Australian Corrupt Leaders Ignore Warnings - For Profit $$$ PostThu Feb 21, 2008 1:00 am  Reply with quote  

Japanese tell Australia again, stay GM-free (20/2/2008)

1.Japanese tell Australia, stay GM free

2.Thank you South Australia!

EXTRACTS: 'We were shocked to hear that your farmers who want to stay GM-free are scared to speak out, under company and agribusiness pressure for GM canola,' said Ms Koketsu of Consumers Union of Japan.

'In Canada, Monsanto and Bayer have also stopped selling GM-free canola seed as patented GM seed is more profitable, so all Canadian canola is GM now.' (item 1)

1.Japanese tell Australia, stay GM free
NEWS MEDIA RELEASE
Victoria, Wednesday February 20 2008

A delegation from the Consumers Union of Japan (CUJ) will visit the Australian Embassy in Tokyo tomorrow (21/2), to ask the new Australian government to ban Genetically Manipulated (GM) canola. CUJ has 1,250 member organisations that represent over 2 million Japanese shoppers.

And in Australia, Michiyo Koketsu and Ryoko Shimizu from CUJ are asking for Australian GM-free canola. At Horsham yesterday, they urged over 200 farmers to continue growing GM-free.

'We were shocked to hear that your farmers who want to stay GM-free are scared to speak out, under company and agribusiness pressure for GM canola,' said Ms Koketsu of Consumers Union of Japan.

'We share your farmers' concerns about being overrun and contaminated by GM canola, and losing markets especially in Japan.

'Feral GM canola is growing all around Japanese ports though we do not even grow canola.

'We need you to keep supplying us with GM-free. Eighteen countries grow GM-free canola (only Canada and the USA grow GM) but Australia is the sole exporter of GM-free canola on world markets.

'We are worried that our clean, green GM-free choice will be taken away.

'Over 90% of Coles and Foodland customers also want GM-free food so we appeal to Australian people and governments to extend the GM canola bans.

'Western Australia, South Australia and Tasmania have listened to their overseas and Australian customers and we are grateful that those states will remain GM-free,' said Ms Ryoko Shimizu of the Policy Research Institute for the Civil Sector, a member of CUJ.

'Our members pay a lot for Australia's GM-free products because we have deep concerns over the health and safety of GM foods.

'We know that some GM foods are unsafe for experimental animals and humans, though most have not been independently tested.

'We want Victoria and New South Wales to extend their GM bans, so the whole of Australia stays GM-free and your wholesome clean, green reputation is kept.

'We know from Percy Schmeiser at the Horsham meeting, and other Canadian farmers, that GM canola contamination can spread nation-wide.

'In Canada, Monsanto and Bayer have also stopped selling GM-free canola seed as patented GM seed is more profitable, so all Canadian canola is GM now.

'GM-free is the way we want to stay and we ask Australians to help us,' Ms Shimizu concludes.

For more comment:
Ryoko Shimizu T: 0412 077 630 or 0011 81-90-6001-0495 (Japanese mobile, int. roaming) After 3pm 03 9347 4500

2.Thank you South Australia!
Consumers Union of Japan, February 19 2008 http://cujtokyo.wordpress.com/2008/02/19/thank-you-south-australia/

Consumers Union of Japan took the initiative to the No! GMO Campaign that started in 1996 as a Japanese group of citizens that were alarmed by the many problems associated with genetically manipulated (GM) food.

We were very encouraged and pleased recently as we received the news that South Australia decided to keep its GM moratorium. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to South Australia for taking this step. We would like to further ask that the strict GM-free policy is permanently maintained, for the sake of both consumers' health and the environment. GM crops should be eliminated, and not accepted.

We strongly request that South Australia makes sure not to let GM canola be cultivated in South Australia now or in the future.

The reason why you need to only eat organics PostThu Feb 21, 2008 1:05 am  Reply with quote  

"Every European gets a dose of GM every day" (19/2/2008)

Mike Mack runs Syngenta. In the Times' piece below, Mack admits Syngenta's retreat in the face of intransigent European opposition to GMOs - 'We don't conduct any GM research in Europe. We took all our GM research to the US years ago.'

Europe's no longer even part of Syngenta's game plan, according to Mack: 'Our financial ambitions are not underpinned by the EU because we cannot see that happening anytime soon.'

But Mack makes an interesting claim - that the proof of the safety of GM foods is there for all to see in Europe, because European livestock, he says, eat imported GM maize and soya - hence, 'Every European gets a dose of GM every day.'

This is a startling admission because up till now the industry has always claimed, as part of its argument that meat, milk and eggs from animals fed on GM crops do not need to be labelled, that consumers are not exposed to GM material by eating food from GM-fed animals. And they could just about get away with such a claim up until 2005 as studies which tried to detect GM DNA in milk, eggs and tissues from GM-fed animals had only detected non-GM DNA from the crops.
http://www.gmwatch.org/archive2.asp?arcid=8490

But more recent scientific evidence shows GM DNA does end up in milk and animal tissues of GM-fed animals, contrary to the assurances from the industry and the likes of the UK's Food Standards Agency. Worse still, at least 13 animal feeding trials now show a range of alarming health effects in animals fed GM: lesions in the gut, toxic effects in body organs, unexplained deaths and stunted growth in their offspring.
http://www.gmwatch.org/archive2.asp?arcid=8490

The European Comission and EU member governments have always said they support consumer choice over GMOs, while surveys consistently show consumers want labels where GM crops have been used in animal feed. With the biotech industry now boasting, 'Every European gets a dose of GM every day', it's time to label.

Syngenta Is Fighting An Ideological Battle For Hearts, Minds And Mouths
Carl Mortished The Times, 14 February 2008 http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/consumer_goods/article3365827.ece

Mike Mack runs Syngenta, one of Europe's leading businesses, but in one respect he has almost given up hope on the Continent. Europe has turned its back on a technology that some believe will be essential for feeding the world in the 21st century.

He runs a Swiss company that is a hybrid of long-established European businesses of top vintage. Behind Syngenta are Novartis and Astra-Zeneca, the pharmaceutical giants. Their parents were equally distinguished: respectively Ciba and Sandoz, of Switzerland, and ICI, once Britain's leading industrial company.

ICI has disappeared, absorbed by Akzo Nobel. The British chemical giant was in decline for a long time, but it did have a seeds business. That was shed with the demerger of Zeneca in 1994 and in 1996 Zeneca brought the first genetically modified tomato to the market place: a tomato puree called Flavr Savr.

It was clearly identified as GM and it was an instant consumer success, but it did not last long, suffering an intense and relentless assault, including lawsuits, from opponents of the technology.

Mr Mack says that GM seeds are only 5 per cent of sales, while European crop protection - herbicides and fungicides is a huge business, serving an enormous agricultural market. However, it is the GM seeds that will grow fast. They account for half of an $800 million (GBP407 million) research budget. Within five years, he expects GM technology to represent 10 to 11 per cent of the company's revenues. Mr Mack is an American, but the future, as he sees it, is in Asia and in the Americas. The genetic technology has left Europe to be developed on more fertile soil, he argues.

He said: 'We don't conduct any GM research in Europe. We took all our GM research to the US years ago. Our financial ambitions are not underpinned by the EU because we cannot see that happening anytime soon. We are looking to the US, to Canada, to Latin America, primarily Brazil and Argentina and we are looking to Asia, primarily China.'

More research money is going into China and seed development stations are popping up in Brazil. Still, the EU refuses to approve Syngenta's seeds, despite repeated clearances from the European Food Safety Authority.

It is an ideological battle about who should carry the burden of proof: must opponents show that GM is dangerous or must Syngenta prove it is safe?

For Mr Mack, the proof is obvious, because livestock eat imported GM maize and soya: 'Every European gets a dose of GM every day.'

The Syngenta chief was born in Detroit. His father sewed upholstery on a Ford Motor assembly line and he jokes that until he arrived at Syngenta, he believed that corn grew out of a can. His job now is to convince people that it can grow in a test tube and he thinks that Europeans will wake up to the cost of ignoring technology.

He said: 'When I go to Brazil or the United States, how is it that food is so much more affordable? When people look at the meat counter, they are going to marvel at the price of meat. They are going to have less of it and they are not going to know the truth. My hypothesis is that we lack the political will to tell the truth.'

Nice script. Purely for the benefit of his funders.

For those of you that need a little education about GM Food, and Canadian Canola Monsanto patented seeds, you can watch "The Future of Food" online with Netflix if you have an account. It is so wrong what Monsanto is doing to Farmers and nature!
