France Takes a Stand Against GM foods - They BAN it

genetically modified foodsPARIS, March 19 (Reuters) - France's top legal authority on Wednesday upheld a government decision to ban commercial use of the only genetically modified (GM) crop grown in the country by rejecting an emergency injunction filed by the pro-GM camp.

France issued decrees banning the use of MON 810 maize seeds in February after a government-appointed committee said it unearthed new evidence of damage GM products could inflict on the environment.

Ecologists and ordinary consumers hailed the ruling, but seedmakers, including MON 810 creator Monsanto, and maize farmers lodged an emergency injunction in an attempt to overturn the ban.

[Rob's Note: why would a fat loss expert be bringing genetically modified food stories to your attention rather than info about exercise or weight loss? because it's all about food really. Messing with what mother nature provided for us is just asking for trouble.]

Rob Coopers Fat burning tips In 1990 Rob weighed 475 pounds and was able to burn almost 300 lbs of fat in just two and a half years. Rob does weight management coaching from his office in Edmonton Alberta Canada. Rob's diet is based on a "System Specific Organic Whole Food" line of foods along with various fat burning, muscle building tips from Tom Venuto. Tom's Philosophy is very similar to Rob's and he's happy to recommend them

"Messing with what mother nature provided for us is just asking for trouble"

Can't argue with that logic.

Good for them! I wish the United States would do the same and also ban hormones in our food as well. I would much rather have high quality tasting food then this bland stuff we are served in our stores. Perhaps this could start a trend in the EU and then spread to the States as well.

Do you realize that most vegetables have been genetically modifed?

Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and many others were derived from cabbage.

Carrots have been modified, their so "natural" color is dark purple, close to black, they were modified to be orange.

Then there avocados, navel oranges, how many different varieties of apples are there??

Corn used to resemble wheat and the list can go on.

Humans have been messing the what mother nature provided for centuries, this is nothing new.

Maybe the US should ban genetically modified food and destroy crops in the fields.

Let starving people die, just don't give them GM food.

In my Opinion what anonymous is referring to is a natural form of cross breeding. There is a HUGE difference between that and what the nasty people here are doing. Instead of cross breeding the US is genetically modifying. Splicing genes from bacteria, animals, I believe even humans, for instance the Human papaloma virus, into the food. Then serving it up to us all. Then they are making the big bucks on health care as WE all need it. Nice huh? I for one have stopped buying it, stopped buying a lot of Organic foods too. As the most high GM'ed crops are soy(there is no such thing as organic soy anymore, if there ever was), Corn(most all GMed), Canola Oil toxic waste, which is rapeseed(considered highly toxic to humans BEFORE GM'ed) which is even more nasty after GM'ing. All GM'ed food is toxic waste made by companies such as Monsanto corp, Bayer(rice toxic), DuPont, Dow Chemical, yummy chemicals in our food, and Syngenta. All of these companies need to lose money for what they have done. So I make sure I buy nothing they make. Harder to do with Monsanto since they make everything from Plastic(highly toxic) and many other things. Since I do not have a blog here I will have to go as another anonymous or as I am known on other sites Empress Selena

Rob- read Mendel in the Kitchen. Awesome book. Will clear up some problems u might have, and will set millions of idiots straight. GM has been happening since the dawn of agriculture. The only difference is that we are more precise with it now. Organic is SOOO inefficient its so stupid to hear ppl say they only buy organic. If the whole world grew organic, approx 3 billion people would die. look it up if u dont believe me. GM is the ONLY way to feed our tremendous population.
