Last year the august house moved a motion barring the importation of GMOs into the country citing among other reasons health effects. They did claim there is a direct link between eating GMOs and cancer or something close to that. I don’t know who their science adviser or research assistant is but I trust the Parliamentary Commission on Agriculture sleeps on the job or listens to the wrong crowd.
Am not an expert in GMOs, so am not going to say anything more beyond what have said but I will let you read more from here and watch the video
and hopefully we can revisit this discussion as a nation.
