LIMA (AFP) – Peru's capital Lima declared itself a "GMO-free zone" in a municipal ordinance in response to a controversial government decree that critics feared would see the country flooded with genetically modified organisms.

The city council, lead by Mayor Susana Villaran, officially declared the city of eight million a "territory free of transgenic and genetically modified organisms," to protect the population's health and preserve biodiversity and the environment.

The article says there was an earlier decree about biosafety, but it only regulated entry procedures for GMO's, and I guess they wanted to take it further.

So what are the odds Lima's population will become healthier now?
