Putting politics over authentic science may not produce viable results in the long run – US plant breeder scientific testimony before the National Academy of Sciences review of genetically engineered plants indicated American plant breeders are already having a problem maintaining pure nonGMO infiltrated breeding stock needed for GMO crop production.

However, this is not an anti-GMO stance, it is a stance that adheres to the precautionary principle and is in line with over 30 other countriesaround the world.The Russian Government managed to stand strong in the face of increasing pressure from U.S. biotech companies and they also managed to see through the Russian pro-GMO forces’ misleading claims and pseudoscience. ” To continue reading click here
