Bill Gates promotes GMOs to reduce hunger

The new Gates Foundation public campus in Seattle

 

From Crosscut.com:

“But the [Gates] foundation doesn’t hesitate to defend programs that have come under attack by others working on similar problems. One example: the application of biotechnology in the form of transgenic or genetically modified disease-resistant seeds to small-farm agriculture. Genetically modified organisms are an incendiary topic in the development community and among those who promote organic foods. But the Gates Foundation believes they can make a big difference in many developing countries, where smallholder farmers make up the majority of the population and food costs consume up to half of family incomes. Bill Gates takes on GMO critics in his most recent annual letter and in a press interview.”
