After 25 years of genetically modified foods being grown and eaten throughout the world in billions of meals, not a single verified case of harm has resulted.
Biotechnology experts believe that this decision signals a big blow to the prospects of GM crop use in India, at least for the foreseeable future and have expressed grave concern for the advancement of crop technology in India.
Are efforts to make our food more “sustainable,” namely by using less pesticides and GMO’s, going to lead to better health and environmental quality? The answer is “No.”
On September 13, 2019 Cameron English posted the article, GMO, CRISPR-edited crops can cut pesticide use—if environmental activists do not block them. He explained that in 2017, the University of Florida plant geneticists Zhonglin Mou and Kevin Folta, announced a new method to fight common diseases in fruit plants. Their discovery could drastically reduce the use of fungicides if widely implemented by growers. Unfortunately, their methods may never be put to use as a result of the unwarranted controversy surrounding crop biotechnology. Scientists continue to make agriculture safer and more sustainable with the tools of modern genetics, but activists have waged [...]
FDA must no longer let organic food growers, manufacturers and sellers get away with lies.
