A generation of guinea pigs, no thanks! by Collectif Appel de la Jeunesse

Collectif Appel de la Jeunesse, a French non-profit NGO, is calling on citizens to support their campaign calls to take action. They demand more transparency on the actual health effects of GMOs and the application of the precautionary principle.

The action was partially triggered by the lack of sufficient independent long-term scientific studies on GMOs assessing the health risks of consumption by humans and the recent scientific results on the long-term toxic effects of GM maize NK603 and Roundup.

Visit their website (FR) to find out more about this call for action or to sign up to the petition if you don’t wish to be a guinea pig of the chemical industry!
