Friday, September 25, 2015 - Russia has just announced a total ban on the cultivation of GMO crops.
At an international conference on biotechnology in the Russian city of Kirov, Deputy PM Arkady Dvorkovic said, “As far as genetically-modified organisms are concerned, we have made the decision not to use any GMO in food productions.”
According to official statistics, the share of GMO in the Russian food industry has declined from 12 percent to just 0.01 percent over the past 10 years, and currently there are just 57 registered food products containing GMO in the country. The law ordering obligatory state registration of GMO products that might contact with the environment will come into force in mid-2017.
This puts Russia in a powerful position of producing nearly 100% non-GMO foods for both domestic consumption and export. Most consumers around the world, when given a choice, prefer to eat non-GMO foods.
Meanwhile, back in the United States, Monsanto's corruption has infiltrated every corner of U.S. academia, and government regulators and corporate-controlled media are trying desperately to block all GMO food labeling in order to keep consumers in the dark about what they're eating. Our population has been turned into a massive GMO experiment with us as the lab rats.
