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.

    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.

    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.

Wow. Lots of hungry folks in the world. Bet they’d like the luxury of burning food that could prevent them from dying of starvation. Bet a lot of kids would choose going to school hungry over eating GMO corn. That’s right. Cheer destruction of food you have the luxury of refusing to eat.

    Karen Kinbar Do you realise what you are saying/ Or are you one of these Jeremy kyle watchers that sits in front of rubbish TV all day every day. GM foods have now been proven to be the cause that is killing off our honey bees and other wild bees. Without these bees the whole world will be in danger of starvation. Wake up and smell the coffee, or are you employed by Monsanto?

    Karen Kinbar: there’s enough food but a lot is being destroyed because not enough profit is made on it (see also Conor O’Neil’s comment). Moreover, what many ppl OUTSIDE the US (and maybe inside too) have had enough of is being force fed American big corp crap (lies for profit). Even worse if it is bad for OUR natural habitat. Go destroy your own country with that stuff, not ours…

    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.

    Reply

    John Rowlands Please could you tell me on what basis you say that GMO is killing honey bees? Do you have a published, peer-reviewed and independent source which I could look at? I ask because there’s an awful lot of hysteria out there. By the way, your unpleasant remarks about Ms Kanbar are unworthy.

    Reply

    Karen Kinbar Thanks for offering a different point of view. The ludicrous knee-jerk reaction against GMOs is reminiscent of the reaction to Edward Jenner, for example.

    Reply

    Tara Benedict Please could you tell me where you are getting your information? Do you have a published, peer-reviewed and independent source for your claims? Your assertions about Roundup, for example, are unsound.

    I applaud this. GMO is mostly allowed in US, other countries care about what their people are eating. GMO is creating health problems, killing honey bees and other beneficial insects and making billions for monsanto and pharmaceuticals.

    Ian Carter anything that is not natural is bad for us. Do you work for Monsanto, or a pharmaceutical company. There are all kinds of studies that prove gmo is not safe. If it kills insects it can’t be good for us either.

    These are still GMO as this is NOT natural corn – it has been bred to be the way it is now. All that has changed is the technology not the effects.

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.

    Reply

    Donna Sites Hear hear! This is an excellent point.

    Reply

    Raymond Fuller Doctors know the body detoxes itself. If it’s poison they treat you for that specific poison. Spraying round up on it gets washed off. Even organic crops need insecticides. GMO crops are safe. You have been misinformed.

    You can die from ingesting too much fat soluble vitamins and even organic things.

    Moreover Monsanto holds the patent on the genetic modifications they have made and when they spread to neighbouring non-GM crops, in the US farmers have been made to destroy their crops because they are not entitled to the genes.!!!

    Also nullifies the organic status of infected farms which take years to earn accreditation.

    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.

    In the US they have been directly involved, and in Canada too.

    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. You don’t have to look very far back in the history of many politicians and agency appointees to find their direct connection to Monsanto. Mike Taylor only being the the tip of that iceberg.

Reply

    Please avoid Corn, soy, cotton and canola they are all sprayed with roundup as an herbicide and created in a lab to withstand maximum amounts of herbicide.
    Wheat, oats, barley, beans and rice are all drenched in roundup prior to harvest as a desiccant. To dry it out for transport.
    The makers of agent orange have no business controlling our food supply while poisoning soil, air, water and life.
    We owe our existence to topsoil. We cannot wage war on it and expect to thrive.
