Still, it is 100% true that if you eat even so much as a single meal containing even a small trace of a genetically modified food, you WILL die!

Eventually.

Of something...

My real problems are two fold. (1) Proper labeling so that you know and can choose GMO or not. (2) Monsanto/ADM is a very aggressive bully against farmers who choose not to use their product. If some of their pollen blows over in your field, then you owe them money. They will take you to court and farmers can’t afford to fight them.

I guess Europe has got it figured out.

If GMO crops are so wonderful, they should be proud to label them as GMO. I continue to be amazed that so-called conservatives could support a position that allows producers to withhold information from consumers.

Ask no questions. They’ll tell you all you need to know.

Well, this answers my concern, i.e. ingesting roundup will not harm you. Think I might go out now and buy a couple quarts for breakfast for me and the kids.

As someone already mentioned....if these GMO products are so wonderful....they would not mind at all to label them. That alone tells me this Free Trade Communist Globalist fluff piece is BS

GMO worshipers are as bad as the Global Warming NutJobs

GMO technology is re also producing some vastly expensive pending problems. Monsanto's "RoundUp Ready" genes have cross-pollinated both Poa annua (a grass) and Conyza canadensis (an astercae), two of the most promicuous families of aggressive weeds. In this habitat restorationist's view, this is a pending disaster, particularly for farmers and ranchers because plants in these families constitute some of their most pernicious weeds. Monsanto will eventually force me to buy ever more of their expensive product with this technology. I pay, they benefit.

For Monsanto deliberately and slowly to destroy the usefulness of glyphosate after the patent runs out and force customers (and with them the US taxpayers who enforced their patent monopoly for 34 years) then to buy their hot new and far more expensive patented alternative herbicides (which is what I have always thought Monsanto was doing with "RoundUp Ready") is, IMO, an eventual cause for class action compensation.

I don’t care how many studies are done on the matter. I am against GMO food products on principle. I don’t want them. It’s not what the good Lord provided in His natural way. The fact that this bothers some people (most of whom seem to benefit financially from GMOs) is not a concern for me.

I am allergic to GMO wheat and had to switch to natural spelt in the mid 1990’s. That was before I went low-carb, though.

Opposition to bio-engineered crops brought to you by the same folks who opposed irradiation, vaccination, nuclear power, and cooking, the poor dopes who believe in “vital force” and other detritus of the pre-scientific age.

No GMO for me as much as I can keep it away, and I know a fairly large group of educated professionals who are also staying away from it...

If it is so safe, why not label it? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Yet another reason Monsanto and GMO suck.
