Be Aware!

It’s “GMO Awareness Week” at Mercola.com. To mark the occasion, Dr. Joe Mercola interviewed our own Ronnie Cummins on where the anti-GMO movement is now, and where it’s headed.

From the interview: 

"This combination of consumer rejection and, basically, Mother Nature's resistance, has caused a drop-off [in GMO crops]. I think this is the beginning of the end of at least this generation, the first generation, of GMO crops. Now, industry is saying, 'Don't worry about the fact that we're using more and more toxic pesticides and herbicides … Don't worry about these pests spreading across the fields. We've got a new generation of GMO crops where we can just do gene editing.

But the bottom line is that this gene-splicing and this so-called new gene editing are unnatural processes that disrupt the genetic structure, the natural workings of living organisms. These aren't going to work either."

Genetic engineering and gene-editing are part of a failing agriculture model, promoted by unethical profit-driven mega-corporations and propped up by government subsidies. How do we fix that?
