Hawaii and the Anti-GMO Movement

Hawaii and the Anti-GMO Movement

Unknown - 2014
Rate this:
Hawaii is at the center of the fight over genetically modified organisms (GMOs)-and the food people are eating all over the United States. Because of Hawaii's favorable climate, plant breeders and food companies do huge amounts of research and seed development there, including modifying and transforming crops via biotechnology. Local and international activists say that the crops are potentially harmful and can contaminate the rest of Hawaii's agriculture, while seed companies and scientists insist that their fears are unproven and based on emotional reactions. The battle over GMOs will likely turn on questions of safety and property rights: Are GMO foods safe for human consumption? And who gets to decide how cropland is used-voters or landowners?
