Italian Minister of Agriculture Francesco Lollobrigida said on October 2o the withdrawal of its proposed anti-cultivated meat bill Italy submitted to the European Union ‘is not a step back’, but many speculate that the government may want to avoid a likely rejection by the European Commission.
On October 13, Italy officially withdrew the Technical Regulation Information System notification (TRIS) for this bill, a EU procedure aimed at preventing the creation of barriers within the block’s internal market. Only after a positive scrutiny of the EU the law can enter into force in Italy, but without it, it remains scrap paper.
Over 2 million people and 3500 municipalities in Italy have signed a petition to normatize cultivated meat, said Minister Lollobrigida – although Italian agriculture organisation and promoter of the petition Coldiretti latest numbers confirms in March the collection of half million signatures. But despite this relative consensus, the ban could prevent the settlement of new biotech and lab-grown food firms in the country, whereas according to Italian science group Associazione Coscioni, the ban could be considerate a breach to Article nine of the Italian Constitution, that promote the development of scientific research.
In March of this year, Giorgia Meloni’s brother in law and Agriculture Minister proposed a draft law to ban lab-grown food in Italy – with the aim to “protect national interest, food heritage and consumers’ health.”. The bill included measures that prohibit the production and sale of what in Italy is called ‘synthetic food’ and a fine of up to nearly $64,000.
In July, the Senate of the Italian Republic approved on July 19 the bill preventing the production and import of cultivated products, whereas Lollobrigida stated his pride in Italy’s pioneering role of first country to ban the marketing, importation, and production of synthetic food.
Italy has become the first country to issue a total ban on Bill Gates’ synthetic meat products after numerous studies found the lab-grown fake meat products cause turbo cancers in humans. Meanwhile, in the US the Biden administration has fast-tracked the controversial products for approval.
“Italy is the first nation to say no to synthetic food, to so-called ‘synthetic meat’. It does so with a formal and official act,” Health Minister Orazio Schillaci announced. “The resolution calls for a commitment to ban the production, marketing and import of synthetic foods within our territory.
“These regulations aim to regulate situations where the environmental public health could be at risk, or when there is uncertainty regarding the effects of certain products that are being or will introduced to the market or consumed,” Schillaci continued.
“It is crucial to have measures in place to address these potential risks and ensure the safety of the environment and public health in such cases,” he concluded. Watch:
Synthetic meat has been heavily promoted by Bill Gates and the globalist elites at the WEF as the solution to so-called climate change. When peddling his book “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” in 2021, Gates told the MIT Technology Review that “all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef.”
However, this fake food has now been shown to cause cancer via the immortalized cell lines used to manufacture it.
Meanwhile in the US, Biden has fast tracked Bill Gates’ lab-grown ‘synthetic meat’ for approval, meaning grocery stores across America can now sell the carcinogenic fake meat to the public.
In an unprecedented move, the Biden’s United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved the sale of Gates’ lab-grown “chicken meat” in late June.
The approval from regulators will allow the companies to flood the U.S. food supply with their controversial products.
