Monsanto’s ‘healthier environment’ ads banned in South Africa

from The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) of South Africa has ordered
biotech titan Monsanto to withdraw its ads on local radio in which the
company boasts the supposed benefits of GM crops, including a “healthier
environment” and “more food sustainably.”

The authority’s order for Monsanto to withdraw its commercial on
Radio 702 will take immediate effect, according to a press
release on the entity’s website. 

According to the ASA, the claims made by the leading producer of
genetically engineered crops are unsubstantiated.
