Tesco drops 11-year ban on eggs from
chickens fed on GM soya diet as it blames farmers and
suppliers for the decision
Daily Fail not quite failing (for once):
(Oh geeez! Look at the name of the article author! All it needs is a
"y" on the end)
Peter Melchett is policy director at the
Soil Association, which supports organic farming.
He accused Tesco of ignoring the wishes of customers and said it
was simply wrong to claim it was difficult to get non-GM feed.
‘Tesco are ignoring the overwhelming majority of the British
people,’ he said. ‘Shamefully, Tesco are planning to keep their
use of GM feed secret from their customers.’
He added: ‘Tesco are also wrong about the availability of non-GM
animal feed. They have swallowed the line being pedalled by
multi-national, industrial farming companies that non-GM feed is
getting scarcer. In fact, in Brazil alone, there is enough
non-GM animal feed to supply the whole of Europe.’
The Food Standards Agency says that the DNA
from GM soya is not present in the meat of animals fed on it,
nor in products such as eggs or milk.
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? I don't think I've ever read anything MORE STUPID
in my entire life!!!!!!
YOU ARE .... WHAT YOU EAT, DRINK AND BREATHE.
What else ... do you think ... your body is??????????????????
But critics claim scientists have shown that
fragments of genetically modified DNA, at least, are present in
the resulting food.
Morrisons and Asda have already dropped
their own bans on GM feed. Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s
are still refusing to use GM for their chickens.
I guess we need to support Marks & Sparks & Sainsbury's.
