  1. The transatlantic rift in genetically modified food policy. (Special Issue: Ethics and the politics of food.)

    Contributor(s):: Ramjoue, C.

    The regulatory structures underlying United States and European Union policies regarding genetically modified (GM) food and crops are fundamentally different. The US regulates GM foods and crops as end products, applying roughly the same regulatory framework that it does to non GM foods or crops....

  2. The US' Food and Drug Administration, normativity of risk assessment, GMOs, and American democracy

    Contributor(s):: Meghani, Z.

    The process of risk assessment of biotechnologies, such as genetically modified organisms (GMOs), has normative dimensions. However, the US' Food and Drug Administration (FDA) seems committed to the idea that such evaluations are objective. This essay makes the case that the agency's regulatory...

  3. Transgenesis in animal agriculture: addressing animal health and welfare concerns

    Contributor(s):: Greger, M.

    The US Food and Drug Administration's final Guidance for Industry on the regulation of transgenesis in animal agriculture has paved the way for the commercialization of genetically engineered (GE) farm animals. The production-related diseases associated with extant breeding technologies are...

  4. Understanding the scope of farmer perceptions of risk: considering farmer opinions on the use of genetically modified (GM) crops as a stakeholder voice in policy

    Contributor(s):: Guehlstorf, N. P.

    This study explores the relationship of farmer attitudes and GM agriculture. A survey was conducted on 200 farmer adopters and non-adopters of GM crops within the counties of Madison, Macoupin, Jersey and Feyette in Illinois, USA on the perception of risk in relation to GM food production and...

  5. Value pluralism and coherentist justification of ethical advice. (Special Issue: Ethical tools.)

    Contributor(s):: Forsberg, E. M.

    Liberal societies are characterized in terms of a fundamental value pluralism, i.e., respect for individuals' rights to live by their own concept of what is good. Still, the state must make decisions that give privilege to some values at the expense of others. When public ethics committees give...

  6. You are what you eat: genetically modified foods, integrity, and society. (Special issue: Ethics as a dimension of agrifood policy: selected papers from the 4th Congress of the European Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics)

    Contributor(s):: Pascalev, A.

    I develop a set of objections to genetically modified foods (GMF) grounded in the concept of integrity and maintain that food and food choice can be connected to the agent's personal integrity. I argue that due to the constitution of GMF and the manner in which they are produced, such foods are...

  7. "The Frankenstein thing": the moral impact of genetic engineering of agricultural animals on society and future science

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  8. An ethical dilemma for animal research: the creation of transgenic animal models for human genetic disease

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  9. Bad ethics, good ethics and the genetic engineering of animals in agriculture

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  10. Biotechnology and Animals: Ethical Issues in Genetic Engineering and Cloning

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, Bernard E.

  11. Genetic Engineering and the Sacred

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, Bernard E.

  12. Keeping Up with the Cloneses--Issues in Human Cloning

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, Bernard E.

  13. On "Telos" and Genetic Manipulation

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, Bernard

  14. On telos and genetic engineering

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  15. Send in the clones...don't bother, they're here

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B.

    The creation of a cloned sheep from mammary tissue has raised major social concern and has highlighted major ethical issues associated with the technology. This paper attempts to separate the genuine ethical issues from the spurious ones. It is suggested that the research community has failed to...

  16. Telos, value and genetic engineering

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  17. The 'Frankenstein Thing:" The Moral Impact of Genetic Engineering of Agricultural Animals on Society and Future Science

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, B. E.

  18. The Frankenstein syndrome : ethical and social issues in the genetic engineering of animals

    Contributor(s):: Rollin, Bernard E.

  19. Genetics and animal domestication: new windows on an elusive process

    Contributor(s):: Dobney, K., Larson, G.

    Domesticated animals are universally familiar. How, when, where and why they became domesticated is less well understood. The genetic revolution of the past few decades has facilitated novel insights into a field that previously was principally the domain of archaeozoologists. Although some of...

  20. Ethical limits to domestication

    Contributor(s):: Sandoe, P., Holtug, N., Simonsen, H. B.

    This paper is about the ethical limits to the genetic changes in the make-up of farm animals through either selective breeding or genetic engineering. It is suggested that the ethical significance of domestication has become clear recently in the light of genetic engineering, but that the problem...
