US: The misnamed “Food Safety” Bill has been passed by the Senate and the House. It will drive many small farmers and organic food growers out of business and cause job losses because of extensive new regulations, all in the name of protecting consumers. It also will increase dependency on imported food that typically has more pesticides; thus the result will be LESS food safety. [The law was promoted by large Agri-biz corporations that are skilled at using governments to eliminate their competition.]

Malaysians have started a national petition against GMO mosquitoes, which are scheduled to be released upon 2 cities. [The petition points out that there is no independent scientific data proving that GMO mosquitoes effectively prevent dengue fever or that the mosquitoes will not mutate into something else. The law that calls for the introduction of GMO mosquitoes protects the scientists and the government from liability should something go wrong. – just as with vaccine legislation in the U.S. and most western countries.]
