[EMBARRASS, Minn., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/]
Farm For Profit Research and Development Inc., the nation's leader in
sustainable agriculture, today announced that its Board of Directors
has unanimously adopted a resolution condemning the sale, cultivation,
growth, harvest and/or consumption of genetically modified crops. Such
crops, referred to as GMOs, include: Round-Up Ready Soybeans, Bt Corn
and Round-Up Ready Cotton, among others.
Farm For Profit President, Howard Vail, announced the Board's action,
stating, "The dramatic increase in the development, marketing and sale
of genetically modified seed and crops has far more to do with
inflating corporate profits than with the sustainability of America's
family farmers or the health of its consumers. Consumers worldwide have
clearly and unequivocally expressed their adamant opposition to the use
of genetically modified crops in the foods they consume unless and
until long-term research has been conducted on their effect on the
health and immune systems of humans, particularly our children," he
continued. "The absence of consumer demand and international government
opposition has resulted in massive stockpiles of these unwanted
products which has depressed commodity prices for all family farmers --
even those raising real, unadulterated crops," Vail asserted.
