In Reply to: Damning Consequences Of GM - Final Report posted by Andreas from ( on Wednesday, June 04, 2003 at 3:17PM :

: 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.
