibiotic resistance.Rudinas said “the evaluation is rigorous and the BPI and its partner-institutions ensure that only genetically-modified crops that have been well studied and found safe to human and animal health are allowed into our food supply and into our environment.”Given these processes, the BPI director said “the DA upholds the permit for Corn MON863, which allows the importation of the regulated article for direct use as food, feed and for processing. The department, however, shall revisit the risk assessment for Corn MON863 if new data provide that the risks have changed.”Moreover, Rubinas added, “the DA and its regulatory agencies will continue to monitor all GM crops and products that have been granted commercial approval to ensure that there are no significant risks to human and animal health and the environment.”Entitled “New Analysis of a Rat Feeding Study with a Genetically Modified Maize Reveals Signs of Hepatorenal Toxicity,” the study was published in the scientific journal “Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology.”The study analyzed results of safety tests submitted by Monsanto to the European Commission (EC) when the company was seeking authorization to market MON 863 in the European Union.The data shows that significant health risks were associated with the GMO corn. Still, EC granted licenses to market MON 863 for consumption by both humans and animals. The incriminating data was obtained by Greenpeace following a court case, and was passed on for evaluation by a team of experts headed by Prof. Gilles Eric Séralini, a governmental expert in genetic-engineering from the University of Caen in France.

Marhay na aldaw tabi mga tugang kong Bicolanos. Marhay man na nai-post tabi ni Duanean bareta na “Beware of GMO Rice sold in Supermarkets…”para mainpormaran kamo gabos na igwa palan ki mga arog kaining pigpapabakal sa mga Supermarts. This was already checked by the DA and the DTI so dont worry tabi. For more info, the DA is not propagating these kind of Rice mentioned (LL601 or Uncle Sam Texas Long Grain Rice or the Liberty Rice). The variety of rice seedlings which the DA propagates were the varieties M1, M3, SL-8, Bigante, Rizalin and Bio401 which all passed the tests. Still, the DA encourages the propagation and the production of our native rice particularly the “Unnoy”, “Kintoman” varieties in the upland areas of the Cordillera Region. These are the native varieties being planted in the Rice Terraces areas of the said region and the other upland areas of other regions. With these native varieties, the locals are using the conventional or the organic way of producing rice and with this, the produceare now being exported to the US, Canada and in Europe and it cost about Php 50 – 70 /kilo. I dont know if in the Bicol region they have this kind of rice being planted but here in the Cordilleras, these are being propagated. In our markets here including high-end supermarts, the rice being sold were not the type mentioned by Duane. Anyway, please check with the Department of Agriculture Regional Office #5, Pili, Camarines Sur for more info regarding these concerns. Salamat po !
