GRAB - Persistent narratives, persistent failures: Why GM crops do not—and will not—“feed the world”
Keywords:GMOs, persistent narratives
It has been almost two decades since genetically modified (GM; also called genetically engineered or GE) crops were first commercialized in North America, and anywhere from five to ten years since they have been grown in various countries in the Global South. Though short, their entire history has been a controversial one. In fact, debate about their potential environmental and health impacts, their predicted success in increasing yields and incomes, and the corporate control that accompanies them, was spirited even before the first GM crop was ever commercialized, and remains heated today.
