If we were really concerned about feeding populations, and not the almighty dollar, we could start a country-wide program dropping blueberry, raspberry, salmonberry seed, etc. and coat our entire lands with food-bearing plants.
Yea,I've read where studies show that gmo crops do not increase the yields of crops,and your right,they are a bunch of scammers, thieves, bullies and I could go on and on.
What they have done to our food and the farmers is such a crime and shame,and what gets me is the law of the land is letting them get away with it.This is just one of many complaints I have with our system and government......don't get me started!!I stay away from gmo products as much as possible but it's starting to look as though there may not be a choice in the matter.We need to make a stand against these crooks and thieves...........
Also read about corn syrupbecause most of it comes from GMO corn and is in almost everything sweet that you eat or drink in the US. I have lost 40lbs of fat since I quit consumtion of products sweetened with corn syrup.
Very good reasoning. GMO is in your point of view any cultural organism. This is say technological point of view. There is also legal point of view. Specific sequences of genom are copyrighted, patented and if they are found in yours field you are bloody pirate! Doesn't matter that you never ever heard about Monsanto or other f# corp. On your field was found patented sequence so pay negro!
Another point is how current mainstream GM industry work = TOTAL monoculture (just see GM ads). Pressure of monoculture bathing in pesticide will select entities resistent to particular pesticide. This was the reason to ban DDT.
Now our crops are producing "DDT". Corporate model of usage of GM have same level of responsibility which we can observe around Chernobyl disaster. GM can be (relatively) save as nuclear power plant can be. But there is huge risk. Are corporations responsible? NO. Just look at law.
Actually, that's a brilliant way to fight back against GMO. Nationwide project to sow natural seeds everywhere!
No, that really won't solve a thing. Modern crops are pretty much incapable of being successful in 'nature' - they have been tailored to be cultivated crops since we began cultivating. Many cultivated plants require far too much water in consistent quantities to survive without attention from man. Most will simply be over-run by weeds and other plants in nature. Crowded out, they will not fruit, not reproduce, and thus die.
Even genetically altered crops would suffer the same fate. Crops are not intended to be tossed to the wind and left to see what grew over the past three months.
