Degeneration Nation: GMOs, Toxic Chemicals and Factory Farms

Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Nearly half of America’s cropland is devoted to GMO crops, including over 140 million acres of GE corn, soybeans and cotton; 70 to 80 percent of supermarket, restaurant and school cafeteria processed foods are contaminated with GE corn, soy, canola, high fructose corn syrup and cotton seed/vegetable oil
  • Ninety percent of U.S. meat and animal products come from factory farms, where livestock are fed GE animal feed (corn and soy), and routinely given animal drugs and growth promoters
  • Unless we can shut down the factory farms, rebuild our soils, restore our watersheds and forests and get rid of the toxins, GMOs and greenhouse gases contaminating our bodies and our environment, mounting evidence suggests we may soon, perhaps in the space of one generation, pass the point of no return
  • Industrial, GMO-tainted, pesticide-laden, factory-farmed foods are bad for your health, bad for farm animals, bad for small farmers and farmworkers, bad for the environment and bad for the climate
  • Groups including the Organic Consumers Association, Beyond Pesticides and Food & Water Watch, have launched numerous lawsuits, suing companies for fraudulently labeling their products as natural, pasture-raised, ecofriendly or U.S.-made, when they are not
