Brazil About to Refuse ALL Imports of U.S.- Grown Genetically-Modified Crops

(Organic & Healthy) Brazil About to Refuse ALL Imports of U.S.- Grown Genetically-Modified Crops:

As we see more and more nations waking up to the hazards of genetically modified food, Brazil are the latest country to impose a ban on importing Monsanto’s GM grown crops.

Brazil are the latest country in a long line that are refusing GM crops to be imported into the country, highlighting the awakening that is occurring around GM crops.

In the U.S. is it hard to buy almost anything in a package from a supermarket, as around 80% of all the products on the shelves contain GM ingredients.

 This move will no doubt come as a blow to Monsanto, who are increasingly being shut out of country’s food programs. As they face increased opposition they are being forced to resort to underhand deeds to continue their previous success.

The Bloomberg article points out, “In recent years, some of the largest commodity trading companies have refused to take certain GMO crops from farmers because the seeds used hadn’t received a full array of global approvals, something that can lead to holdups at ports or even the rejection of entire cargoes.”

Brazil’s farmers have chosen to opt out of feeding their chickens GM corn, and other countries have followed suit.

Brazil is actually the second largest grower of GM corn, but the fact that their farmers are refusing to use it shows they care more about the health of their chickens, and subsequent people down the line than they do about profits.

In a similar anti-GM protest, Female Members of the Landless Worker’s Movement (MST) recently broke into a São Paulo State lab and destroyed millions of samples of GM prototypes that contained a carcinogenic pesticide.

The reasons for banning GM crops are transparent, a Seralini study says that the very first GM crop, introduced in 1996, was highly toxic to farm animals over the long-term.
Seralini notes problems such as “partial paralysis (paresis) accompanied by great fatigue, and problems in the kidneys and mucosal membranes in the animals, followed by death in 10% of cases,” all from feeding the animals GM crops like corn, soy, and alfalfa. GM maize such as Monsanto’s Bt variety were found to be the most toxic of all.

Brazil’s farmers are even joining a growing, international resistance against cultivating GM seed. Russia have also recently banned all U.S. corn and soy imports due to possible GM contamination. There are nineteen countries in the EU that have also banned GM crops.
