Viewpoint: GM vs organic crops — How to feed the world without destroying it – Genetic Literacy Project

There are more and more people in the world who are getting richer and are therefore eating more and more meat. For some it is clear that agriculture must massively expand its production.

The politics of wheat: As agriculture becomes a weapon of war, biotechnology emerges as a strategic tool for the West – Genetic Literacy Project

Is the world facing “a potential mass starvation event” due to the war in Ukraine? It is starting to look that way. Vladimir Putin is weaponizing food and America is losing wheat as a tool of statecraft to counter it.

Viewpoint: Millions face food insecurity. Following ‘green hysteria’ in rejecting pesticides and fertilizers will make this crisis worse – Genetic Literacy Project

From 2023, the European Union will allocate 25 per cent of its direct agriculture payment budget to “eco-payments” for carbon and organic farmers. They do this as the world experiences historic starvation levels.

The bioengineered label replacing GMO claims has been in place for four months. Here’s what we know – Genetic Literacy Project

You may have recently noticed new labels on some of your food. As of January 1st, 2022, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires food companies to label their genetically-engineered foods as “bioengineered.”  What effect will this have on consumer acceptance of these products?Food labels create confusion over what’s considered “safe” and “healthy” food. They all represent different things, and some are just a clever way to increase the product’s price or reputation. So, what makes this “bioengineered” label special, and why is this change happening now? Let’s start by taking a look at the GMO label of the past.The ‘Non-GMO’ LabelThe Non-GMO Project, a nonprofit based in Bellingham, Washington, was created in 2007 and is responsible for the “non-GMO” butterfly label that we see on many of our foods. The premise is that consumers should know how their food was grown. However, in many cases, the non-GMO label has been used to influence the consumer’s thinking that GMOs are unhealthy and non-GMO is better for them.Fear is a great motivator and in this case, people were scared of harming their health by eating GMOs. This is similar to how many consumers associate organic as the only food choice for long-term health and sustainability
