Hungarians Just Destroyed All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields...


Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar.

Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. In a similar stance against GM ingredients, Peru has also passed a 10 year ban on GM foods…

“Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been ground with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary, deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said.

The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added.

Unlike several EU members, GMO seeds are banned in Hungary. The checks will continue despite the fact that seek traders are obliged to make sure that their products are GMO free, Bognar said. During the investigation, controllers have found Pioneer Monsanto products among the seeds planted…

The free movement of goods within the EU means that authorities will not investigate how the seeds arrived in Hungary, but they will check where the goods can be found, Bognar said. Regional public radio reported that the two biggest international seed producing companies are affected in the matter and GMO seeds could have been sown on up to the thousands of hectares in the country.

Most of the local farmers have complained since they just discovered they were using GMO seeds.” said globalresearch.ca

As of May 2015, Hungary had not responded to the new EU legislation making GMOs legal in all countries unless they specifically opt out. Germany looks like they may opt out. Scotland has opted out within the UK (via UpRiser – Image Credit: Claude Renault).

I worry about the effect that gmo crops may be having on my honeybees. I can only hope that where I live the local farmers are not planting it, but I see a lot of those signs identifying the seed that is used on that particular acreage.

Reply

    That’s a concern a lot of people have. I’ve heard a certain mite has been responsible for a lot of Colony Collapse Disorder (I think that’s what it’s called.) I’ve also heard honeybee populations are starting to come back.

    Reply

    Hi Karen, you’re referring to the varroa mite and the tracheal mite. The varroa mite, upon inspection, looks like a round disc on the bees body, the scale would be like a frisbee size mite on a human body, but they can be controlled and usually if the hive is healthy, they can ward off an infestation. The trachea mite is so small that it can’t be seen but it resides in the bees windpipe and slowly sucks the life out of them, but again, it can be controlled. The cause of Colony Collapse Disorder however, has not been identified to date but a lot of beekeepers believe it is due to GMO seed which has a built-in pesticide genetically bred into the seed (systemically) and some think that it causes a sort of “bees alzheimers” effect whereas the bee cannot find her way back to the hive and eventually perishes out in the field. As far as bees coming back…with the help of social media and mainstream media, the word is getting out on the effects that monoculture farming has on the honeybee, the effects of gmo seed, overuse of pesticides, and much more, yes, the incredible honeybee, and also other variety of bees are gaining in number and hopefully, with more people keeping bees, will return to the numbers of 30 years ago.

    Conor O’Neil BS. GMO is about being able to patent food and the plants that are used to create medicine. Companies like Monsanto will then own the rights to the world’s food. Think people are going hungry now? You ain’t seen NOTHING yet. Bees are dying (and that is serious shit), people are dying (it’s not an outbreak of Zika that’s killing babies, it’s glyphosphates in insecticides such as Roundup – research it), and autoimmune diseases and cancer are going through the roof. GMO is a huge problem for us all – even leaving aside the obvious issues with the quality of the food. Do you want a few huge corporations owning the rights to every food we grow? Because that’s what’s happening right now.

doing away with Monsanto should be paramount

Reply

Monsanto if you want to be against their seed rights that’s one thing but GMOs are perfectly safe. Look up what corn originally looked like. We have modified it’s genes we just do it a better way people are scared of now.

Your body automatically detoxes itself every time you eat! Takes what what it needs or extra calories to save later if available and spits whatever else out. That’s why diet sodas can taste sweet without calories. Your body can’t digest it. So even if (and there is not) there was something inedible about GMO food your body would just rid itself of it or if it was toxic make itself sick.

Reply

    To answer the point raised Bob Mhidden, YES, man has been selecting superior traits in crop in order to increase yields and disease resistance, BUT, only Monsanto manipulates the seeds genetic make up to make it resistant to chemicals, mainly Round-up, so that they can blanket spray crops for weeds without killing the crop. This is vastly different to natural selection. So eat your GM modified grains because as sure as can be, that crop has been sprayed with Round-up and you will be ingesting that along with your cereal. …..Are you a doctor? obviously not or you would know that the body cannot detox itself every time we eat! Try detoxing from any poison added to your food! Many chemicals/toxins are deadly, many such toxins occur naturally and are in some mushrooms, toadstools, unripe potatoes, etc. and they will kill you quite quickly. We know that many people have allergies to some chemicals and if the crop is non GM then they are usually safe, but, are never safe if GM crops are used.

    Raymond Fuller Monsanto and GMO’s are not the same thing. One is a for-profit corporation the other is a scientific process. I find it perplexing that the worldwide scientific consensus on global warming and the safety of GMO’s is relatively equal yet so many people accept the first because they trust science but allow popular opinion, denying science, to reject the latter.

    What about this, quote: “Monsanto never has and has committed it never will sue if our patented seed or traits are found in a farmer’s field as a result of inadvertent means,” said Kyle McClain, the Monsanto’s chief litigation counsel, according to Reuters. …………………That is a load of codswallop as I clearly remember cases here in Oz where farmers have been taken to court for that very reason. Mostly it comes down to your best friend and neighbour, who goes GM, that YOU have to take to court to get compensation for your contaminated crop which obviously leads to conflict. Monsanto may not be directly involved, but the are certainly morally irresponsible when it come to pushing their tainted products onto the open market. As to the court outcome in the US, money talks and Monsanto have plenty to splash around.

    Raymond Fuller , not to mention Monsanto has spent decades installing their people into our government and basically owning control of any legislation and law pertaining to agriculture in this country.

    GMO stands for genetically modified organism. Parts of the DNA of one organism are inserted into the DNA of a different organism, thereby creating a new organism. That in essence is all it is quite a simple concept really I would have thought?

    Reply

    Yeah, not really inserting a gene into another. We did this with dogs, we like an attribute a dog has we breed this dog with another and the pups that have this attribute we continue to breed until we get a dog with just that attribute.

    Saaaaame thing with flowers or plants, oh this bug doesn’t like this plant or this plant is much harder to kill, this yields so much more crops etc.

    Reply

    The reason I hate GMO’s is that the new organisms are not something that could have evolved naturally (in a realistic time frame at least). These GMO’s are alien species and could easily have extremely serious effects on the environment – once these GMO’s are released into the environment, it is likely that we can never unrelease them and we will have to live, or perhaps die, with them. If you understand how plants and animals GRADUALLY evolve TOGETHER, over thousands of years, than you might understand that suddenly releasing alien GMO’s that will compete with all our planets current lifeforms, especially if they are given DNA specifically to protect them from attack, is an absolutely crazy thing to contemplate, pure insanity in fact.

    Reply

    Alright, alright, I see that you don’t dislike it because the fact it has GMO written over it. Just the same as you can’t take another plant or creature into another country I agree with you. However I do believe it can help if it isn’t done in a bad way of course.

Yes, someone could stick that fork in your eye, bit it could also make eating a lot easier if you use it properly. Not all GMOs are bad, and not all GMO usage strategies are bad, they aren’t poison, they aren’t bee killing agents, pesticides are. In fact, you could genetically engineer plants so that they produce an additional amount of nectar so that bees would be happier and TA-DA there’s a good GMO. But if we remain ignorant, reject all GMOs, burn fields… That’s what’s truly dangerous

    Thank you for this. I keep saying that GMO, or genetic engineering is a science and not a company. Monsanto != GMO. Banning and protesting against a branch of science that could really help us is really what’s happening when people stand up against GMO. OMG, people don’t understand what GMO is. It’s really unfortunate, because altering genetics in a lab can speed up processes to help feed our ever growing population, help save the environment, help bees, as you mentioned, and essentially help in every category that this Facebook page stands for. Their anti-science is concerning to me. Interestingly, scientists are also the biggest environmentalists out there. Science isn’t bad. When will people realize this? Blindly protesting without understanding what you are protesting could be bad.

    Miguel Hernandez Generally the anger around GMO’s is just hype. The problem I have with GMO’s is I think they are quite risky. I’m not aware of any strict global control on how companies conduct themselves and test their GMO products. The companies doing this are out to make money, not feed the world. Monsanto are a company that should have been shutdown many years ago, after they continually end up in court for thumbing their nose at the rules.

    Introducing a GMO plant in the wild is like the many many cases where an animal or insect has been released to deal with some other problem and you then end up with a pest. It’s something that should be done with extreme caution.

    So Miguel Hernandez, your are ok with eating corn or soy that has been GM’d with roundup so that they can spray the entire crop field and not lose their crops? You are ok with the number of people that suffer from Celiac disorders because of the GM alterations that have been made in the last century , solely so that wheat will produce more, come to harvest faster, and at a reduced cost of production for the farmer, while destroying the nutritioal value of wheat?

    Aaron Melgalvis, you have a point there, but again, what I am trying to emphasise here is that GMOs are not to blame for the lack of regulations and the companies using this technique to produce their crops.
    In my opinion, the general public rejecting GMOs in general will achieve one thing only: lack of public and charity funding towards researching use of GMOs to solve today’s problems such as death of pollinators, deforestation and destruction of diversity due to farming. And yes, I believe GMOs could be used to solve these problems if properly used.
    However, while many unbiased researchers with no political or corporate agenda will lose their jobs due to lack of public funding, there are others who won’t suffer from any lack of money to invest in GMOs, and this is companies like Monsanto.
    My point is, by rejecting all GMOs, we the people are causing a lack of funding towards research in good GMOs, whereas big companies will keep researching how to produce GMOs only for their benefit and with no positive ecological impact.
    So rather than blindly rejecting all GMOs, let’s use our power as consumers and voters to use this tool in the right way, and instead tackle specific companies who misuse GMOs.

    The money must be good to say that shit… GMO’s are grown by chemical companies who, contractually, force farmers into using their chemicals on the crops. It’s that fact that make GMO’s bad, the herbicides and pesticides they FORCE farmers to use on them. God, I’m so sick of chemical company trolls coming to these sites and spreading such poison as the truth. As bad as what they do to our food…. Shut the fuck up and go away trolls!!!!

    Miguel, I think you would benefit greatly by researching what GMO’s are. There isn’t one redeeming thing about them if you are concerned about your own and public health.

    There’s no arguing with a bunch of paranoid people who immediately think you’re a paid agent if you don’t agree with everything they say…
    And as for “doing some research” I am a geneticist, and even though my interest is in human genetics, I still have a sound understanding on how plant genetics work and how the process of developing a new GMO works. But no doubt you’ll think a geneticist is someone who creates babies with four arms at an evil company’s request…

    Do people on here actually think he’s being paid to say these facts? Do you think I’m being paid to say this stuff? Here’s how this “debate” had gone so far.

    GMOs are bad. Ban them.

    We’ll, some could be, but the science could save us, for reasons. The companies might be bad and should be regulated more.

    GMOs are bad, this is fact, so you must be paid by the GMO.

    You don’t understand. The science isn’t the problem. It’s the practices of the company that is producing GMOs that is the problem.

    Who is paying you to lie? You have no idea what you’re talking about, even though you spent years in school studying similar topics.

    You must enjoy eating what will kill you, the US FDA studies are hiding the truth on round-up GMO’s as they only tested for 3 months when they should have tested for 6 months as that’s when the tumors and cancers start. They estimate a 200% increase in cancer that you can’t blame on smoking. It is negligence on a large scale. Europe has it right by banning this crap but you keep thinking it’s safe.

    Miguel Hernandez GMOs are not all bad but the way its done now its not so good, not natural at all, we cannot even use seeds from the GMO produces, many studies showed that from the most part they are unhealthy. All they want is to make sure we buy seeds from them every years. I think you need to study the subject a bit more before making such statements.

    Jane Bellamy. Yes, humans can improve on nature. We have been doing that for 10000 years. That is called agriculture. There is nothing that you eat that has not been changed by human hands. There are no natural foods, unless you are a hunter and shoot deer and eat only wild berries.

Good show getting rid of GMO’s. Anyone who thinks they are safe should read the medical journals to see the vast number of cancers caused by the glyphosates/ herbicide used on them.

    GMOs have never caused a single death in human history, glyphosate doesn’t cause cancer, organic farming is way more dangerous if it comes to pesticide use

    BS BS BS there are SEVERAL peer review medical joural articles on studies that prove that Glphosphate causes cancer, as well as arthritis, and most likely, Autism. Don’t believe what Monsanto wants everyone to believe. Information is more available in Europe, where Monsato’s money does not rule everything.

GMO crops provide no gains in yield and only small gains in pest, weed and disease control, and only if you use huge amounts of chemicals. I know this because I am a farmer and made it my business to find out. It can never be better than organic, it certainly does not yield any higher, in-fact there are many studies done on this subject and the studies have been conducted on a number of very large UN farms comparing conventional, GMO and Organic farming methods. After 5 years in every case Organic out strips in nearly every way both other forms of agriculture. The single biggest reason for GMO’s to control the whole production system, that way controlling the farmer and the market becomes simple and very soon the world. So this is a very good news story. It happened in Haiti too where Monsanto sold cheep seed to get them all hooked but they pulled out the crop and told Monsanto to F off… Organic is the way to go, it is a system that takes skill and knowledge and very good husbandry, unlike the other two systems that rely on chemicals, which if they did not have they would collapse immediately. Organic farming has access to hundreds of amazing and very tasty varieties of seed In horticulture and arable farming. Livestock are grown slower, kept longer and are not intensively fed on a diet of corn, which they dont eat and never go near hormones or antibiotics unless it is absolutely necessary. organic gives back, it makes the land and top soil healthy, animals healthy and crops healthy with nothing nasty and it can feed the worlds ten times over… Monsanto is scum of the highest lying order.
