Post GMO suppose to end world hunger

The biggest dream pushed by proponents for GMO is end world hunger. The irony is there is no food shortage. In the not-so-distant past, our government paid farmers to not grow food until the controversial Earl Butz came along and said screw that; grow big or gtfo. He helped out the farmers but not the consumers at the grocery store (here and here). The real tragedy is 30-50% of the worlds food is thrown out by us, the consumers, and the food industry (here, here, and here). The less affluent, the target group for the feed the world campaign, simply can't afford food (here). In short, food is politics and business. If we can't sell it, we'd rather throw it away.

I thought it was for sturdier wood for construction. It's the exact opposite. They want weaker trees. And GE trees is also for food bearing trees like apples, oranges, and walnuts. Like GMO corn, GE trees will create pesticides internally and/or be Roundup resistant. Watch the video for the full report.

  1. I read some folks hatched Trader Jo’s Fertile eggs!
    I saw some fertile brown chicken eggs at Uwajimaya yesterday for $4.99/dz.
    Very tempted.
    All of my last batch of Costco’s Organic eggs were also fertile.
    Some of the Egglands Best also that way. Hmmmm
    Maybe it is a Spring thing??? Fertile eggs everywhere except for in my duck’s nest.
    She went broody over 2 blue easter eggs…hahaha
    But that would be an inexpensive way to hatch some eggs.
