As per this article, Russia has banned all GMO products for 10 years. I quote:
If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.” –Medvedev
“It is necessary to ban GMOs, to impose moratorium (on) it for 10 years. While GMOs will be prohibited, we can plan experiments, tests, or maybe even new methods of research could be developed. It has been proven that not only in Russia, but also in many other countries in the world, GMOs are dangerous. Methods of obtaining the GMOs are not perfect, therefore, at this stage, all GMOs are dangerous. Consumption and use of GMOs obtained in such way can lead to tumours, cancers and obesity among animals. Bio-technologies certainly should be developed, but GMOs should be stopped. We should stop it from spreading. ” – Irina Ermakova, VP of Russia’s National Association for Genetic Safety
Few understand that GMOs made their way into the American food chain back in the era of Bush Sr. who, according to William Engdahl, introduced the “doctrine of substantial equivalence” into the FDA, which allowed GMO products to flow unfettered into the American food chain, as if they were the same as non-GMO products, with no testing or approval required.
Tests conducted by Seralini using the same testing regime purportedly used by Monsanto showed clear evidence of tumour growth in rats. There was an outcry from over 100 scientists when Monsanto used their usual techniques to have the peer reviewed paper retracted.
But perhaps the worm is turning away from the efforts of the eugenics crowd, whose interests Monsanto and others support through their GMO foods, as one plank in a complex strategy to reduce the human population to under 0.5BN people, amongst other things.
