6. Double standards
The supermarket has made commitments to ban GE foods and/or pesticides in
other countries or regional markets, but has given no such commitments in China
and Hong Kong (nationwide or regionally).

Why are genetically engineered (GE) foods dangerous?
There is still huge uncertainty regarding the long-term safety of GE foods. Scientific
experiments have found that animals fed GE foods exhibited allergy like reactions,
and some exhibited abnormal changes to their liver and kidney tissue. Releasing
GE crops into the environment can also contaminate and negatively impact natural
biodiversity. Extensive market research has found that consumers in China and
Hong Kong are clearly against GE foods. As such, Greenpeace is actively pushing
for supermarkets to respect consumer desires by making a commitment to non-GE
foods.

Why is Greenpeace asking supermarkets to ban
pesticides?
The health and environmental hazards of pesticides have been well
documented already. They can cause immediate as well as long-term
health damages. Some pesticides are highly poisonous in smallest
doses. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies pesticides
according to their acute poisonous; pesticides in Class 1 are extremely
hazardous or highly hazardous. The United Nations Food & Agriculture
Organization recommends that developing countries do not use WHO
I pesticides. Many organophosphate pesticides, which were developed
from war-time nerve gas research are listed in WHO’s classification,
in addition they pose long-term dangers for human health, especially
that of children. Many other pesticides are used in large quantities
threatening the environment and people, and pesticide residues can be
found in many foods including vegetables and fruit.
As a result, for the protection of human health and the environment,
Greenpeace is campaigning for supermarkets to ban the use of the
most hazardous pesticides as an immediate action.

Why should supermarkets take responsibility to protect
consumer safety and the environment?
