Prof. Joe Cummins and Dr. Mae-Wan Ho call for a global forum and a ban on testing pharm crops, especially in Third World countries.

The use of Third World countries for testing and producing plant-based pharmaceuticals unacceptable both in Europe and the United States smacks of colonialism. It also raises the spectre of unmonitored and unregulated human exposures to the dangerous products. This problem will be exacerbated as opposition to pharm crops is growing in the United States, and more Third World countries will be targeted for test sites and production facilities.
