Do you know that GMO modified grains are modified to withstand weed killers like roundup so they can maximize production?
Guess where the chemicals of roundup endup?
The Lies You're Told about Genetically Engineered Foods
The featured article summarizes the evidence presented, which shows that genetically engineered (GE) crops:•Are laboratory-made, using technology that is totally different from natural breeding methods, and pose different risks from non-GE crops
•Can be toxic, allergenic or less nutritious than their natural counterparts
•Are not adequately regulated to ensure safety
•Do not increase yield potential
•Do not reduce pesticide use but increase it
•Create serious problems for farmers, including herbicide-tolerant "superweeds", compromised soil quality, and increased disease susceptibility in crops
•Have mixed economic effects
•Harm soil quality, disrupt ecosystems, and reduce biodiversity
•Do not offer effective solutions to climate change
•Are as energy-hungry as any other chemically-farmed crops
•Cannot solve the problem of world hunger but distract from its real causes - poverty, lack of access to food and, increasingly, lack of access to land to grow it on
