Scientists: Italy’s GMO Rules Minimize Competition

A column published at the Genetic Literacy Project by two Italian scientists outlines a serious problem their country faces regarding crop cultivation and farming. Presently, European Union and Italian rules restrict growing and cultivating genetically modified crops.

But importers are enjoying a boom in business since the only alternate for Europe is to import produce and a lot of it is genetically modified. As the below video points out, this problem not only affects other European countries, but the regulations on GMO’s in Europe were also advocated by environmentalists too.

Thankfully, there may be some relief on the horizon. One way to kill off human beings is to restrict the food supply since the lack of food makes starvation more likely.
