Greenpeace releases safe food guide version 2.0

Source: Green Peace, Date: September , 2010

Greenpeace, has been instrumental in defining parameters related to the use of genetically engineered foods in India.

India does not currently permit any genetically modified (GM) food crop to be commercially cultivated. However this does not mean that there may be no GM food ingredients in the food produced in India. As we have seen, there have been hundreds of acres of field trials and unmonitored processed and raw grain imports into the country. Therefore, “No GM seeds being sold” is not enough to assure consumers that our food is GM free today or will be GM free in the future.

This pocket size guide or the version 2 can help individuals understand better the hazards related to GM food and also what toxicities can persist in the food we eat.
