The Atheists In Kenya Society would like to state categorically that we welcome and support the importation of GMO maize as a way of tackling food insecurity in Kenya.
There is no credible evidence of harm from GMOs. On the contrary, GM crops have been shown to have more impact in countries like India and Brazil. In a country such as ours, where farm inputs, like fertilizers, farm equipment, and pesticides are becoming harder to afford for our farmers, we believe that GM crops have more to offer.
GMOs are not poison. We should see them as a toolkit for combating food insecurity.
The perceived ills of genetically modified foods are illusory and far smaller than believed.
