A study published in the Journal of Food and Toxicologyon September 20th, 2012, revealed that rats developed mutations, tumors, kidney and liver problems at an alarming rate when fed with GM corn resistant to Monsanto Roundup Weedkiller and containing approved levels of Roundup. This corn has been approved for consumption about 10 years ago without evidence that it was safe to eat.
In light of this new research, European Parliament members Kartika Liotard and Nikos Chountis are asking Commissioner John Dalli to reexamine GMO policy. Their goals are to withdraw rules that prevent states from banning GMO cultivation on health and environmental grounds, ban imports into the EU of suspect Monsanto products and set new limits on the glyphosphate content on Roundup.
Please sign the petition to urge John Dalli to cooperate with Parliament members and take action to ban dangerous GM products in the EU.
