(NaturalNews) Several large shipments of genetically-modified (GM) corn and corn seeds originating from the U.S. have been destroyed by the Chinese government after being discovered by import officials at numerous locations across the country. At least three shipments of GM corn detected at the Wanzai Port in Zhuhai City near Macau were reportedly destroyed after being successfully intercepted by government officials, while another 21 cartons of GM corn seeds weighing more than 250 pounds were destroyed in the northern Chinese city of Harbin.

According to Chinese law, any import containing GMOs must be accompanied by the appropriate environmental and food safety tests conducted by Chinese institutions, not the biotechnology industry. This data is first submitted to the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture for review, and next passed on to the National Biosafety Committee for further review. If said data is eventually deemed adequate and meets strict guidelines, the corresponding shipment will be issued an appropriate safety certificate verifying its integrity and permitting its import.

But none of this was done for any of the GM corn, which had been shipped directly into China by an unnamed U.S. biotechnology company (the name of which you can probably guess). This company apparently tried to bypass Chinese law and sneak its toxic crops and seeds into the country without proper government oversight, which is technically an international human rights violation, knowing that these genetic poisons would likely be rejected if they had to go through the normal import process for GMOs.

"The deeply pro-GMO old government would not have made such a thing public," said a local Chinese citizen about the new Chinese government's swift action in dealing with the offending imports. "It would have secretly returned the shipments, or in most cases it would not even have inspected shipments that could contain GM ingredients."

China now surpassing US in protecting food supply against genetic contamination

You know the integrity of the American food supply has reached an all-time low when even China is rejecting its offerings. The rest of the world has basically had enough of all this genetic vandalism of food, and yet America continues to take first place in agricultural stupidity, propagating deadly genetic poisons as is they were food - food that virtually nobody else on the planet is willing to eat anymore besides Americans, by the way.

America had better shape up now and begin ending the reign of GMO tyranny within its own borders, or else it will continue to remain the agricultural black sheep, and the embarrassment of the developed world. GMOs are not safe, they are not beneficial, and their only purpose economically is to fill the coffers of those running the industrial agribusiness scam. Worse, GMOs are poisoning humanity on a monumental scale, to the point where future generations may not even be able to have children due to GMO-induced sterility.

"[T]he new government's decisive move to destroy the illegal GMOs is 'progressive, encouraging, and satisfying'," adds GMWatch.org, quoting the words of an insider the site has dubbed Mr. Li. "He regards it as a sign that [the Chinese government] is keeping its promise to work for the people and the nation."
