    GMO ban in Peru (important for americans)

    If not familiar with GMO; It's Genetically Engineered Foods that hold many long-term dangers when consumed.

    I think this topic is pretty important for everyone of us, since it targets the world-wide govt. forced spread of GMO's.
    Especially in America, GMO is implied in a lot of organic food distribution.. thus the reason I share this with NB

    I hope I won't bore you with this topic -_-




    Peru Passes Monumental Ten Year Ban on Genetically Engineered Foods
    Alternative World News Network

    In a massive blow to multinational agribiz corporations such as Monsanto, Bayer, and Dow, Peru has officially passed a law banning genetically modified ingredients anywhere within the country for a full decade before coming up for another review. Peru’s Plenary Session of the Congress made the decision 3 years after the decree was written despite previous governmental pushes for GM legalization due largely to the pressure from farmers that together form the Parque de la Papa in Cusco, a farming community of 6,000 people that represent six communities. They worry the introduction of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) will compromise the native species of Peru, such as the giant white corn, purple corn and, of course, the famous species of Peruvian potatoes. Anibal Huerta, President of Peru’s Agrarian Commission, said the ban was needed to prevent the ”danger that can arise from the use of biotechnology.”

    While the ban will curb the planting and importation of GMOs in the country, a test conducted by the Peruvian Association of Consumers and Users (ASPEC) at the time of the ban’s implementation found that 77 percent of supermarket products tested contained GM contaminants.

    Of course they are banned. Why do you think people get cancer more often now? The air you breath is contaminated and the food you eat is as well along with the water.
