Why we fight for a GMO-free world

by Andrew Kimbrell, Center for Food Safety

“For those of us who have a true sense of wonder and love for the natural world, and a vision of a new relationship with it, that’s what we love.

And when we see the kind of horrific technological manipulation represented by biotechnology; when we see what it does to the bodies of salmon or the bodies of animals, or when we understand that they’ve somehow turned a corn plant into a poison for butterflies and caddisflies and potentially for bees; when we realize that they’ve actually changed the heredity of corn and soy so they can withstand ever more and more chemicals; when we see all that, it’s an assault on something that we love.

So we respond, not for the sake of attack, but because things that we value and love are being attacked. Anybody would feel that way with their child or pet or anything they care about.”

  1. Yes, yes, yes! For freedom re: food and what our bodies are made of! For the health of the soil of land neighboring GMO crops, for climate change solution-crafting, for protection of our low-income families who cannot afford real food!
