Industry giant Monsanto (which may soon be taken over by Bayer) is linked to many brands that we enjoy every day in our homes. The NGO Greenpeace has established the list of brands that can commercialize these transgenic products.
This list of products has been condemned by many French consumers after the health scandals of the global pesticide giant in their own country, where it was already convicted of poisoning a French farmer
Labeling of conventional food products to detect the presence or absence of GMOs is almost non-existent. To fill this gap, Greenpeace presented food manufacturers with a questionnaire on the use of genetically modified plants.
The submitted proposal allowed NGOs to classify these brands as a color code: green, for those who guarantee not to use genetically modified organisms; red, includes those products for which Greenpeace cannot guarantee that they do not contain GMOs. You can review this list, to make a more conscious purchase.
Bt corn produces a toxin to kill a harmful insect on the crop but also kills beneficial insects. It has been criticized by the French competent authority on antibiotics, that a gene is used that gives resistance to antibiotics. But it is hard to escape the products of the multinational Monsanto, they are everywhere on the shelves of the main supermarkets!
Even in hygiene products.
Thousands of boxes were recalled in Canada and France after investigation by the magazine "60 millions consumateurs" ensured that Tampax, Always and other brands of tampons and feminine pads could contain "highly toxic residues".
An investigation revealed that 85% of cotton products in Argentina contained glyphosate, now a study by a French magazine denounces the presence of the herbicide in brands such as Tampax and Always.
