It isn't nearly as complicated as you make it seem. Monsanto already labels them as GMO when they sell them to the farmers correct? So what's so hard about keeping them separate from non-GMO's from that step onward and eventually into the store? All it would take is a simple check list and segregation of GMO and non-GMO foods that could happen all the way down the line to the stores.
Just because it has been certified doesn't mean it's safe.
I guess since cigarettes are legal, that mean there are no health risks associated with them?
A new study shows that low doses of Bt biopesticide CryA1b as well as the glyphosate herbicide, Roundup, kill human kidney cells. The Bt biopesticide conferring insect resistance and the glyphosate tolerance trait tied to the use of glyphosate herbicides account for almost all the GM crops grown worldwide. Bt crops already constitute 39 % of globally cultivated genetically modified (GM) crops, yet this is the first study that provides evidence on the toxicity of Bt protein in human cells.
I wonder if any of the original signers have changed their opinion after 13 years with no disastrous results of the "experiment". I wonder if they all think a moratorium still makes any sense.
Let me guess, this is "bad science" in your opinion. Surprise.
This study indicates that Bt toxins are not inert on human cells, and may indeed be toxic.
Extensive testing does. You want testing but when it shows something is safe, you reject it. Surprise.

Both of which started before GMOs existed.
Then there is the growing pest and weed resistance factors, what will nature do to recover?
Problems could result if, for example, herbicide-resistance genes got into weeds.
Do you know how herbicide resistance develops? And again. It started before there were GMOs.
