In the world of genetically modified foods, it is rare to find a country or nation that has not been over-run with genetic contamination. In the United States, the vast majority of all corn and soy is either intentionally engineered or has been contaminated. Countless small farmers have gone bankrupt due to contamination of their corn crops and the subsequent lawsuits from Monsanto that quickly follow. Large parts of Mexico continue to lose family heirloom varieties due to passing trucks dropping GE kernals on the sides of roads or pollen blowing in the wind from adjacent GMO fields.
But there are a few safe(r) havens for quality food. Germany is one of the leaders in this field, banning or requiring labeling on GMO products; the UK – only due to consumer demand and a grassroots effort – requires labeling; but now Peru joins that crowd. Peru’s Plenary Session of Congress enacted a ten-year moratorium on genetically modified crops in open defiance to the previous government administration’s pushes for legalization and embracement of GMOs.
Sadly, Peru’s neighbor, Brazil, has welcomed genetically modified foods with open arms, leading to scores of GMO crops being distributed worldwide.
