Major Global Shakeup…Russia Suspends Use of GMO Corn….National Security at Risk?

american-gm-cornA little off the (well) beaten track of foreclosures and the economy, but consider the far reaching impact of a global food shortage….and confirmation that American technology…distributed by an American company…contributed to an increased risk of cancer.
Well, that’s the specter of the crisis that’s looming based on a recently released academic study that is alleged to have found an increased cancer risk from GMO corn.   Even if the study is discredited, the allegations of putting poison into the worldwide food system by an American company will have a dramatic impact on world relations….
Russia has suspended the import and use of an American GM corn following a study suggesting a link to breast cancer and organ damage.
Separately, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), has ordered its own review in to the research, which was conducted at a French university.
The decision by Russia could be followed by other nations in what would be a severe blow to the take-up of the controversial technology.

    I don’t like GM corn either , the planting of GM and the associated chemicals (roundup) inevitably leads to more and more GM acreage and the eventual decline of non-GM strains as acreage is polluted by the “roundup” … This may have a small positive effect for us in the short term as we may retain more corn here in the US for our consumption… That might lead to smaller price increases due to the drought than we might otherwise have.
