Monsanto, the “most evil company in the world” that is notorious for genetically modified organisms (GMOs), is regrouping after a monumental loss against Maui, Hawaii. Monsanto will have to abide to citizens’ decision to ban GMOs in their county.

The results come from a lengthy battle, starting when Monsanto filed suit against the Hawaiian county after the GMO ban was voted in. Speculation of corruption arose when news of the judge overseeing the case was connected with Monsanto, mostly through his wife.

Nevertheless, Monsanto lost their case, therefore any more “bad news” to business would be annoying at this time. Unfortunately for them, they will not receive such a reprieve, as Russia officially banned GMOs in their country.

According to an article by RT and followed up by Collective Evolution, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev recently announced that Russia will no longer be importing any form of GMOs into Russia. Furthermore, Medvedev showed favor to organic farming.

“If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food.”

Russia joins the ranks of others countries listed by the Examiner, including Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and New Zealand, in the banning or partial-banning of GMOs. However, it should be noted that Russia didn’t just ban GMOs because they have space and opportunities. Following the urges of Russian scientists, they are considering at least a 10-year moratorium on GMOs to thoroughly study GMO influence on human health.
