Could the TTIP allow GMOs into the EU?

A trade deal between the EU and the US may allow genetically modified foods (GMOs) into the European market.

Among these concerns is that if the TTIP is implemented, the import re-inspection at port of entry would no longer happen because the U.S and EU food safety systems would be recognized as “equivalent,” which, for example, could inadvertently allow genetically modified agricultural products into the EU food supply.

I don’t have faith in the U.S. regulatory and political structure to stand up to Big Ag. I’m hoping that the people in these European Union countries will take to the streets to stop the likes of Monsanto and others from damaging their food supply with GMOs. We simply cannot let bad U.S. corporatist policy to run wild.
