In the book The GMO Emperor Has No Clothes - A Global Citizens Report on the State of GMOs - False Promises, Failed Technologies, Dr. Vandana Shiva start with the following words:
"We have been repeatedly told that genetically engineered (GE) crops will save the world by increasing yields and producing more food. They will save the world by controlling pests and weeds. They will save the world by reducing chemical use in agriculture. They will save the world with GE drought tolerant seeds and other seed traits that will provide resilience in times of climate change."
This book, which is available as a free PDF document, takes a closer look at these allegations and expose what the use of GM-crops in agriculture really means for the environment, herbicide and pesticide use, food security and the biodiversity of our food crops.
