Living.Loving. Caring,And Awake!👀

Ask me anything   Submit  

Trying to find my place in this big world of ours. And a little bit of everything. I Love Jesus and everything that's Beautiful in this world. I enjoy being barefoot, I am a positive person most of the time we all have our moments right.... But You cannot have a Positive life with a Negative mind. My blog is whatever is on my mind at that time. Sometimes I am completely random. But I do have my favorites. This is who I am take it or leave it. :) Oh yeah and I also Love Sunflowers. 😊🌻

People who say GMO helps fix world hunger are wrong.
Genetically Modified Crops are restricted to a select handful of countries.
GMO crops are used primarily for animal feed and fuel
- US: over 50% GMO - Brazil & Argentina: 30% GMO - China: 3% GMO - India: 3% GMO - EU: 0.21% GMO
Most developing/poverty stricken countries have no access to GMO foods due to patents made by companies such as Monsanto and Syngenta The people who hold patents hold the right to say “Who plants what, and who sells what around the world”
Generally GMO foods/seeds are not engineered for sustainability and yield. However pesticide resistance does help with the aforementioned, it is not intended for that
"Genetic engineering causes centralization of food genes instead of diversification" - Agriculture at Crossroads 2008
This means that our food isn’t diverse genetically, causing prices to rise and monopolies to continue their hungry rule on seeds
"Evidence is emerging of herbicidal and insecticidal resistance in crop weeds and pests associated with GMO crops" - Agriculture at Crossroads and World bank 2008
"Glyphosate (a very powerful and common pesticide) tolerance in corn, soy and rice have increased herbicide use by 383 million pounds in the USA alone" - Union of Concerned Scientists Report November 2009 
Several States for example Georgia have had to abandon pieces of land due to Glyphosate resistant plants!
This means that because the land is so resistant to pesticides, it has an uncontrollable amount of weeds!
Summary: GMO in its /current/ state is only hurting us, I have yet to find to research proving its harmful to consuming GMO food, however the same goes for the opposite. I’m staying away from GMO all together mostly in protest of these monopolies.
