Eat this or else...

/ sovereignty / redefined /
Apparently making personal decisions about what to eat is not part of Democracy as defined by the WTO and the US government. This is breathtakingly perverse:
"A plan by Cyprus to put genetically modified food on separate supermarket shelves angered the United States on Wednesday, as Washington warned the move could harm bilateral ties.

The U.S. had sent a letter to the Cypriot parliament warning that the move by the European Union country would stigmatise biotech goods and could contravene Cyprus' obligations as a World Trade Organization member, deputies said.

A U.S. diplomat did not deny the existence of the note and said Washington regularly shared views with Cyprus on issues of concern.

Under EU legislation, each state is free to display biotech food as it wishes."
