Brazilian Court Demands Nestle Label GMO Ingredients

It appears another victory has been declared in the battle against Monsanto and GMO ingredients. According to a major Brazilian business publication and GMWatch, a Brazilian court has demanded that multi-billion dollar food giant Nestle label all of their products as genetically modified that have over 1% GMO content. The ruling reportedly coincides with Brazilian law which demands all food manufacturers alert consumers to the presence of GMOs within their products.

Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that the court exposed a deep relationship between the Brazilian government and a major food industry lobby group that was forged in an effort to stop the court from issuing the ruling. This of course is predictable when considering that not only does Monsanto have a massive amount of political power with a figurehead in multiple branches of government, but when considering the previous WikiLeaks report that detailed how those who opposed Monsanto and biotechnology would be subject to ‘military style trade wars’.

The WikiLeaks documents revealed just how closely Monsanto has been working with the United States government, and just how serious the U.S. is about ensuring that the corporation’s GMO crops are widely accepted across the globe.

Amazingly, the Brazilian court took a stand against this corruption. Instead of groveling to Brazilian officials and mega biotechnology groups, the Brazilian business wire reports that the court determined the Brazilian government to be illegally working with the food industry entity known as ABIA. Furthermore, the court stated that consumers have the basic right to know what they are putting into their mouths — especially when it comes to GMO ingredients.

The court issued a fine of $2,478 per product that was found to violate the ruling after finding the presence of GMO ingredients in Nestle’s strawberry “Bono” cookies.

Other nations have taken similar actions against Monsanto and GMOs as a whole, with Poland banning Monsanto’s GM maize and Peru passing a monumental 10 year ban on GMOs as a whole. In the United States, the government continues to ignore and deny the concerns surrounding genetically modified crops and ingredients, instead streamlining the approval process for Monsanto’s new modified creations.

    Label it. Why not get rid of i? Why not just say ship the stuff here and it means war on your country and we will sanction everything you make. If the stuff is harmful, then our country knows it, but these countries just keep on banning the stuff, but the USA has a little trick for you. When we declare martial law in the USA, then Israel will own the whole country after it is weakened. Then they regulate the Internet. The only thing slowing things down is people are getting info. People aren’t taking vaccines and their eating better. When the fast food palces start to close and big pharma is put out of business you know we are turning the tide, but they arne’t going to let that happen. It makes you want to leave the USA and never return. This government we elect are purposely attacking us and making us sick and the whole time none of them speak up. Not one politician has said anything about 9/11. Look how the Republicans shut up and sat down over Obama’s illegal birth certificate. If it was war between the parties they would demand Obama be arrested. But now they have been told by the black hand to sit down and shut up and of course 9/11 they knew what that was and all politicians were probably warned in advance. Folks if they allow Israelis to attack us you know the end is near.
