How many Zeros follow Gazillion?(Kidding, it's not a number, as far as I know)
Hmmm, really? Peanut works, or a guy who helped Mexico grow more and save about 30 million, then went to India/Pakistan and tripled the out put of
the grain saving 100-250 million. Then he went into Communist China, risking his own behind, to help double the amount of rice made through
GE/Hybridization(sp?) and saving 1.1billion. Then went into War Torn Africa to save a few hundred million there. Not to mention how much is sold in
America, making it cheap for us to buy food, and Canada, and England, and wherever else it might be sold.
Some people, like Greenpeace and the church go on about mutations and side effects and other whiny crap like that. Here is a little something I
posted a couple months back.
Not to mention him helping todays youth by teaching at Texas College or whatever. Strange thing is, he isn't a billionaire. If he had a dollar for
every life he saved, he would be a multi-billionaire. It was at a !BILLION! in 1970, 35 years later....
Started by Norman Borlog
, the Nobel Prize winner for saving a Billion lives, GM, or GE crops are safe! Or else you would have a billion dead
people, not a billion saved people. I think if a billion people ate it, you would have noticed side effects, but there aren't. ALso, I know you
think(keyword, think) They just one day said "Hey, lets splice human DNA with a tomato and sell it to people." But that isn't what happened.
"You can't build a world of Peace on empty stomachs and human misery." Norman Borlog, Nobel Prize Winner, Savoir of a billion people.
BTW, he won it in 1970, so he probably has saved another billion lives by now.
THEY ARE TESTED! Don't listen to Greenpeace, they want to commit mass murder on over a billion people. GE crops are the MOST Tested/scrutinized(think
that's the word) crops EVER! Wanna know who tested/researched them?
EPA-Regulates if pesticides are involved
USDA-Where they are grown and how the Enviroment will be affected
AHA-Affects on Humans, which is NONE!
They go through many MILLIONS of dollars worth of testing a year to be approved as a commercial crop. Sorry, Greenpeace/other idiot activists may want
to kill a billion+ people, but until you find a billion+ people willing to starve to death, SHUT UP! These foods feed A BILLION+ A YEAR! China was
starving, but Norman Borlog comes in and saves the day with GE rice that quadruples the amount made.
So, until you are starving to death, don't tell others what they can and can't eat.
FDA? No comment on USDA, FFA, AHA, and the EPA? Nothing on the BILLION people? So, you don't like it, kill a billion people. You see, if it was bad,
if it had ANY side effects, a BILLION people is a huge freaking group. Most studies are done on a couple dozen people, but after DECADES of
research/study, after MILLIONS of dollars spent on research, they approved GE crops, and saved A BILLION PEOPLE!
All you people(not you Sar in particular) screaming it is bad because you said so, that it will make you mutate and have extra limbs or whatever, or
that we don't know what side effects it has, ARE WRONG! There are no side effects, there are no mutations, a BILLION people are proof. It's not like
they said "Hey, lets mutate people." and started selling nuclear waste as food, no, they had to do research, studies, and a bunch of Government
Programs making sure it didn't affect people, and so far been right. A Billion times right.
Sorry, let me make this clear, this isn't like "Well, we did s study on 3 people, and none of them showed any signs, sure they were all healthy
white males, so who knows about blacks, hispanics, women, asians, not as healthy people, but who cares, we did it on 3 people and no side effects."
It is "After years of research and study, after a BILLION people, no side effects, no mutations, no deaths, NOTHING!"
You can't say "It might hurt you" when a BILLION people have been eating it for DECADES and have NO SIDE EFFECTS! How hard is it to understand! Ok
so this Mon group are assholes, what big business isn't? They are nothing to Exxon who drilled a lake for oil. There wasn't none, there was a salt
mine, the people were WORKING the salt mine, told them there was a salt mine, but Exxon didn't care. After they were done the Gulf of Mexico was
lower by inches, and the town died. Why? The salt mine and lake were the main means of making money, everything revolved around those, but Exxon
destroyed both. See? Big Business are all assholes, but SAVING A !BILLION PEOPLE! ISN'T!
If we were to only grow food organically , we wouldn't have enough for 2 billion
Also, to note, many people are allergic to peanut butter/peanuts/any peanut product. How many people are allergic to GE Foods? You can't tell the
difference, well, except GE foods require less posions and produce more. I'll go find my links on this...
Those are things like millions saved by not needing to buy as much pesticide, thus enviroment safer, people safer, so forth.
Oh, and somewhere in that mess is how if we didn't have GE Foods, only enough to feed 4billion people. I don't see 2 billion volunteers to die of
So, a !BILLION! in 1970, and another 2 !BILLION! now, that is 3 !BILLION!+ people. Over 3 billion people saved by this man. More money then the
Olsen Twins, Tom Cruise, and Adam Sandler combined. Yet the man is like George Washington, has the chance to be delcared King of America, and is
humble, he decides not to make billions off of the people he saves, he decides to live his life teaching others.
If that isn't a great person, IDK what is. Jesus has nothing on him, even more since he Norman is real.
