GE – ‘palpable tumours’ and ‘monster weeds’

by Steffan Browning

I wish these words were exaggeration, but they’re not. Both are terms used in reports I have read this morning.

There’s new evidence just released that Roundup Ready corn causes the growth of tumours and death in a long term feeding study.

On top of that there is this report that because of the use of this corn in the US since the 1990’s they now suffer from weeds that are so strong “that even spraying them with 24 times the recommended dose of Roundup fails to kill them”.

GE and overexposure of chemicals are inseparable bedfellows.

My Members Bill to put a moratorium on the release of GE in New Zealand didn’t get drawn out of the ballot today but I am hoping it will soon so that we can make it law and put a stop to this GE madness.
