They have not saved millions of lives. In fact it has not delivered any sizeable gain in food production for the world, most of which has still been done by traditional methods per my reading. The world can still be fed without GMO products. This type of propaganda is from Monsanto and vested interests.

As usual, you have no clue what you're talking about. We have absolutely been using GMOs for decades. Any product you buy that has high fructose corn syrup comes from GMO corn. Two of the enzymes used to make HFCS, alpha-amylase and glucose-isomerase, are genetically modified to make them more stable. GMO corn is cheaper and produces far more yield, so it's the perfect choice for HFCS. Good luck finding food at your supermarket that doesn't contain HFCS.

GMOs have already had a dramatic effect on many countries in the world. The Hawaiian papaya industry would be completely gone today, were it not for GMO improvements.

Another really good example is the Casava in Africa. It's a major food staple in Africa, but the plant isn't very nutritional. We've already seen incredible results with making GMO Casava to provide the essential nutrients needed to make a huge difference in malnutrition in Africa.

GMOs are in everything, and they have been for a long time. And that's going to keep increasing.
