Russians are content to let Westerners be the guinea pigs for GMOs
(NaturalNews) The future of agriculture in Russia won’t involve genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), says the country’s Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. In order to preserve the quality and integrity of its food supply, Russia plans to stay with organic growing methods that protect the soil and boost yields naturally, a move that Dvorkovich says will make his country’s food among the “cleanest in the world.”
Meanwhile, Russia is leading the way in ridding its land of toxic poisons, stressing the need for agricultural policies that take a precautionary approach to controversial modalities like biotechnology that involve artificial gene splicing and toxic pesticides.
The Vice President of Russia’s National Association for Genetic Safety, Irina Ermakova, had this to say recently about the issue:
“It has been proven that not only in Russia, but also in many other countries in the world, GMOs are dangerous.
Consumption and use of GMOs obtained in such way can lead to tumors, cancers and obesity among animals.”
