Ecologists in the Urals have made an appeal to Chief Russian Sanitary Doctor Gennady Onischenko that greater restrictions be imposed to limit the amount of genetically modified food available in shops. A Rosbalt correspondent was informed of this today at the Urals Ecological Union.
According to Olga Podosenova, a member of the union, at least 5% of all Russian food is genetically modified whereas the EU is currently seeking to reduce this level to 1%. Genetically modified food has serious implications for the health of the consumer. Several people have already died in Russia as a result of allergies to genetically modified food.
In their letter to Mr Onischenko the ecologists insisted that genetically modified food is a serious threat to the health of the population and the instability of the national economy does not justify making such food available.
