(SALEM) Last week, an important development was made public, by the unlikeliest of sources, regarding Consumer Safety of Glyphosate (RoundUp) that is used to control weeds on Genetically Modified Crops. This vital and incredibly relevant information is being kept from the public, regarding the toxic effects of Glyphosate on consumers.

Former GMO supporter and government scientist for the Canadian Government, Dr. Thierry Vrain was the designated spokesperson, whose job it was to assure the Canadian public of the safety of GMO crops.

In a surprise U-turn, China’s Ministry of Agriculture has decided not to continue with a program which developed genetically-modified rice and corn. Some environmentalists say public concerns about GM crops played a key role in the decision.

On August 17, when these permits were up for renewal, the Ministry of Agriculture decided not to extend them. In 2009, the ministry’s Biosafety Committee issued approval certificates to develop the two crops, rice and corn.

(DAYTONA BEACH)  Carin Bondar, a worried but reconciled Vancouver writer, supports the view of the David Suzuki Foundation, from whence the founder and namesake has recently retired, presumably to spend more time with non-GMOs. And sick and tired, I understand, of banging his head against the conservative, anti-tree-hugging  establishment.
