Let it not be said that a governing entity cannot realize a big mistake that it is about to make despite its own propaganda machine and bloody-mindedness.
Rife with profits, poisons, and callousness when it comes to the good of the people, GM crops get a second thought as the center of global governance administration, the European Commission take a moratorium on their recent approval of GM crops.
The reason given is to thrash out an agreement with EU member states. Both France and Hungary have banned the contaminant, while contradictory policies in Poland tussle between the senate and the people.
Eight countries — Austria, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Luxembourg and Poland — have adopted provisions that allow them to block the cultivation of GM crops on their territory.
However, a more damning factor at play is that after 20 years of approval, regulatory agency, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has discovered that GM crops contain material that is not fit for human consumption! After 20 years of discrediting all external reports one of their own has discovered a nail in the coffin.
Encoded within GMOs foreign DNA has been found – a viral gene called Gene VI. Discovered by Podevin and du Jardin, they found 86 different insertions of foreign DNA applied in commonly used GM crops like:
- Roundup Ready soybeans (40-3-2)
- MON810 maize
- NK603 maize
These ‘in-built’ pesticides only serve to act on pants in a manner that compromises the immunity of plants, hence any benefit we as humans would get from the immunity of pants is as compromised. They have reduced the immunity, and fertility, of plants, the environment and human health through consumption. They have as increased vulnerability to other infections, and compromised the global food supply by reducing the bee population.
Importation and planting approvals must be revoked. Latham and Wilson point out the lack of regulation with mounting reports from farmers and health officials.
“Not one country has carried through on promises to officially and scientifically monitor any hazardous consequences of GMOs.”
Some 50 different genetically modified crops for animal consumption have been approved for use in the EU, but who consumes the animals!
Latham and Wilson refer to a recent report that demonstrates Gene VI to make plants highly susceptible to a bacterial pathogen (Love et al. 2012). Gene VI has also been found to disable RNA, to cause growth deformities, and reduce fertility.
