As we get further and further away from January 1st, those well-intentioned New Year's Resolutions get further and further in the rearview mirror. Did you make a resolution? Maybe to lose weight? Maybe to eat better? Maybe to have a better work/life balance? Maybe to stop getting into arguments with family and friends with politics?
Here's a question: how many people have already broken their resolutions? A lot?
Here's one resolution that is easy to keep, and one that you can actively work on throughout the year: Resolve to get the facts about GMOs and modern agriculture.
There's so much information about GMOs on the Internet and in the media that it's hard to know what's true and what's fake news.
So here are some great resolutions that you can keep:
- Resolve to learn about the safety of GMOs
- Resolve to learn about the environmental benefits of GMOs
- Resolve to learn how GMOs help farmers
- Resolve to learn about the consumer benefits of GMOs
- Resolve to learn how Golden Rice can help children in developing countries
- Resolve to learn how farmers in Africa are desperate for access to the technology
- Resolve to learn who is spreading anti-GMO misinformation
- Resolve to learn how the GMO papaya saved the Hawaiian papaya industry
Most of all, resolve to check sources, look for verifiable information, and not contribute to the spread of misinformation in 2020. That's one resolution that we can all agree on!
