GMO Products Banned in Russia

"If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don't need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food."

  - Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev

Medvedev recently made the statement above after Russia became one of the latest nations to ban GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) products in their country. The decision was made after a group of Russian scientists recommended that there be a ten-year moratorium on GMOs, to give them time to carry out the necessary experiments in order to find out if GMOs are safe for human consumption or not.

Irina Ermakova, VP of Russia’s National Association for Genetic Safety, confirmed that multiple studies of GMOs in several other countries have shown that GMOs are "dangerous" and that methods of obtaining such GMOs are not safe.

According to Ermakova, "Consumption and use of GMOs obtained in such ways can lead to tumors, cancers and obesity among animals. Bio-technologies certainly should be developed, but GMOs should be stopped."

There are actually hundreds of studies from various countries, of which the results are publicly available, which show that GMOs are harmful.

On a side-note, Medvedev also recently confirmed that there are aliens/extraterrestrials amongst us but wouldn't say how many due to risk of panic.
