On April 2, 2014 the Policy Director for the Center for Food Safety, Elizabeth Kucinich, published an article on Huffington Post titled Monsanto: The Enemy Of Family Farmers. In the very first paragraph of the article she writes:
After years of work by scientific public interest organizations such as Center for Food Safety and governmental bodies such as the United Nations, consumers around the world are becoming aware of the dangers of industrial, chemical-based agriculture. The most legitimate science and research bodies recommend turning toward organic and sustainable agriculture, shunning genetically engineered (GE or GMO) products and the chemicals they are designed to promote. Yet despite the U.N.’s assessment that sustainable agriculture is the way to feed the world’s growing population, U.S. government agencies continue to support the biotechnology industry and its pesticide-promoting crops as the path forward. But the message is failing — even with the backing of the U.S. government and a barrage of advertising from companies like Monsanto.
