What are the Environmental Risks?
Once GM plants are released into the environment they cannot be controlled or recalled.
Genetic pollution is irreversible living pollution that self-replicates. Contamination of other
plants is a major problem because the genes from any crop can move, via seed and pollen flow. GM crops are resulting in increased pesticide use, herbicide tolerant weeds, and the expansion of industrial farming. Click here for more information on environmental impacts.
