The current world population is estimated to be just over seven billion people. By 2050 an estimated nine billion people will be living on Earth. Feeding two billion more people is a matter of eminent concern.
How will this monumental task be achieved?
It won’t easy but I’m confident it will be done.
Let me preface my remarks by saying that based on the compelling research displaying their safety and efficacy I believe Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) should be a part of the solution in feeding the world. Nevertheless, I understand that thoughtful people disagree on this issue. I also acknowledge that opponents of GMOs are winning the public relations battle with many governments and consumers around the world. Major food producers, and even fast food chains, are now actively promoting their non-GMO status.
