GMOs are an extension of chemical agriculture: developed and sold by synthetic pesticide production and seed monopolizing companies such as Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer Crop Science and Scotts.

In the U.S., GMOs are in as much as 80% of conventional processed food.

Nearly 50 countries, including Australia, Japan, Peru and all of the European Union, have significant restrictions or outright bans on the production and sale of GMOs.

Experimentation on the social and environmental hazards of GMO’s are lacking!

Possible risks of GMO’s could include:
Alteration of unique biodiversity of heritage crops which have ecological, social, economic and scientific values. (CEC 2004)

Creation of more vigorous pests and pathogens and intensification of their effects through hybridization in relation to GMO’s; harm to nontarget species such as soil organisms, beneficial insects and birds. (Snow, A., D. 2005)

Realizing Social Effects:  Loss of food independence, migration and concentration of agribusiness. (Pengue, W.A. 2005)
