NGO advises Tanzania against genetically modified food products

ActionAid has advised Tanzania against embracing genetically modified Organism (GMO) food products in the country.

The organisation’s agriculture and food security advisor, Elias Mtinda, says that there is a need for the government to make its own decision without being influenced by bigger companies on decisions regarding the approval of the use of GMO food products.

Mtinda says multinational companies which are involved in producing GMOs seeds like the Monsanto's and Bill Gates's firms are aimed at sourcing market for their products even if such products may have adverse effects on human beings.
