My argument is there is not enough studies to prove that GMO is actually good for you.
There's no reason that the largest manufacturer or deadly chemicals should also be the largest manufacturer of GMO crops.
You do not want studies that show GM crops are better; you want studies that show they are poisonous!
There are dozens of breeders other than Dow and Monsanto who've developed highly successful and beneficial GM crops over the years. Google: "Castor
bean" and "Agriculture Department" to see some of what the US involvement is.
Top Ten Genetically Modified Crops
If you wanted evidence that GM crops are better, then you'd know that the Hawaiian papaya crop was saved 30 years ago by GMO, and has been so
sustained, ever since.
You'd know that more than 90% of U.S. canola, soybeans, corn, cotton and sugar beets are GM; and have been for decades!
You'd know that GM rice is grown around the world.
You'd know that GM crops have been bred for pest resistance, flood and drought resistance, pesticide and herbicide resistance, increased nutritional
value and as biofuels since the mid-to-late 20th Century.
If you've consumed vegetable oil during the last 20 years, you've consumed GM food.
An enlightened public doesn't fall for pseudoscience, illogic, fear and ignorance. It relies upon facts.
