Nations are starting to ban GMO crops around the world in display of health freedom. Hungary is getting international recognition for taking a bold stand against biotech mega Monsanto for destroying 1000 acres of Monsanto maize that was contaminated with genetically modified crops. Genetically modified seeds are banned in Hungary, so when the government regulator discovered that this violation was broken- the result was an extreme environmental consequence. The concern is that this giant cooperation is threatening the overall genetic integrity of the environment as well as of human kind.

Genetically modified ingredients are so widespread among nations that it will be extremely difficult for Hungary and other countries to eliminate products containing GMOs. However, this no-nonsense act that Hungary’s government took is a good place to start. There is an increasing consensus among consumers worldwide that they want safe, local, organic fresh food and that they want the environment and wildlife to be protected.

Time is of essence. I have read that come 2013, most rice will be GMO'd. Not sure where I read that- Islander, did you post that on FB?

Not sure whether I posted it or if so, where...I'm all over the place and I knew this, but can't say where it originated or appeared. I read stuff daily from maybe 30 sources....

And the original headline on that article (if you checked the source) is way too ambitious & sensational.
