Unless genetically engineered crops (GMOs) are restricted, then our choice to grow and eat non-GMO will be a moot point because contamination will have ended our ability to choose.
While organic farmers try and figure out how to survive in the face of what appears to be an unstoppable government backed onslaught on their very right to exist, biotech firms along with their flunky farmers are doing the happy dance. Why? Because they are apparently immune from any type of liability if their GMO crops contaminate and ruin organic farms.
In the long run, every healthy food crop is threatened. How can pure farming survive intact, when particles containing GMOs are in the wind?
The Chemicals Regulation Directorate, the European Food Safety Authority and the European Commission are in the hands of the pesticides industry. Report details toxicity and government apathy towards public safety.
Tell me again about how I should feel grateful that Monsanto tells us that it will not sue if the contamination levels of its GMO seeds in our crops are under 1% when the seed we purchase is contaminated with levels of 1-3%, with an average likely of at least 2%?
