Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Governor, today called for a ban on the planting of genetically modified crops in New York State. The Greens have previously drafted state legislation to impose a five year moratorium on the planting of such crops.

“Americans have become guinea pigs for the biotechnology industry due to the negligence of federal and state  policies to protect consumers. Genetic engineering represents nothing less than a going-out-of-business sale on genetic diversity.  GMOs should not be released into the environment since there is no adequate scientific understanding of their impact on the environment and human health,” said Hawkins.
