Nearly all cash crops are genetically engineered now, The Counter, 19 April 2021
More genetically engineered (GE) crops means more chemicals can be used on them, more toxic pesticides and herbicides. More land is contaminated. More people – farm workers, migrant workers, processors, consumers – are exposed. The chemicals have negative effects on the environment, on ecosystems, and on human health. GE industrial farming also encourages monocropping and reduces biodiversity. It’s the wrong direction.
