resisiting gmos - latest

The potential dangers of GMOs to human health, the environment, food sovereignty and biodiversity have not been clearly established and yet they are already to be found in our food. Friends of the Earth International demands the implementation of strict controls surrounding the production and labelling of GM foods in order to protect consumers, small farmers and the environment at large.

Disease-resistant GM crops are practically non existent, and are grown on a tiny scale."
