(NaturalNews) Outrage erupted in the health world after China's Ministry of Education recently announced that it does not serve genetically modified organisms (GMOs) to diners at its cafeteria. GMWatch.org and others report that the government agency has a sign currently posted at the doorway of its cafeteria stating that GMOs are not served to government employees or members of the public who might visit the facility, and yet these same transgenic derivatives continue to be served to China's public schoolchildren.

The sign, which clearly states that the safety profile of GMOs is questionable at best, was designed to dispel fears about the inadvertent consumption of unlabeled GMOs in the cafeteria. With no verifiable or legitimate consensus on whether or not GMOs are safe for the environment, let alone human consumption, the government agency has chosen to take the precautionary approach by eliminating them altogether in the best interests of government employees and others who dine at the canteen.

"The issue of whether GM food is harmful to human health is currently without consensus within academia," reads an English translation of the sign, which you can view here. "To eliminate the concerns of diners, and to assure the safety and health of our staff members, our Ministry of Education Office Canteen temporarily will not use food oil containing GM ingredients and GM food materials. Please enjoy your food without any such concern."

Ministry of Education says GMOs are too risky for government workers but safe for schoolchildren

This position would be laudable if it applied across the board to every institution in China. But according to reports, public schoolchildren in China are still being subjected to GMOs on a regular basis, in large part due to efforts by China's Ministry of Agriculture to thwart the work of parents and others who are trying to preserve the quality and integrity of cafeteria food served to China's most vulnerable segment of society.

"They are still serving GM food in school cafeterias in China," writes Nancy Swanson for Examiner.com about the issue. "Bans on GM food in school cafeterias were blocked by the Chinese [Ministry] of Agriculture, which does not serve GM food in [its] own kindergarten. And now the Chinese Ministry of Education proudly proclaims that they do not serve GM food in their office canteen so that we can enjoy eating there without concern."

Ministry of Finance also bars GMOs, despite their continued use in education

Similar sentiments regarding the long-term safety of GMOs are felt by China's Ministry of Finance as well. The agency recently declared a GMO-free policy of its own, bringing to light the host of food safety problems that already plagues China and the need to avoid causing any more by secretly slipping untested transgenic additives into the food supply.

"[T]he basis of a nation is the people," stated Ministry of Finance minister assistant Liu Hong-wei during a recent series of special meetings on strengthening food and drug safety in China. "[P]eople treat food like heaven, with safety as top priority," he added, noting that "the health of staff members is more important than anything, [and] the importance of food safety carries a heavier weight than the Taishan mountain."

This same policy should, of course, apply to everyone in China, including young children and members of the general public. But apparently a similar standard of corruption exists in China as it does in the U.S., where corporate influence trumps public opinion, resulting in lies, double standards and, in the case of GMOs, widespread environmental pollution and human illness.
