in China | China Watch
and China's Health Crisis
This is an online survey that received 52,000 responses.
The survey asked readers if they would choose GM food when
shopping. 83% said no.
While in the recent decade, particularly in the past five
years, China's step towards becoming the biggest GMO (import)
nation in the world quickens, so is the growing public suspicion
over the GM food, as well as the increased resistance to
the pro-GM policies enforced by the Chinese authority. The
confrontation between a small group of Monsanto allied bio
scientists and Chinese mass intensified when 61 bio researchers
demanded the government to commercialise the GM rice plantation
without delay, and when many of these "scientists"
are exposed to either have a financial link with the US bio companies
or openly hold a position there.
And it's not just those GM researchers.
Li Jiayang (李家洋), the vice Agricultural
Minister and the director of China's Agricultural Research
Institute, was officially on the Advisory
Panel of the US GMO company DuPont.
As Chinese government openly work with the US GM companies
and let their men control China's food safety issue, the
public objection to the GM food is mounting. The following
figures are collected from various Chinese official publications
by some Chinese online identities who attribute the public
health crisis to the large scale forced consumption of the
GM food. And this suggestion is agreed readily and widely
cross China's cyber space.
Chinese male sperm survival rate was
above 90% in 1980s. Entering 90s, it dropped to 80s and
lingered at this level for more than a decade until 2006,
soy beans gave way to GM replacement imported from
the US. That year the rate slipped to 70%. It took only
4 years for the sperm survival rate to dive to 50% in
2010. (CCTV 7pm news, October 28, 2010)
China currently has 160 million infertility population
among people of reproductive age. About 6 people are
diagnosed with cancer every minute in China, and one
in every seven to eight death were the result of cancer.
The cases of young people developing cancer are continuously
increasing. (Chinese Cancer Registry Annual Report 2012)
There are 4 million Chinese with leukaemia
disease, more than half of the patients are children
or young adults (Official statistics).
The following are some food for thought:
Mao： People's right to live
is the most imporatant human right which is paramount than
anything else; for defending their right to live, people have
the right to resist bad governance. 人民的生存权是最大的人权，人民的生存权高于一切；人民要生存，就必须自卫。
urging me to support that guy [Xi Jinping]
who has forced me to consume GMO and locked Mr Bo Xilai in jail
will be regarded by me as a paid advocator. 至少到目前为止，凡是要我支持拥护谁的我一概视为皇左！一个叫我吃转基因和审判书记的人你们喊破天老子理都不理！
