"Japan does not produce any GM crops. However,
because Japan imports GM canola from Canada, GM contamination
has already occurred and it is spreading to a much greater

or importing GM crops, leads to GM pollution and once
this pollution begins, it can cause irreversible damage,"

of more than 80 Japanese consumer groups, along with farmers'
groups and others, have visited Australia, Canada and
the United States to protest GM foods. Sources: * Organic
