Can we turn down the heat while turning on the light on the controversial issue of labelling (or not) GMO food products? Maybe: just use your app! An idea endorsed by two recent USDA secretaries and the NY Times Andrew Revkin and it makes sense! Will the anti-GMO crusaders agree? (hint: doubt it).
Genetically-engineered (biotech, GMO) crops are increasingly being utilized by farmers worldwide, with major benefits to them, and to consumers as well. One crop not being so developed: GMO wheat. Why is there none planted nor on the horizon?
A new survey of 1,000 adults finds widespread agreement with the FDA s position on (not) labeling food with GMO ingredients. It seems anti-biotech activists are just louder than everyone else but the public isn t buying it. Good for them.
Dr. Norman Borlaug is praised by President Obama, and in a letter to Norman s granddaughter, POTUS sings the praises as well of agricultural biotechnology GMOs to keep on with Borlaug s fight to feed a hungry world.
A world without GMO crops? A sadder, hungrier, less-green place. Thankfully, only an imaginary world...so far.
Greenpeace and other anti-GMO groups destructive activities have the effect of worsening hunger in the Third World, for no reason other than their own anti-science, anti-progress agendas. It's long past time to allow Golden Rice on the market. EFSA has voided Italy's nonsensical ban on GM corn--a good sign.
