An insidious and underhand way that the governments are overcoming the regulations on GM. Also they have sent letters to Monsanto and Dow Chemicals actually telling them of pathways through the regulations which can be used.

GM Foods Grow Up
With help from robots and new genetic tricks, farmers could feed the planet while dodging the controversy

I don't see the problem with genetically modifying food. Every argument against it as akin to science-hating religious fervor and fact-deficient diatribe.

If there are legal ways to get around existing policy, then Monsanto and everyone else has as much right to exploit that as any other industry. Is it ethical? That's another discussion.

If you don't have a problem with it that means you don't know enough about it. Your body doesn't even know what the stuff is, and it contains almost no nutrients. Keep digging you will change your mind. It causes cancer and tumors too, but eat up!

Well I certainly won't be "reading up" using the sources YOU'VE learned from. "Almost no nutrients"? Altering a berry's genetic structure to be more resilient to colder climates removes vitamins? News to me. Can you show me scientifically how that works?

When you see animals refusing to eat something they'd normally eat? It's nature's way of saying:



Animals don't care about politics and they don't care about opinions. They just want food that is food.



Like I've said before...when they play God with food, they invite the Devil to the dinner table. He seems to make himself right at home too.

I don't have a problem with genetically modified food either. Most every organism is genetically modified to some point.

I have a problem with trans-species (transgenic) modified organisms, with little to no long term studies published on the effects of ingestion - and the ecological effects of the transgenic organisms, and their implications to life around them.

its more than just that they are making food with pesticides in so do you not see the danger in that either
