GMOs, Business, and Corruptionby Garth Davis, MD on July 14, 2015
From yesterday’s New York Times, a great article about the business interests and corruption surrounding the efforts to promote GMOs:
The G.M.O. experiment, carried out in real time and with our entire food and ecological system as its laboratory, is perhaps the greatest case of human hubris ever. It creates yet another systemic, “too big too fail” enterprise — but one for which no bailouts will be possible when it fails.
Kudos to authors Mark Spitznagel and Nassim Nicholas Taleb for their evidence-based, rational, and courageous stance.
We don’t need GMOs in order to feed the world. We need a return to a sustainable, plant-based diet.
