gmorice 210x131 China Adds Genetically Modified Rice to the List of Rejected GMOs

As awareness of genetically modified food and the dangers associated increase, actions are being taken to eliminate the issue entirely. With countries destroying their GMO crops, scientists showing the facts, and individuals voicing their discontent on the matter, there is a large and growing contingent across countries that are taking action to preserve the integrity of our food supply. China is the latest nation to take a stand against GMO crops, rejecting genetically modified rice.

China Rejects Genetically Modified Rice

China recently suspended the distribution of genetically modified rice within its commercial food supplies.

Rice, being perhaps the most common and prominently used food within Chinese diet makes its safety and reliability very significant. Acting as a staple food for over 1.3 billion Chinese people, any compromise to the integrity of their food supply should be accordingly assessed and acted against based upon the interests of the population.

This action helps to preserve the sovereignty and safety of their food supply, something that largely must still be addressed in our own country. In the United States GMO foods are not only accepted by loose regulation standards, but are not even labeled appropriately.

The dangers of GMO foods are so great that they are still not — and may never be — fully assessable. With a large number of documented negative effects on its consumers, GMO foods are a highly dangerous threat to individual health alone.

If this weren’t enough, genetically engineered crops actually threaten the integrity of the food supply altogether by devastating the environment with powerful superweeds and mutant bugs. The nature of genetic engineering is so volatile that unless properly handled, the integrity of the entire world food supply could be ruined. No wonder China added genetically modified rice to the GMO rejection list.

As such, any form of action that a government takes to prevent or eliminate GMOs from the equation is significant. Reassessing the nature and scale of the threat in light of new evidence should compel even more action in even more locations around the world.

    GMO's in China

    Chinese science moving ahead at a very rapid rate, begs the question: What do Chinese scientists know that : 1) we are not being told. 2) we cannot understand. 3) proves American GMO's inferior or more dangerous to Asian GMO's? Remember : China is not trying to satisfy international plutocrats, investing for highest ROI possible, using vulture capitalists as goons to sell either their seeds or weed-killers to farmers: Hence: they have entirely different motives, entirely different aims and goals. ( a very different paradigm all-together) In fact: Chinese commonly use humanure, as do the French in France for garden fertilizers, illustrating one large difference. To illustrate another, composting is common the world over, save for in the U.S.A. where chemical fertilizers are the favored choice? Chinese gardeners serve a very different clientele – with many fruits and veggies hardly recognized in the U.S. let alone considered "food" in the U.S. Hubris and xenophobia on the part of the Americans, blinkers them from Chinese realities, in fact, Americans feel they must "Americanize" even ancient, proven life supporting methodologies around this world, even of civilizations that have survived well long before the Americans ever existed? Very strange. GMO's from the U.S. may prove to be very destructive to the civilized order of other societies, and hardly acceptable for that reason alone.

      GMO's are a heath threat to all humans and animals of this world. Our bodies cannot handle the FAKE foods/GM foods (seeds) that Monsanto is pushing on farmers around the world. Food is not made to be genetically modified and it should not be available year round. In order to keep healthy one should consider eating seasonal foods and organically grown foods and avoid GM foods which are unhealthy and can ultimately cause health problems down the line. I do believe that more and more people are becoming aware of this issue and if we all take a stand against GMO foods we will win this battle against unhealthy products/ foods that are being distributed around the world.

        I appreciate your comments on GMO.You are right.Monsanto and its pusher Dupont are expanding their seeds in China.Its consequences can not be predicted. Help me ! Help China! keep in touch with me.

        Thank you.

    also be aware that so called NON gmo ie " Clearfield "plants ARE mofified by either chemicals or radiation, they avoid the GMO label by not actually inserting genes just causing mutations by other means. but if its glyphosate resistant it Aint natural.

    oh unless its a mutated weed:-)

    it really should be cause to wonder what?? China knows or suspects?? as their record on food safety is face it, somewhat lax.

    Need I say more?

    Eventually this will cause random genetic expression from forced evolution and the plants DNA will respond in a way deemed necessary for its own survival. We are destroying the food supply for the planet and hence committing suicide. Instead of spending all this money trying in vain to control every aspect of our planet why don't we use that energy to traverse the planets in the solar system? What a waste these years since world war two ended have been.

      So instead of making banking cartels filthy rich and supporting the Zionist dream of one-world government ruled by the Anti-Christ, you are suggesting we should have taken our evil to some far away galaxy and destroyed some other hapless planet? Why don't we just fix the one we are on now? Let's vote for Ron Paul and end the FED. Then America can pay off its debts and work on its space program. And we can fly a bunch of nuns and buddhists to distant lands. When the arrive the alien species will question our strength and fly back to Earth and enslave us all. Sounds like a plan. I'm in. I'd much rather have alien slave masters than Zionist ones anyday.

      • Bilbo Baggins

        There already here. Who do you think controls the Zionist?

        • Gandolf

          Bilbo,

          What proof can you provide to back up your statement of fact?

          Unless you can provide this, it's just another opinion…

          ps. GMO's are part of a depopulation plan. (reference Bill Gates connection with Monsanto Group (private corp) and the underground seed bank called Svalbard, in Norway)

        You can vote for Ron Paul all you want but since they rig the votes (as well as in the primaries) it doesn't matter how many people vote for him because if the criminal elite do not want him to win he will not win.

        Why else do you think they have "blackbox" voting and in the one state where the primary didn't use electronic voting they decided to hold the count in a "secret location".

        The whole system is a sham and a fraud.

        The people are only allowed the illusion of actually having a say in who their "leaders" are.

    You know it's bad when even China rejects GMOs..

      true

    • Mr. BT

      I know everything that makes your opinion seem true is something you want to believe, but don’t be naive folks. The Chinese government is ruthless, technologically sophisticated, and runs a closed society which is not responsive to regulation or democratic dialog. Let me spell it out for you all: the reality is that they oppose GMO products from other countries for trade advantage. They are making, planting and selling loads of their own GM crops (which are probably in all the "organic" products on our grocery shelves), and there is no independent regulation of their practices. Enjoy.
