LOL Ok, I guess YOU don't know what GMO means for pete's sake.
It is injecting insecticides and herbicides into the genetics of the plant, to make them resistant. Did someone inject you, to give you your X linked
And them doing these things, are now causing mutant bugs, that are resistant to the insecticide, and super weeds, that are resistant to the herbicide.
Which is causing farmers to have to use more roundup, which in turn is getting into more and more waterways.

Did you even read everything I wrote? Or did you just skim through and replied with an opinion that was already set in your mind?
Of course I Know what GMO is! I also know a little about Farming.... It is the source of income that has provided my family with a comfortable
lifestyle so we can provide food to people and pay taxes so those in need can receive food stamps.... It is actually a good living.
I don't know where you are getting your misinformation.... But you Are WRONG! Please show me some visual proof of these Mutant Bugs and Super Weeds
resistant to herbicide... I spent almost everyday walking through fields and have yet to see one. I have an interest in entomology and would be really
excited if I found a "Mutant" bug so I could study it. A few years ago.... I discovered one of the very first insects imported from Europe that
were released to combat Leafy Spurge.... it was the first reported in my state. They were not doing a very good job.
It was from the Sphingidae
You are DEAD WRONG that Farmers have to use more roundup these days even in a GMO crop. They are actually using less.... Farmers are actually using
less roundup... so Less of this stuff is getting into the water. So what is your argument??? GMO's or Chemicals that might possibly enter the water?
That would be an entirely different argument.
I have a better and very unique view into this than you ever will. being part of a farm system that not only starts and finishes in the field...but
also processes and holds a final product until it is sold to a company to will further process it and put it in a can on a shelf for you to
purchase.... and also packages one that will go straight to a shelf so that you can cook it up yourself.
Having this kind of unique insight.... If I were you..... I would be more concerned about how the raw product is being stored and treated in some
places before it is sold. Bet you don't know how a bin full of moldy corn is treated so it can be sold and shipped.
I do....You GMO haters would
never eat from an "Organic" crop again if you knew what I know.
OF COURSE NO ONE INJECTED ME WITH AN X-LINKED DISORDER! It is something that my family carries... an inherited mutant DNA.... But if someone told me
they had found a way to Disable it in the egg stage.... I would be on board ASAP! Do you even know anything about X-linked or DNA? No offence.... and
I say this in the nicest way possible over the internet..... but I think you are a nit-wit.
perhaps you are just uneducated... and that is ok....
You have a right to be wrong....
I might be new here.... But trust me.... It is very hard to win an argument with me.
Please post a list of the offending chemicals and plants you feel are a threat to your consumption of sustenance. Not companies.... If you need some
help.... I would be happy to provide the details to you myself. You would be surprised what I know.... Every piece of grain, corn, ect.... has a
specific name and can be tracked down to the grain dealer that sold it for seed due to the stuff that offends you... If it made you sick.... identify
the specific piece that did and I will be happy to direct you to someone who can tell you who grew it.
