Global consensus weighing against GMOs as majority of EU nations ban GMO cultivation


GMOs

(NaturalNews) The clock is ticking ever closer towards a much anticipated end for the world's biotech moguls. These corporate criminals are now being forced to watch their entire corrupt business model unravel, as country after country bans the cultivation of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) – a synthetic crop cultivation technology that's been shown scientifically to harm humans, animals and the environment.

European Union (E.U.) standards currently allow certain GMOs to be cultivated within the borders of member countries, but a majority of these member countries have chosen to "opt out" of the program altogether, due to concerns about both safety and necessity, according to reports. And if things keep moving in this direction throughout Europe, there's a good chance it will spill over into U.S. GMO policy as well.

According to GMO-Free Europe, the following countries have banned cultivation of Monsanto's MON 810 genetically-modified maize (corn), which is among the few GMOs that can legally be grown in Europe:

• Austria
• France
• Germany
• Greece
• Hungary
• Italy
• Luxembourg
• Poland
• Romania
• Switzerland

A color-coded map of European countries with national bans or moratoriums on MON810 or other GMOs can be accessed here.

Europeans give resounding NO to GMO cultivation and use; keep our food clean, they demand

Most of Europe remains adamantly opposed to both GMO cultivation and use, with a few exceptions. The only GMOs that typically enter Europe are GMO feeds from North and South America, which are used as animal feed throughout Europe. This means that most conventional meat products sold in Europe are technically GMO, because the animals from which they came were fed GMOs.

Even so, countries throughout Europe are continuing to investigate the supposed merits of GMOs, as parroted by Big Biotech and its allies, and coming up short on sound evidence. As far as they're concerned, GMOs are both unsafe and unnecessary – not to mention the fact that most Europeans are opposed to eating them.

Europe tells genetic butchers to get out; will the U.S. ever follow suit?

Despite massive infiltration of the E.U. power structure over the past decade by biotech interests, these transgenic traitors working behind the scenes to increase their market share, have thus far been unsuccessful in fully penetrating Europe with their genetic poisons. Only a handful of European countries are even suitable for growing any type of commercially approved GMO, and only a select few of these currently do.

The rest have given the proverbial middle finger to the fake food barons trying to seize control of Europe's traditional food production systems, which in many ways are still centered around small-scale family farms that grow heirloom crops the old-fashioned way.

"More than half of the European Union's 28 nations plan to prohibit the cultivation of a group of genetically modified crops awaiting E.U. regulatory approval, marking the first use by individual governments of a new right to go their own way on the planting of biotech foods," reports AgWeb.com.

"Nineteen E.U. countries have demanded that all or part of their territory be shielded from eight pending applications to grow gene-altered crops in the bloc, according to the European Commission."

Meanwhile, in the U.S., Congress is trying to put the fix in on state-level GMO labeling initiatives, contending that they're out of line with the "settled science" on GMOs. American consumers, on the other hand, have overwhelmingly indicated in poll after poll that they want to know what they're eating, and support mandatory GMO labeling.
