GMO are time bomb to a human society and longevity. It consumes human health by day. Beside, if it was for the rich it would make sense, since they can afford medical expenses and check-ups. But the poor and the disadvantage will wasted. So rather suggest that to the Western countries and see if they would allow it.

It would further poison our soil and water.
Ruining our health.
Using people as guinea pigs
Corn is a staple food so there is no way for the poor to avoid it. Our hospitals already cannot cope. Adding these toxins will put an even heavier burden on our society.

Studies have shown the health risk that GMO products have
poisoning the people of South Africa will only lead to a "dead country" relying once again on foreign medical aid.

There are other sources of producing enough for our people. Gov needs to consult the right people for once

is the rise in the incidents of cancer in south africa not sufficient to prove that genetically modified food is not good for human consumption ? i am not a scientist, but my common sense tells me that the food we are consuming is not even consumed by worns. think of the days when one could not store mielie meal for extended periods without attracting worms/maggots.
currently it is not impossible to keep the same product for months and will not even attract one maggot. which means we are eating food that maggots would not dare to eat. what morons will even consider killing their own people by feeding them this poison ?

It is not good for human consumption and it will replace natural crops which is not good. I don't like artificial products. I work hard to buy organic and encourage my family to do so. We do t need exageraed chemicals in our bodies.
It is already extreme with current processed foods which I and my family stay away from as much as we can read food notices on packages

Gmo is same as poisen. Killing you fast or slow.

It is the main crop for food production for many of our indigenous people. A nything that may upset this is unacceptable.

All GMO are bad for peoples health and only a money making scheme where people get poisoned. GMO is never for making products more healthy and is only for making more cheaper products at the cost of peoples health. GMO is poison and is linked to cancers.

This rubbish has to be stopped immediately it is a well known fact that Monsanto who were the originators of modified seed have put poisons in there to kill off all the birds and bees and insects in addition to the proven fact that the chemicals in these modified seeds cause cancer .. stop it now

Message to the Pro GMO or for it.

Human race is developing quicker than 30 years ago. If you want to believe this, take a pic of a 4 years old in the 70s or 80s and take one of a 4 year old now. This all relates to climate change and everything else. Now to have processed maize is going to kill younger generation. We are already seeing age 25 - 35 experiencing chronic illnesses that are deemed natural, like heart attacks. Please stop feeding us food that will speed up the fading of human race in south Africa.


I am from North west, put money into helping farmers in the areas that generate crop, wheat and other ingredients that produce maize.

Thank you

Clinically proven to have adverse effects on health. We do not consent to gm foods so don't do it
Vic
No to the GMO release.
Rather ban the product and use products that do not cause cancer and other health issues.
Perma-culture, organic farming and companion planting can do the same for communities without causing cancer just to help industrial farming take advantage of everyone.

Most of the gmo experiments that have been tested, specially maize, have been either inconclusive on just did not pass human consumption anyway. If the gmo seed are procured anywhere in America or Europe, than our government is complicit in the genocide of our people, especially the black and poor of this country.

Gmo maize is unconstitutional. The adverse effects on people is equivalent to the genocide. The environmental disaster is irreversible. The people are deprived the right to grow their own maize seeds. Refer to coton farmers in India who committed mass suicides as a results of gmo seed cotton. All countries who respect their people have banned gmo. In SADC we are amongst a few who accept gmo maize.
The people of south Africa were not aware that government has approved gmo maize. There no public debates or health warnings regarding gmo food.

Just feel it's not right to have things that did not evolve to have a specific resistance. I believe it's not in keeping with good husbandry.
