Ban the promotion and use of GENETICALLY MODIFIED CROPS in Uganda.

By eroding our traditional crops farmers become dependant on buying genetically modified seeds which do not replicate, this increases dependence, poverty and hunger. 80% of our population depends on agriculture, being dependant on foreign multi-nationals puts our entire nation at risk.
The effects of GMO's on Human Beings health are poorly understood and may lead to side effects like cancer, allergies and birth defects.
