STOP PRESS - an end to GMO?
Reuters reports that public pressure against Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs) in Europe has now been so successful that Monsanto - possibly the most evil corporation that ever existed - has decided to withdraw its requests for approval there.
This is fantastic news for health advocates and real-food lovers everywhere, who have been campaigning for years to prevent these abominations from becoming as widespread as they have become in the US, Canada, South America and virtually everywhere else that the US "Big AGRICULTURE" machine has domination of the political debate (if there ever were such a thing).
Jose Manuel Madero, Monsanto's President and Managing Director for Europe, has reportedly told Reuters that "We will be withdrawing the approvals in the coming months,". The move is a major victory for common sense and for the millions of people who have been fighting against the acceptance of genetically modified foods in Europe.
As a result, several corn, soy and sugar beet crops will be prevented from contaminating Europe's fields, though both farmland and supermarket shelves continue to be threatened both by existing approvals and by the massive amount of these products imported from North America in particular, where non-GMO crops are all but non-existent now (at least in volume terms).
The move follows massive public concern about genetic modification and its effects on the environment, which have been all but ignored by the boffins who think it wise to insert fish genes into tomatoes in order to prop up supermarket profits and to gain total control of the food supply by patenting everything they possibly can.
Non-GMO crops continue to be threatened both by contamination from their unnatural cousins and by the aggressive actions of GM manufacturers to outlaw the most basic of human rights - the right to grow healthy, natural and chemical-free food.
