Actor Karthi, who, as an environmental  activist,  raises  his  voice  on  farmers’ issues, has made known his concern over the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) altering the regulations on Genetically Modified (GM) foods, making it easier for such foods to be imported. The actor has signed an online petition to prevent GM foods from entering Indian kitchens.

Karthi, who is well informed about farm practices and products, said, “Dear friends, an important online petition that should concern all of us. It is about the Food Safety and Authority of India altering the regulations on GM & GE Foods, which could open flood- gates to GM foods coming  into our lives. I am signing on. Pls sign, if you agree to this.” He posted the link to the petition.

 

The petitioners are Ananthoo, Rajesh Krishnan and Usha Soolapani, identified as sustainable agriculture and safe food enthusiasts.

“Genetically Modified food if allowed to come into the market is said to have much adverse effect on the people who consume it due to toxicity. It could diminish immunity, could be cancerous, affect reproduction and could even be life threatening according to researchers all over the globe,” said the petition.

“GM foods were found to cause health problems like allergies, immune system impairment, stunted growth and development, organ damage, reproductive    health impacts and even pre- cancerous growths etc.,” it added.
