Myth: It’s Too Late—GMOs are Here to Stay

September 1, 2014
Category: GMO Fact Check

Biotech companies would have consumers believe that, like it or not, GMOs are a permanent fixture, and that our food system would simply not work without GMOs.
This is nothing more than a myth spread by biotech companies to discourage consumer activists: over 60 countries currently ban the cultivation, importation, or sale of GMO products. If industrialized countries like Switzerland and Japan can thrive without GMOs, American can too.
Unfortunately, biotech companies are also trying to sell these GMO-free countries on the “here to stay” myth: Japan is currently being pressured to accept the “inevitability” of GMO wheat by American, Canadian, and Australian trade groups.
