This is a new one to me. Right about the only thing I know about gmo and issues is with Monsantos round up ready patents, which do not allow for
heirlooming. As for negative health effects, that I know of, there are none.
What I do know, is that most countries opposed to gmo outside of the US, have tested it and have found no negative health effects either. Monsantos
round up weed killer and some of the other chemicals released into the environment on the other hand, ... think cancer. The one legitimate complaint
about it, is they say it (gmo) is unnatural,(three ears of corn from one stock and the like) and worry of it spreading through cross pollination; that
sounds more like a preference to me, dunno. Take that as you may but in my opinion, several gmo crops have some great ideas behind them, they just
require more monitoring and testing.
I personally prefer heirlooms and hybrids, but I do not mind when they put fish dna in food brand seeds that prevent freezing, or work with plant
breeding to create plants that require less water to grow and survive.
Thanks for the link op.
Dont forget, ask a farmer folks, Im sure if anyone knows, farmers will.
