For some reason, over the last few days I’ve heard a lot of people criticizing GMOs for not increasing crop yields.

For almost two decades, global crop biotech has held a steady growth. Perhaps, unsurprisingly, the developing world now leads the rest of the world in growing ‪#‎GMO‬ crops.

A history lesson on innovation: Research and scientific breakthroughs helped U.S. farmers in the fledgling Corn Belt (Grain Belt) of the 1920s and 30s and today, the same breakthroughs are helping break world records for corn yields. With such a high potential to help us feed the world while also protecting the planet, why so much push back?

Organic production greatly reduces the yield of crops compared to conventional farming practices. This accounts for the increased cost of organically grown foods. Furthermore, this is no valid research that shows organic food to be healthier than conventionally grown foods.

Dubious research supports claims that organic systems can close the yield gap with conventional (and GMO) farming. Obsession with organic farming distracts from more sustainable solutions—Conservation Agriculture.

Between 2000 and 2010, household spraying and insecticide-treated bednets prevented the deaths from malaria of an estimated 831,100 children in 43 countries, according to a recent model—almost 230 a day. Insecticide resistance in mosquitoes threaten these gains.

Charlatans like Food Babe, Dr. Oz, Joseph Mercola, and Vandana Shiva represent everything disgraceful about unscientific propaganda. Cancer misinformation is among the most tragic unscientific rhetoric. What you deem “healthy” and what experts deem healthy are vastly different. What they’re doing boils down to victim-blaming and fear-mongering.

I see people who are anti-GMO criticizing the anti-vaxxers. It's hilariously hypocritical. So I made this.

"Scientists are withdrawing from the public conversation about #GMOs. I fear that the embarrassment of a poster boy for science communicators will hasten the process, and those who step back will be those with less hardened positions on the GMO spectrum." So, what should and could be done to prevent the real scientists from leaving debates about scientific topics?
