Good read Mark, there is a lot of controversy on the subject.
Possibly the biggest study done recently on rats, concluded that GMOs are unsafe, untested and whether the biotech eng. companies think GMOs would stop would reduce world hunger or impact our environment in some positive way is negligible. Yet this amazing study is being dismissed by the FDA and Monsanto. research.sustainablefoodtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Final-Paper.pdf CAUTION: graphic pictures
So many other things are going on right now... For example, PIs are trespassing farmlands and taking samples of GM planted crops, and then suing farmers for planting saved seeds that are patented by Monsanto, taking these farmers to court! So even the people that support Monsanto in some small way are being targeted.
Those of us concerned about
GMOs are just asking for our God given right, to know what we are ingesting. We should be able to make an informed decision about
what we put into our bodies!
Mexican corn (which has banned Monsanto from interfering) has already tested their corn, positive for trasgenic DNA, which means cross-contamination. Plainly put, if Monsanto destroys local farming, Mexico among other countries will be dependent on multi-nationals, having to buy Monsanto fertilizers or herbicides, because without it their industrial(Monsanto) corn will not grow.
I get really fired up, sorry, but its pretty serious! None of us really KNOW if GM foods have impacted us in some negative way... how could you?
If Monsanto is so proud of their GMOs, why don't they slap a label on them?www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6_DbVdVo-k
