China refused over 887,000 tonnes of GMO corn shipped from the U.S. since just last November. But it looks as if the biotech bullies are at it again, pushing their toxic corn on the Vice Agricultural Minister, Niu Dun, who expects the approval process to go through quickly. (1 tonne equals 2,204.6 pounds). This time it is Syngenta, one of the biggest chemical companies in the world, asserting their health-harming crops on one of the biggest markets in the world.
Syngenta has already submitted the appropriate documents to receive approval from the Chinese government for MIR162, a genetically modified strain of corn. Its approval awaits only the biosafety committee’s nod.
