CBAN's new report - Are GM Crops Better for the Environment? – GMO Inquiry 2015 finds herbicide use increased 130%
The Canadian government wants to allow a percent, 0.2% or higher, of our food to be contaminated with genetically modified (GM) foods that have not been approved by Health Canada as safe. The GM foods will have been approved for safety in at least one other country but not yet approved by our own government. The federal government calls this “Low Level Presence” or LLP and argues that this “low level” of contamination from unapproved GM foods is not harmful. Click here for more information and action.
