Like a broken record, Monsanto and its many minions recycle the lie that without GMO chemical agriculture, the world will starve. It’s a myth that’s been busted over and over again, by credible sources, including the United Nations Commission on Trade and Development 2013 report

The latest group to take on Big Biotech’s Big Lie? The Environmental Working Group (EWG) in its new report: “Feeding the World: Think U.S. Agriculture Will End World Hunger? Think Again.”

EWG analyzed U.S. food exports, and found that less than 1 percent go the 19 countries with the highest levels of undernourishment. From the report’s conclusion:

Today, most agricultural exports from the United States go to countries whose citizens can afford to pay for them. Meat and dairy products, along with animal feed, accounted for 50 percent of all U.S. agriculture exports to the top 20 destinations in 2015. Most of the top importers of U.S. exports had very high or high human development scores, and low levels of hunger. Agricultural exports from the U.S. chiefly meet the demand for more meat and more diverse diets from already affluent countries, or those with growing personal wealth.

So much for feeding the world.
