Randox EMS has been developed to identify all aspects associated with its business operations that can interact with the environment and potentially result in environmental impacts. With several sites in close proximity to Lough Neagh, Randox have carried out numerous projects to enhance the local environment. Lough Neagh is internationally recognised as an important area for wildlife. The Lough is designated as an Area of Special Scientific Interest (ASSI) and Special Protection Area (SPA) as it provides an important habitat for breeding, over-wintering and migrating birds. The area’s wetlands are also of international importance designated under the RAMSAR convention. To support and improve biodiversity Randox have set areas aside for wild bird cover and rough grass margins, planted in excess of 95,000 native broadleaf and native fruit orchards as well as various pollen and nectar mixes. All of these changes have resulted in increased flora and fauna biodiversity, confirmed by nesting bird surveys carried out by the RSPB and Farmer Alliance volunteers.
Today, we applaud the reintroduction of Ohio ’s Ban on Human Cloning and Animal-Human Hybrid, . 308, introduced by State Representative Andy Thompson of Ohio ’s 95 th District, along with eleven House co-sponsors. OCA President Chris Long states, “For the past ten years, OCA along with other pro-life organizations, has been working with members of the Ohio Legislature to ban embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and in recent years, animal-human hybrid. Some medical laboratories have delved into the surreal world of intermixing animal and human DNA with no legal or moral boundaries. These experimental practices simply are outrageous! Animal-human hybrid research is currently being conducted in England , which many in the international medical community now consider to be a rogue medical state. This experimentation has also been conducted in . laboratories, thus the need for legislative language to provide guardrails.”
