(NaturalNews) Bayer's genetically modified LibertyLink maize was all set to "cultivate" the farms of Brazil with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), but the tables have turned in court, and now the release has been cancelled. The Federal Appeals Court unanimously decided this latest precedent-setting roadblock to the Biotech war against organic food. You might even call this a legal paradigm. Cultivation control, after all, is what this is all about. This annulled the decision by Brazil's Biosecurity Commission, which had allowed for the release. (http://sustainablepulse.com)

The judge in the case stated that there is a need for studies on the negative impacts of GMOs. He also saw the need for transparency (for general public) of the trade process. Of course, this would expose documentation. Will national regulators now carry out assessment risks of GMOs for all the biome areas of Brazil? Most corporations are too greedy to spare the costs themselves, and they already know what that kind of research turns up, just look at the French scientist Seralini. They only moved to discredit him in "peer" journals. They don't want to draw mainstream attention to THAT! (http://www.naturalnews.com)

Social and economic consequences of GMOs

This precedent-setting case is the paradigm -- the model -- and it is all about protecting future generations. Ten years of polluting Brazil with pesticides and they've had enough. GMOs don't produce the yields that Biotech bragged they would back 20 years ago, so why even take the risk anyhow? Let's face it, farmers know what they're getting into when they sign a hundred documents that say they will use a corporation's seeds, never keep their own, and double or triple the amount and frequency of when they use pesticides on the crops, which are all immune to that particular "contracted" kind.

This is where small- to mid-sized farmers must make the decision not to sacrifice quality and Mother Nature for some quick profits that will actually NEVER come. This is not about cutting corners and making some investment to put back into the farm. This movement is about the social and economic consequences of millions of human beings consistently eating pesticide, herbicide, insecticide or the like. The soil HAS to be given a chance at life. If you kill the soil, you kill all nutrition in food -- period. As of now, no companies in Brazil have conducted risk assessments in all biomes of the national territory.

Brazil says goodbye to transgenic corn!

Bayer CropScience engineered LibertyLink corn to be resistant to their Liberty herbicide. Now, their legal duties to protect the environment have come back to bite them. They simply ignored the studies done back in 2007 on health concerns that were presented to them. Oops. It's not good to ignore judges. They don't like that. Now the commercial release got jammed. This could equate to big losses for Bayer in the near future. Who will they try to fool next?

Brazil doesn't believe that biotech means helping sustain agriculture or the health of their people. The judges there seem to also understand that tampering with vegetable seeds in laboratories and spraying extra pesticide and herbicide on the crops can't be good for human consumption.

How much organic corn is left in the world? Brazil must know. They are helping pave the way for organic farmers around the world who want to step up and save organic corn, among other major staple crops, from extermination and extinction. GMO farms are slowly invading organic farms, so there are traces of GMO contamination across the board -- it's just a matter of how much.

"For certain crops, it is absolutely pervasive," says David Gould, an organic certification specialist. "Virtually all of the seed corn in this country has at least a trace of GMO contamination and often more. Canola is as bad if not worse. Soy is very problematic, too." (http://www.progressive.org)
