We like science as much as anybody likes science, especially when it’s used to the benefit of all, and to the harm of none. We have yet to see a GMO that fits this description.
Some say that the mix of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) used in conventional agriculture is safe for human consumption. The truth is, no one really knows. However, there are plenty of great reasons to stop the GMOs. They increase “super weeds” and therefore increase pesticide use and toxicity, and do great economic harm to farmers and the food system.
GMOs lead to increased use of stronger, more toxic pesticide combinations.
New GMO corn variety only compounds the toxic problem.
GMOs, agriculture and politics make for a crazy weave. Colin Todhunter untangles the web on Counter Punch.
GMOs represent a raw deal for family farmers the world over. Vandana Shiva puts it best.
