: Why GM-Free?
: 1.. GM crops failed to deliver promised benefits
: a.. No increase in yields or significant reduction in herbicide and pesticide use
: b.. United States lost an estimated $12 billion over GM crops amid worldwide rejection
: c.. Massive crop failures of up to 100% reported in India
xxx Also, I have been suspicious that some agricultural industries were excited to use the developing world as a *testing ground* for growing their GM products & consuming the products. It's disgusting. These industries take advantage of helpless populations this way.
