From CAFO to plate, from MSG to cancer, France bans American toxic food, again!
According to Natural News, France will extend its suspension on the cultivation of Monsanto's genetically-modified (GM) MON810 corn within its borders, despite the ruling given by the French Council of State that says the ban is in exact opposite to what EU law says. Francois Hollande, the French head of state, stated in a recent official announcement that they will continue the ban, as the cultivation of GMO crops are in violation of environmental rules and is harmful for the environment. The initial ban on the crop was passed some six years ago when the EC failed to recognize the threats this crop created for the environment and approved its cultivation, which prompted France to reject it on a unilateral basis.

The Agricultural Ministry is not in favor of these crops; in light of the threat this crop presents towards the environment, the Ministry has decided “to temporarily prohibit the cultivation of the corn MON810 on the national territory in order to protect the environment," read a statement issued by the French government last year.
It has been more than a year and a half and the EC has still not been able to give reasons to support the cultivation of GMO corn and the claim that it is not harmful. as such, France has decided to extend the ban on the cultivation of this crop in order to protect its environment. The Ministry aptly stated that they have prohibited the crop, not because they are against the growth and development of the human civilization, but because this measure will ensure the safety of civilization as well as the environment we live in.
