GMOs are disastrous
August 20, 2015
Having just read the article titled "Technology is not the enemy, hunger is" by Lucas Lentsch in the August 1, 2015, paper, I feel obligated to share my concern.
GMOs threaten the diversity and purity of seed which will leave disastrous affects (Mr. Lentsch failed to mention this side of the equation). the need for GMO crops is being promoted in the name of battling world hunger and is a prime scare tactic by special interests and mega biotech companies whose only interest is not the welfare of the people but rather to ensure their income keeps flowing for years to come. America and the world (thankfully some parts of the world already has) needs to wake up and realize this is not what we want for ourselves and our children.
I am surprised that Tri-State Livestock News printed such an article and hope to never see it printed in your paper again.
