I don't like GMOs. I think the best solution to our food problems is small, local, organic farms that use natural means of pest control such as hemp. I think Monsanto is a monster with too much power in various governments. All that said and I hate to criticize fellow anti-gmo advocates but it really needs to be said... it is entirely useless and counterproductive to arm ourselves with bad science. Natural News and other sites like it are trash and don't stand up to scrutiny as is obvious by just the first few posts. The science community scoffs at us, even the environmental science community because much of what is coming from our side is truly nonsense. We need to get smarter if we're going to change anything.

what do they expect when they breed a root excreteing defence system into all of their plants using glysophate.
And when bacteria started forming at these poison facilities they even bred that bacteria with plants to make they produce even more glysphate well at the same time being doused in glysophate.
You can't just chemically alter a plant to produce poison and cultivate bacteria and not expect that to effect humans.
One whould have to study the effects of Glysophate on humans and surrounding wildlife. Every seed monsanto carries that is *round up ready* would contain these genes.

These people are must be poised with keyboard and fingers at the ready to make sure they get their attacks on factual logic and premise into the first 1-2 replies to the OPs post.
Yep, and they'll make sure they get the last few posts too. But most people are wising up to them now, as can be seen by the number of stars you received.

Study Finds Monsanto’s GM Corn Nutritionally Dead, Highly Toxic
Then how come I aint dead ?
How come you aren't dead ?
People been eating GMO foods, and products made from them for near 20+ years.
Fear mongering is right.

HAHAHA... That is a good link.
They ARE freakin soil samples.
It is exactly this type of freakshow misinformation that keeps me from becoming anti-GMO. I have yet to see anyone from that side of the fence provide credible evidence against it. Until there is credible evidence I refuse to run with the sheep that insist it is harmful.
Just like on every issue I want to see the studies I want to see the evidence I refuse to follow just because someone "feels" it is harmful.
It really is sad so many people fall for the pile of manure (haha it is funny because they are soil samples) that gets passed of as evidence against GMOs. Honestly I couldn't care less about labeling if legislation passes that forces it that is fine. I am neither for nor against it for me it is a non-issue because I will buy the same stuff I always buy.

I think the reason the corn isn't as nutritious is because some of the GMO actually causes faster growth which means juicier corn with less nutrition per ounce. Another words, it is created to make it sweet and bigger with the same amount of nutrition in the yield. More yield, less nutrition per ear.
