Myth: Feed the World
Producers of GMO products and governments have said GM crops were needed to feed the world.
GM crops have not increased yield, but have increased the use of pesticides tremendously. Some GM plants even generate their own pesticides. GM foods are linked to cancers, organ failure, obesity, sterility, birth defects, autism, and allergies.
GMO crops depend on heavy use of pesticides proven to affect our health, pollute water, air and deplete soils.
38% of agricultural lands worldwide are designated degraded.
GMO and pesticides pollute underground water, streams, the air, and the soil.
