in agriculture products using these same tools have been coded as producing “GMOs” evoking almost universally an aura of unique risk and special regulation Science is invoked and attacked as providing sufficient evidence for assuring safety in the use of GMOs Though associated with wealthy economies historically genetically engineered crops grown in “developing countries” in 2012 exceeded total acres grown in the so-called developed countries for the first time India was the 16th country to approve a genetically engineered crop: Bt cotton in 2002 Controversy over India’s second Bt crop — brinjal — was intense centred on the adequacy of science in assessing risk Risk is an elastic and elusive concept In common use risk is part of everyday life but seldom formalised In normal science risk has a precise but deceptively simple meaning: risk equals the probability of some hazard Anyone booking a flight taking prescription drugs or scheduling surgery recognises potential hazards We regularly take some risks because of expected benefits or because the risk of doing nothing is higher The question is always: compared to what Ideally regulation of any technology would reach some threshold of acceptable risk — balanced with benefits — for a whole society Conceptually simple these comparisons are devilishly difficult Often neither hazard nor probability is known or cannot be measured The economist Jack Knight wrote in the 1920s that this situation is one of uncertainty not risk In the world of uncertainty risk is of necessity a social construction The common cellphone is a good example: there is some evidence of hazard no proof of hazard and no estimate of probabilities but such obvious utility that hypothetical risk is discounted by nearly everyone Science cannot assess uncertainty nor determine appropriate risk preferences; these are of necessity political decisions For agricultural biotechnology the precondition for risk regulation would ask of science: do transgenic plants produce more hazards than cultivars bred by other means Though there may well be new hazards none has been demonstrated in mainstream science to date The European Commission Directorate-General for Research assessed available regulatory science for environmental and food-safety risks in A Decade of EU-funded GMO Research (2001-2010): “The main conclusion to be drawn from the efforts of more than 130 research projects covering a period of more than 25 years of research and involving more than 500 independent research groups is that biotechnology and in particular GMOs are not per se more risky than [for example] conventional plant breeding technologies” (page 16) Like China and Brazil India supported biotechnology for its potential benefits and established institutions of state science to assess risks Bt cotton utilised an insecticidal protein derived from a common soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis hence “Bt” to control pests in cotton with less pesticide; the results dramatically demonstrated benefits The same technology applied to brinjal raised the risk bar because it is a food crop The Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) after nine years of tests involving seven government agencies and departments approved release of the crop by both the private and public sectors based on comparative assessment of options Hazards to both farmers and consumers were documented in current practices of heavy pesticide application — some unapproved for food crops No hazards from the insecticidal protein were found through standard safety protocols; GEAC findings conformed to the EU’s general conclusions This statutory state science was not decisive however Then minister for environment Jairam Ramesh concluded that the GEAC studies were inadequate; risks to food safety and the environment were posited Neither hypothetical risk was explicitly compared to known hazards of existing practices; uncertainty trumped demonstrable risk Food safety was the most telling example Only one study not peer-reviewed and funded by an international campaigner against biotechnology was cited as evidence of hazard: organ damage and death However Professor Gilles-Eric Séralini’s claims about Bt proteins had been rejected by the GMO Panel of the European Food Safety Authority; his most recent article positing cancer risks was retracted after publication by Food and Chemical Toxicology — a rare and embarrassing step for a journal With GMOs as with climate science there coexists a core of scientific consensus and persistence of denialism in the scientific community The minister’s logic was precautionary consistent with one line of international practice This is a global pattern of conflicting logics of developmental states and precautionary states Developmental states embrace some uncertainty: continuation of the status quo likewise entails uncertainties and often known hazards Precautionary states in contrast privilege caution over opportunity; uncertainty is coded as unacceptable risk States are divided between these approaches; the location of official science in the state then fundamentally affects outcomes Ministries of environment tend to be preservationist hence precautionary Ministries of agriculture or science and technology have different missions more in common with the logic of developmentalism Exactly this division appeared in India over Bt brinjal; as environment held the decisive voice the crop was not approved This dialectic of risk and benefit encounters the Goldilocks Paradox of all regulation; the level of cautionary restriction should be not too much not too little but just right Excessive regulation is suffocating and adverse to equity Too little precaution might produce hazards that entail unacceptable risk The strictest regulation enables multinational life science corporations with capacity and connections to win at the expense of small firms and public science Bio-safety regimes empower officials over farmers; scarce public resources are wasted in surveillance and control rather than innovation Investment in both public and private sectors is depressed If effective technologies are blocked agriculture is needlessly crippled It is ethically difficult to justify depriving farmers of the same technical progress urban people take for granted Finally with climate change continually producing new challenges to agriculture ruling out any tools for response is itself a risky proposition The writer professor of government at Cornell University edited the book ‘Transgenics and the Poor: Biotechnology in Development Studies’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Vivek Deshpande | Nagpur | Published: August 12 2017 3:58 am The reply shows that infant (0-1 year) deaths were up from 207 to 280 child (0-6years) deaths from 283 to 407 and mothers’ deaths from 7 to 15 (Representational image) Related News An RTI query has revealed that the total number of deaths of children and mothers as well as of stillbirths in the Melghat region of Amravati district has gone up by a whopping 200 between 2015-16 and 2016-17 The RTI query was filed by activist Abhay Kolarkar The reply shows that infant (0-1 year) deaths were up from 207 to 280 child (0-6years) deaths from 283 to 407 and mothers’ deaths from 7 to 15 The stillbirth number however dropped marginally from 141 to 136 All four categories together showed a rise of 200 from 638 in 2015-16 to 838 in 2016-17 Interestingly all these numbers were showing continued decline on government records from 2012-13 when the total of all four above-mentioned heads was 828 Over the next three years the official records showed the number dropping to 728 705 and 638 In these four years the infant death count was 280 242 231 and 207 and child death was 408 338 344 and 283 The still-birth count recorded was 127 134 123 and 141 Corresponding numbers for mothers’ deaths for these four years were recorded as 13 14 7 and 7 The total number of births in the years 2012-13 to 2016-17 were registered as 6658 6398 5558 5945 and 4917 The infant mortality rate (IMR) – deaths per 1000 births – for these years works out to 42 37 41 43 and 56 in that order In 2017-18 the official numbers are again showing a drop Against 942 births till June 17 the infant death tally stands at 35 child deaths 45 stillbirths 22 and mother’s death 1 According to health activist Ashish Satav whose Mahan Trust is providing healthcare in over 100 villages in Dharni and Chikhaldara tahsils that together constitute Melghat the sudden spurt in 2016-17 is actually due to the September 5 2016 directive of the Bombay High Court to the state government to correctly and diligently report all the deaths and desist from under-reporting “From our experience in these 100 villages we knew that the government numbers were not covering all the deaths So we had filed a PIL in the HC that had directed correct reporting of all deaths and evaluation of the numbers by an independent agency That work was carried out by UNICEF” Satav told The Indian Express District Health Officer Suresh Asole said “This year we have started intensive examination of children as well as mothers at health camps held every fortnight as per directives of Health Minister Deepak Sawant These camps have helped arrest the rising trend As of now the number of infant deaths till June this year stands at half the corresponding figure of last year” He added: “We are holding three more camps on August 13 which the minister will visit personally” Kolarkar’s RTI query reply also shows the current status of government healthcare facilities in Melghat The list has 1 sub-district hospital 2 rural hospitals 11 primary health centres 6 primary health squads 7 mobile health squads 4 ayurvedic dispensaries 1 allopathic dispensary 95 sub-centres and 22 flying squads Together however these have only one child specialist two women’s health specialists and one anaesthetist For all the latest City Others News download Indian Express App More Related News Even at the World Qualifying event, Lataji,500 crore has already been spent as part of the Yamuna Action Plan to revive the river with little to show for it.possessed the qualities of its characters: It dragged rather like Bhagwanti did her tired feet, 2016 4:22 pm Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha celebrates scoring their second goal against Middlesbrough.We have come to know that the scrap dealer told her to open the lid of the container by heating the upper part of its body for sometime.
