It would not just be farmers growing this crap. Ever heard of wind blowing seeds or birds carrying them? The problem is so many of you are ignorant of
the reality of what is happening to farmers who are just trying to make an honest living. This would hit them way harder than the evil Monsanto.
No one hates GMO's more than me. This legislation would have created more problems than it would fix.
Well why don't you explain specifically why this would have hit farmer worse then Monsanto? You're not making any sense and quit saying you hate
GMO's worse then anyone and explain to us how allowing Monsanto to cultivate them in secret stops the seed from cross pollinating into other fields?
How does this help farmers?
By requiring labeling this allows consumers to vote with their feet and wallets and if they chose not to buy GMO's because they are properly
informed then the company will go out of business.
How is any farmer raising GMO crops making an honest living? How is allowing GMO fields to propagate and cross pollinate with non GMO fields without
having to tell anyone good in any way? Any non GMO farmer who knows their field is being cross pollinated and yet still sell their crop as non GMO is
no better then those willingly growing GMO...
Yeah it is going to be painful but a hell of a lot less painful then catastrophic failure in the food supply we are heading for if we do not stop this
now not to mention more cancer and disease GMO's cause.,..
I am sorry but you have either fallen for the Monsanto propaganda or are shilling for them. I would love to hear one good reason why GMO food
products should not be labeled period? All this crap about poor farmers and lawsuits is etc is just a distraction. Please show me specifically how
and where I am wrong?
I am a free market advocate and never trust government much less pay attention to the non-sense CA does. however this is a critical situation it is
bigger then a few farmers who will be hurt by it, it effects the whole planet and our entire future. These scum bags are corrupting the seed of the
earth. The winds and the birds will spread this seed world wide! And you think we should not label any food product that is GMO WTF? Are we friggen
crazy? We must be to allow this! Something has to be done even if it starts with a poor law on labeling for starters...
