Heinemann’s group found that between 1985 and 2010, Western Europe has experienced yield gains at a faster rate than North America for all three crops measured. That means that the U.S., which grows mostly GE corn, and Canada, which grows mostly GE canola, are not doing as well as Europe, which grows non-GE corn and canola. The increases in corn yields in the U.S. have remained relatively consistent both before and after the introduction of GE corn. Furthermore, Western Europe is experiencing faster yield gains than America for non-GE wheat.
Monsanto publicists claim they are all about “feeding the world.” They are lying of course. It’s all about controlling the food supply.
The best thing any of us can do to fight this, and save ourselves, is to grow our own food or at least purchase fruits and vegetables at local farmers markets.
