Biodiversity, GMOs, and Privatization of the Living World

Biodiversity, GMOs, and Privatization of the Living World

The arrival of the first genetically modified plants in 1996 triggered a violent argument at both local and international levels between the advocates and opponents of GMOs. The former argue that this biotechnological revolution will save humanity from malnutrition and certain diseases while protecting the planet against environmental degradation, whereas the latter argue that it makes the world and humanity vulnerable to uncontrolled risks regarding food, loss of independence for small farmers and the loss of biodiversity.
