This report from Friends of the Earth International reveals the failure of genetically modified crops around the world, and how statistics showing their increase in Europe have been manipulated.

It explains how the rising grain prices behind the world food crisis have allowed biotech giants like Monsanto to dramatically increase the price of GM seeds and chemicals they sell to farmers.The findings of the report support a comprehensive United Nations assessment of world agriculture which concluded that GM crops have very little potential to alleviate poverty and hunger.
