We do? Which ones?
There are, or will be cases where the genetic modification itself is harmful, but we know for a fact the farming practices and chemicals enabled by GM foods are terrible for humans.
not in any of my post have I mentioned anything about Blackwater, lawsuits and such, or do you just group all NON-GMO people into one person?
Maybe I will when I have the time. But I don't think there will be anything there that hasn't been repeated many times.
Man you know what if you are not going to even watch the documentary then why reply?
I read that claim, yes. I've read a lot of things about Utopia.
And knowing that it came from wiki did you read HOW it WILL provide food for the Billions of people across the planet or you just make ignorant remarks?
Again, I agree with you. Monoculture presents tremendous problems and challenges. But we started down that road long before GMOs entered the picture. Saying "GMOs are bad, ban them!" is not a solution.
is that its not the plant problem but our ways of growing food.

Then why are there so many studies?
When a system( a private corporation) is for profit and closed & does not allow independent safety testing outside of the corporation it is just ridiculous to make such a unsupported statement.
BT corn for example:
What makes you think it is a complete list? Did you try other keywords? Do you really think that the EPA and USDA just said, "OK, sounds good. Go for it"?
Not one study in that entire list was hypothesized, programmed nor executed prior to the release of BT corn onto the market for human consumption. I find that odd don't you?
Actually, that is exactly how science works. Science operates on the priciple of falsification. The hypothesis that GMOs are not safe is not falsifiable. In other words it cannot be proven experimentally that they are perfectly safe no matter how much testing is done. On the other hand the hypothesis that GMOs are safe is falsifiable, if they are not safe it can be experimentally demonstrated.
The onus was on the original claim and claimant (Monsanto) to prove their CLAIM - BT CORN IS SAFE TO ENTER INTO THE FOOD CHAIN as is. The onus is not upon us, or anyone in this forum to prove that the corn or GMO's is/are dangerous. That is not how science works.
It's "safe" enough that it's approved for organic farming. So what next? What do you want to test for to "prove" that Bt corn is safe? How do you want to go about it...scientifically
