Food Crisis

The food crisis is one of the major issues for contemporary man. The food chains include in production the use of industrial chemical agents, as genetically modified products do. The dioxin scandal and 'mad' cows – animal diseases, that is, which become human diseases – as well as issues connected with the nourishment model and food shortage or its surplus supply which have impacts on health, even causing fatalities by reverse approaches to the issue of food, have rendered necessary a statement of our own position on these.

Food Crisis

It is clear that the companies which produce mutated seeds persist at regular intervals in invoking whatever suits them (laws, scientific research, world poverty, and the state of agriculture) in order to gain permission in the EU for certain mutated products, such as maize seed, to be cultivated.

7 June 2011, Rome - High and volatile agricultural commodity prices are likely to prevail for the rest of this year and into 2012 according to the latest analysis published today in FAO's biannual Food Outlook.
