Survey: Can GMOs Increase Our Food Supply?


Yesterday we quoted Barbara Kingsolver: "we have in every part of the world lost control of our food systems to agribusiness… [Monsanto has] quite systematically removed seed banks, have contaminated [and] diminished the genetic material that all people in the world have with which to feed themselves, and it’s a terrifying problem."

Also yesterday, Monsanto promised to "develop by 2030 new strains of corn, soybeans and cotton that can yield twice as much grain and fiber per-acre while consuming just two-thirds the water."If we succeed in doubling yields, it absolutely changes the opportunity for food availability," [CEO Hugh] Grant said.
