Hungary Bans GMO Crops. Other Countries Follow Suit.

By on June 5, 2015

This is one time when the good old US of A needs to get on board and ban GMOs.  It just makes sense.  Europe is way ahead of us on this scene.  But we can learn. It will save our children.  It will save our planet.  Let’s do it.

It’s Time to Get Rid of the GMOs

The EU recently decided to allow member states to ban genetically modified organisms. Now, it seems that Hungary might be the first country to ban the cultivation of these GMO crops!

We congratulate Hungary for ensuring that families have access to an untainted, non-GMO food supply.

Let’s do the same!

    I fully agree with say NO to GMO’s! And the fact that Hungary continues its ban on the importation of genetically modified corn and the planting of GMO seeds

    is good response to attempts of such biotech giants as Monsanto to grow volume of GMO crops in neighboring Ukraine with the aim to turn it into their major exporter for the EU then

    If Hungary, one of the region’s biggest grain producers, deals successfully with so difficult task, the dream of GMO-Free Europe will pass from a myth
