Who benefits from GM crops?

Who benefits from GM crops? An industry built on myths.
28 March 2014

Our relationship with food and the way in which we farm is under increasing pressure. Extreme weather events, a changing climate and a growing population are putting the food sovereignty of communities at risk. At the same time health experts have raised serious questions about our modern diet.

The way we farm and feed the world needs fundamental change. The biotech industry is claiming to offer exactly that. But this report examines the reality of GM crop production worldwide, and drawing evidence from the experiences of small farmers and the communities who live with GM, separates facts from fiction.

Chinese government refusing USA’s GMO corn and now soy

Chinese Ministry States: GM Soybeans Harm Health of China’s 1.3 Billion People. Chinese ‘Science & Technology Abstracts Newspaper’ under the leadership of China’s State Science & Technology Ministry, published a paper that may deeply damage the Biotech industry worldwide. The published paper, titled ‘Must face up to the harm caused by imported GM soybeans to the health of 1.3 billion Chinese people’ was written by Lieutenant General Mi Zhenyu, Vice President of the Academy of Military Science. The paper calls for China to adopt strong preventative measures to assure bottom line protection for the life safety and health safety of the Chinese people. Over many months, China has recently rejected over 1.5 million metric tons of GMO corn due to safety concerns, at a cost of $2.9 billion to U.S. agriculture. China is the largest importer of U.S. grown GMO soy and the main export market for GM soybean farmers in all GM soybean producing countries. The economic impact on our farmers, who have been sucked onto the GM Ag chemical treadmill, and our economy is mindboggling. Down doobie, doo, down down… are GMOs finally going down?
