Productivity above all else
Industrial agribusiness, in its never-ending quest for productivity gains, has cut corners. Under the guise of "technological innovation", pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and GMO technology have been thrust upon us.
These technologies - supported with often spurious research and marketed as the new "normal" - were never designed to improve your health or wellbeing. They were designed to increase corporate profitability and shareholder wealth. And nothing more.
Research strongly linking pesticides with various forms of cancer, Parkinson's disease and diabetes, together with overwhelming evidence of an entrenched culture of corporate malfeasance within the largest corporations responsible for these technologies is proof that industrial agribusiness's "productivity above all else" mindset has failed us.
