Los Angeles is considering banning the cultivation and sale of genetically modified organisms. If it does, the second-largest U.S. city would become the country's largest GMO-free zone.
Two LA city councilmen on Friday introduced a motion that would ban the growth, sale and distribution of genetically engineered seeds and plants. The councilmen, Paul Koretz and Mitch O’Farrell, said the measure is meant to protect local gardens and homegrown food from contamination by genetically modified seeds. The motion would not affect the sale of food containing genetically modified ingredients.
This is fantastic. Maybe we will see more of it in the future if it passes. I for one believe that GMO products should be banned as well, but at least it is a start. I am fortunate enough to live in an area(very small area) where organically grown foods is very popular so I at least get reduced amounts of GMO's.
