Russia is set to become the world’s largest supplier of naturally grown organic foods, after taking a stand against genetically-engineered fake-food seeds last summer, saying that it has ‘chosen a different path.’
The decision is based on healthy skepticism as Russia has conclusively proved that GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) have not been proven safe for long-term consumption.
The country voiced concerns about the effect of artificial foods and their associated pesticides have on the environment, which often cause irreversible damage to Earth’s valuable resources. Russia has set itself apart from many other profit-nosed nations through its rejection of modified foods. In theory and practice, the Russian Federation has proved conclusively that laboratory-based foods are not in fact required for humans to survive, as the biotech industry will have people believe.
“Not only can we ourselves eat it (natural foods), but also taking into account our land and water, which is particularly important, resources Russia could become the world’s largest supplier of healthy, environmentally friendly, high-quality food that has long been missing in some western producers,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin. Russia actually values its resources; “Especially as the demand on the global market for such products is growing,” he added.
Organic food sales more than tripled between 2004 and 2014, growing from $11.6 billion in sales to nearly $36 billion, according to the Organic Trade Association. Globally, organic food and drink sales are expected to reach $104.5 billion, up from just $57.2 billion in 2010.
The momentum behind consumer demand for cleaner, healthier food is unstoppable. GMO based genetically modified fake-foods does not live up to the propaganda. They harm the environment and we simply don’t know the health consequences of eating them. The biotech industries have failed to reverse negative public opinion about GMOs. There is just far too much science in support of public disquiet about modified food.
Russia refuses to import GMO based fake foods. However, in the profit-driven corporate West, there is a need to be diligent when shopping to avoid Frankenstein foods.
“Unlike the U.S., Russia has deep concerns about the safety of bio-perverse foodstuffs and has chosen to implement an extended moratorium on their use as it looks to other, safer technologies that don’t come with the risk of birth defects, endocrine disruption, and cancer,” reported Natural News.
“Russia prosecutes those who violate its natural food production protocols and pledges to produce the cleanest food in the world,” Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told the audience at the International Economic Forum in St. Petersburg that the nation will not use these technologies to increase agricultural yields, continuing on Putin’s declaration to protect Russians from GMOs.
He (Putin) isn’t afraid to hold those caught breaking the law accountable either. Food manufacturers implicated in the unclear labelling of food containing GMO could face fines, according to an article appearing in the January 2016 edition of Common Ground magazine.
In January 2015 Putin signed the Russian Federation Code of Administrative Offences into law, including a new article establishing liability for the violation of mandatory requirements for the labelling of food products that contain GMO. The bill which was submitted by the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Protection and Welfare (Rospotrebnadzor) imposes fines for vague or unclear labelling on food products containing genetically modified ingredients,” reported Common Ground. As a result, Russian food products will be “one of the cleanest in the world,” said Dvorkovich.
Russia’s landmass is large enough to produce organic food safely and cleanly without the need for carcinogenic herbicides such as Roundup. Made by Monsanto, the world’s largest seed provider, Roundup’s primary ingredient is glyphosate; a chemical deemed probably carcinogenic by the World Health Organization last year.
Around 2.6 billion pounds of this “probably” carcinogenic chemical has been sprayed on U.S. crops over the last two decades – human health and environmental hazard you won’t stumble across in Russia. (SOURCES: CommonGround.ca., https://www.ota.com, Statista.com/, NaturalNews.com
