In 2016, the UK Farmers Ministry said that if the country votes to leave the EU, a more transparent environmental policy could be created, free of the Brussels Spiritual Directives. The Minister concerned, George Eustice, said the EU’s precautionary principle must be modified to a risk-based model such as the US so that adoption can be increased.
The mere business spin is nevertheless the’ GM feeding the global mantra.’ Technology has a dubious record and in any case, sufficient food is already being generated to feed the global population, yet around 830 million are classified as hungry, with a micro-nutrient deficiency of two billion. If Johnson wants to’ feed the world,’ then he’d better see the inherent injustices of the global diet regime driven by the very corporations with whom he appears to be lying.
Conservative politicians are only trying to justify post-Brexit trade agreements with Washington that will bring the United Kingdom fully into the regulatory nutrition system in the US. The type of “liberation” is the case that the UK uses more glyphosate (or similar agrochemicals) and a drop in food safety and ecological standards for GM plants that were not assessed.
At its meeting on 20 November 2017, Dave Bench delivered a report. The findings have shown that between 7 and 18 times more pesticide active ingredients added to three British crops than half as farms and industry believed had risen between 1974 and 2016!! In addition to the new evidence for increased pesticide use in the UK, new scientific research has also been presented at the conference from around the world demonstrating that very low doses of pesticides far under the official level of’ protection’ pose significant risks to the public health through our food supply.
Just as the UN Global Chemicals Outlook II reports show large volumes of hazardous substances, as well as contaminating food supplies and accumulating in the bodies where they are severely affected, tend to leak into the atmosphere. This document is important. The European Environment Agency’s estimates suggest that 62% of the number of chemicals used in Europe are health-hazardous. The World Health Organization reports that 1.6 million lives will be affected by diseases with identified chemicals. Many others ‘ lives are adversely affected.
