For once, China is more progressive than the USA.

I wish the US would take note. I want "real" food, I want mandatory labeling, I want to know what is in my food so I can make an informed buy of what I am feeding my family. Now I am learning that even though I plant seeds to grow my own food in the summer (if it ever warms up) that the seeds I am buying could be GMO seed. I am appalled that the government thinks this is okay. It is not!

Yet America allows GMOs to be fed to our children...and everybody else.

Pay Attention, USA. A quote fro the article....
“It’s about time that government officials took a proactive step to protect their citizens against the increasing rates of pesticide residue as result of the over application of roundup on GMO crops,” Murphy said. “The remarkable fact is that it’s China and not America.”

Murphy added that it could have a big impact on Monsanto’s future.

“This could be the nail in the coffin for Monsanto,” he said. “Rejection of Monsanto’s flagship product, genetically engineered Roundup Ready soybeans, by China is a pretty damning market based decision by the most populous nation on the planet.

“The question is, what does the Chinese military know about GMOs and the negative impact of Roundup that the U.S. government is not telling us?”

It's interesting that this was only for the army. It had nothing to about the general population who are having enough trouble actually breathing.....
