    The European Union and the United States have strong disagreements over the EU’s regulation of genetically modified food. The US claims these regulations violate free trade agreements, the EU counter-position is that free trade is not truly free without informed consent.

      You can thank George Bush Sr. for the nondisclosure granted to monsanto! It was his administration that snuck that by consumers! It will be a relief when the president’s office no longer includes gmo salesperson under responsibilities!

  2. Jonathan Drake also on facebook says:

    All GMO’s, genetically modified foods MUST BE BANNED PERMANENTLY worldwide! The devastating health effects which are following with horrible results will and are coming out in greater details ever imagined. The long term effects are sterilization, cellular and DNA damage and many other serious health and diseases created for mass depopulation under conspiratorial profiteering. There is zero benefit to GMO’s only reasons for food control and mass profiting. IT MUST BE STOPPED at all levels!
