GMOs have not saved that many people
Well, according to the the Nobel commity, they DID!
Two Words: **Norman Borlaug **
… GMOs COULD feed a whole lot of people, but GMOs DO NOT feed a whole lot of people more. In fact, we could produce as much food without having them being genetically modified. The fact is that crops are not distributed evenly, it’s just cheaper for the West. So what’s the point of using GMOs if they aren’t used the way the pro-GMOs say they are?
There’s an overproduction of crops all over the Western Hemisphere (actually, France has had a rise of 17% of crops this year, for example) but that still doesn’t feed all the hungry children in Africa…because they are going to be left to rot instead… So. GMO’s as a palliative until there’s a better solution for the hungry ones, but no GMOs just to have a higher production for less money (ie: I don’t like hyper-capitalism and I’m proud of it)
Again, you are arguing supply, not food.
GMO’s allows to double yeilds and create food in harsher climates, so do food you do grow can feed more people. 14 million in africa face starvation, the fact is food is given to them! ITS GIVEN! But the goverments refuse, afraid of completle groundless facts. Again, its easy for goverment offcials to refuse when they are not the one who are starving. So its their goverment refusing UN Food aid! Their companies are afraid to lose control, its not all one sided capitalism. The african goverments are guitly as well, and so is green peace and whatever other organization wich protest on unfounded information.
Its easy to be against it when you are not the one who is starving…
hu-hu. And why do we give the corn a “friendly little boost” if they can do fine on their own? What gives us the right to favor corns to bugs? And when the bugs evolve (way more rapidly) to keep up with their alter-ego corn, what tells you that we’re not destroying the ecosystem? Nature has a delicate balance, all we’re doing is tipping it to one side without balancing the other, and that is bound to mess the whole thing up.
Unfounded information, you are just speculating, we can all stand around and say “what if” but you or I have no right to be up on a moral horse when fellow humans are starving to death and say they have no right to eat because of potential unfounded claims.
We are already exporting alot of food, GMO’s allow the food to grow in harsher climates with more yeilds.
GMO’s already saved hundreds of millions of people, if not Billions!
If Greenpeace and organization like it had its way, those people would have been dead!
