“This is why we must not buy genetically engineered crops. Monsanto & the Obama Admin are up to some very evil stuff.”

This conclusion has zero to do with the scientific finding of this body of work. Coating of seeds as no relationship on whether the seeds are genetically modified or not. Genetic modification is a fair subject for discussion as I am sure it has in previous FR posts but the commercial use of these seed types predates the Obama years by a decade or two. I used the word “radical” solely to distinguish it from the natural selection for desirable traits that farmers have been doing since they planted the first seeds umpteen thousands of years ago (ex. using the healthiest/best yielding plants as seed corn for the next years crop).

While you are correct that GE corn’s use predates Obama, it is a well-known fact that Monsanto has close ties to this White House, and that the Administration is paving the way for the widespread approval other GE crops.

While the insecticide has much to do with the kill-off of the bee population, it’s also logical to conclude that crops that self-terminate such as GE corn also wreak havoc on the population of insects such as bees.

You sound as if you see nothing wrong with GMO crops. I suggest you do some more research.
