A dynamic wave of progress is evident in the area of food safety and purity, particularly in Europe, India, and the United States, reported a leading expert in this field.

Dr John Fagan, an Administrator of the Global Country of World Peace with global responsibility for food purity and safety, credited these changes to a rise in coherence in the world. Large coherence-creating groups such as the Invincible America Assembly of Yogic Flyers in Iowa, USA and the Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India are contributing to the expansion of life-supporting trends around the world.

'We have been very actively involved in the dialogue and the debate on GMOs [Genetically Modified Organisms]—in India, in Europe, and to some extent also in the US,' he said, speaking on 13 January.

In Europe, polls show rejection of GMO has been steadily rising over the past decade. 'This is reflected in improvements in labeling systems and in increasing consumer awareness. Many of the nations are now creating GMO-free regions—regions where the farmers can grow food protected from GMOs,' Dr Fagan said.

In India, 'the government has essentially banned the first genetically-engineered vegetable that was attempted to bring to market'—the eggplant. The genetically modified eggplant met with mass rejection across the nation, Dr Fagan said. In the wake of that, at least five different states of India have declared they will not allow genetically engineered crops to be grown in their state.

In the US, there has also been a breakthrough dialogue which has begun between government officials and the organic community and the agricultural community as a whole, to help protect farmers and consumers who want food that is GMO-free.
