“黄金大米”项目中方研究员遭停职调查 China Suspends Research

更新时间:2012-09-13    来源/发布:www.en369.cn    作者/编辑:英语作文网

China's national health watchdog suspended one of its researchers after announcing it hadn't approved or participated in a 2008 Sino-U.S. study that examined the effect of genetically modified vitamin-enriched rice on 24 children.
中国国家卫生监督机构宣布其没有批准或参与2008年中美之间的一项研究,该机构同时暂停了一位研究人员的工作。前述研究是为了检验一种富含维生素的转基因大米对24名儿童的影响。
There is no indication that the children have been harmed, but the agency's response is likely to further entrench widely held public skepticism in China over genetically modified grains amid broader food-safety concerns ranging from dairy products to cooking oil.
没有迹象表明参与试验的儿童受到伤害,但在公众对从奶制品到食用油等一系列食品的安全普遍感到担忧的情况下,上述监督机构的回应有可能进一步加深中国公众对转基因谷物的普遍质疑。
Unlike the U.S., where genetically modified grain is common, China prohibits its use in human consumption and limits its domestic production, although it allows some imports as animal feed. Such grains are politically unpopular in China, where much of the public believes they can impact human biology.
转基因谷物在美国很常见,但与美国不同,中国禁止转基因谷物用于人类消费并限制其国内生产,但中国允许进口部分转基因谷物作为动物饲料。从政治角度上讲,转基因谷物在中国不受欢迎,很多公众认为转基因谷物会影响人类生物系统。
Still, the market is a potentially massive one for the industry of providing genetically modified crops. For example, China is the world's No. 1 producer and consumer of rice. White rice─China's staple starch─lacks vitamin A, a shortage that also presents a market opportunity for genetic scientists.
尽管如此,对于转基因农作物种植业来说,中国是一个潜力巨大的市场。例如,中国是全球稻米的第一大生产和消费国。由于中国人的主食白米饭缺乏维生素A,这给基因科学家提供了一个市场机会。
The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday evening that it and its affiliates didn't approve the 2008 'Golden Rice' research project, jointly conducted by researchers from China and Massachusetts-based Tufts University. The project was detailed in a paper published in the August edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
中国疾病预防控制中心周一晚间说,该机构及其直属单位没有批准2008年一项名为“黄金大米”的研究项目。这项研究由来自中国和美国马萨诸塞州塔夫茨大学(Tufts University)的研究人员共同进行。今年8月《美国临床营养杂志》(American Journal of Clinical Nutrition)发表的一篇论文中详细说明了这项研究的成果。
The paper described testing a vitamin-enriched strain of genetically modified rice on 24 children aged 6 to 8 in rural Hunan province. The project was aimed at testing whether the genetically modified staple could reduce vitamin A deficiency, which can cause blindness and death in malnourished children. The study found the genetically modified rice as effective as pure beta-carotene, the pigment that the human body converts to vitamin A. It also found the rice superior to spinach at providing vitamin A to children.
