Now imagine never knowing if the corn you were biting into contained pesticides or if the crop was in its last season because gastropod macroborers on a locust attack.
A total of 65% of all food in the united states already contains products from genetically engineered crops. The export products of Canada are trending in the same direction. So that’s less food for the species that are already hiding from fur trappers and weather related habitat loss.
