If you read the BBC reports, you will find that occasionally, one still slips through.

Man you guys have an excuse for everything don't you?

You think just because you post this BS in a Green Living forum that everyone is so gullible they will just bob their heads in agreement?

I don't think there is anyone here who disagrees with wanting GMO foods to be identified (labeled) as such, but the rest of the conspiracy delusion you are pushing?

Give it a break...

if these reports are suppressed, how do you know of their existence?

Farmers in France, by far the largest EU grains producer and exporter, fear the flight of researchers will have major consequences in the long run.

"All researchers are now abroad. This is an intolerable situation that does not allow us to prepare for the future," Guy Vasseur, chairman of the French Chambers of Agriculture, said.

"Some say we have to wait for second-generation GMOs. But when you miss the first step, you miss the second, and you have far less chances to be in the following ones," he added.

French farm group AGPM provided data on the results of using MON810 maize on over 22,000 hectares in 2007, the year before France imposed its moratorium. The GMO strain prevented an average loss in yields from pests of 0.5 metric tons per hectare, an advantage worth about 100 euros per hectare, it found.

This included the additional cost of 35 to 40 euros per hectare for GMO seeds over conventional ones, AGPM Deputy Director Cedric Poeydomenge said.

MON810 helped farmers save 8,800 liters of pesticide and 30,000 liters of fuel to spread it, AGPM said.

Seems monsato can take one developing country off their christmas card list...


Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar. Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned

Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields

Bet folks can confirm this easily enough, huh?

SOrry monsanto, but your love affair with France may be over as the French are asking for a divorce..


France originally banned the growing of the genetically modified corn, known as MON810, in 2008. The strain is currently the only GM crop approved for planting in the European Union, and has been targeted as a serious threat to the environment. The French government said back in November, following the ruling against the attempted ban by the highest court, that it would look at all ways possible to suspend GM planting. Perhaps they have finally found a viable strategy.

Getting desperate when you get down to falling back on somebody "urging" something...

I wonder how many "urges" the EU receives in a year....

And 1 country out of 196 burned their GM corn fields.... Oh well, I feel sorry for their farmers...
