(5-24-13) Did you hear about the 800 esteemed scientists who came together and demanded the production of genetically modified crops and products be stopped?
Scientists who called on world powers to re-evaluate the future of agriculture and seek sustainability rather than corporate profits?
Don't be surprised if you haven't, as the mainstream media won't touch this one.
Eight-hundred scientists did make such a demand. They made it first over a decade ago and they have updated it over the years, adding signatures and release dates. Still global powers have all but ignored their calls.
The Institute of Science in Society is a non-profit group of scientists from around the world, dedicated to bringing an end to what they refer to as the "dangerous GMO experiment". In their open letter to the world, they have highlighted why governments need to stop genetically modified crops now â€“ before there are irreversible effects on the health of the people and the health of the earth at large.
