Azores declared GMO-free zone

in News · 17-12-2011 00:00:00 · 2 Comments

The regional government of the Azores archipelago on the mid-Atlantic ridge has declared it is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) free zone.

As such, the region “prohibits the growing, sowing, planting nor breeding of any GMOs throughout its territory”. The regulation still permits exceptions for scientific research and technological development that are clearly in the public’s interest.

Congratulations, Azores! This is why I moved here, because of GMO free status. Now I hope Azores will also STOP fluoridation or chlorination of its public water supplies.
