GOOD just reported on the GMO stats released from International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications. The stats outline the world according to genetically modified crops. The Economist turned the stats into a map which illustrates that the US is leading the pack in a big way with 66.8 million hectares or 165 million acres of GMO crops currently being cultivated. This is a 7 million, yes, 7 million acres increase from just two years ago. It's sad that we've already traveled so far down this road without even knowing the repercussions.
Other countries in the mix included Brazil with 25.4 million hectares GMOs cultivated, Argentina with 22.9 million, and India with 9.4 million. Europe is virtually free of GMO crops with the highest percentages at .1 million hectares and so is Mexico, Chile, Costa Rica, Columbia, Bolivia, and Honduras.
