How safe is the so-called "Green Genetic Engineering" really? Monsanto, the world's largest genetic engineering corporation, insists it is safe. Numerous studies claim genetically modified plants can cause allergies and cancers. However, commercial and political interests are determined to make genetic engineering the norm.

Yes, give them engineered food and the same social security we have and the same healthcare they want to force on us.

Let's find an island in the middle of nowhere, ship them all there, and give them nothing but their own crap to eat. How long do you think they'll last?

Looks like they're finding ways to infect even the most remote natural seed plants and livestock with their genetic meddling, through cross-pollenization and genome "patents."

I love how this gets no media coverage. If people paid attention, they'd be scared to eat anymore. There should be some serious lobbying against this. How does one lobby?

I think most Lobbyists are well paid spin doctors, traitors, and general enemies of the people


if you are trying to advocate for justice and what is equitable...I think it's politely called being an Activist ...
which you don't get much financial assistance, could be labeled a radical liberal, conspiracy theorist, ect....

Do you really believe this? Because I don't. Cigarette smoking unquestionably causes cancer, heart desease, stroke, artierial desease, emphysema and who knows what all else. Yet every day thousands and thousands of people start smoking. Everyday milions and millions of people just keep on puffing. Countless billions of dollars are spent on a product to be burned up every year.


Genetically engineered or not, as long as it tastes mostly like the original, looks pretty with no brown spots, is cheap and readily available, people will not even slow down in their consumption.

I don't really and the wild animals eat anything I put outside anyway.

hey now... at least 40 GMO's have been cleared under our government's FDA & USDA's careful scrutiny C9femist

I feel perfectly protected, cared for, valued, and watched over Rolling Eyes



.

seriously though, I do check for non modified food labels.... and organic, if that even really means much...
the rules for that are kinda sketchy too

but I do eat out sometimes ...so who knows whatcha get

Since this is all government sanctioned, it's all about producing mass quantities at the cheapest cost, for them anyway. I don't think genetically-modified anything is a good idea, it's not natural. And the fact is that horseshit FDA doesn't give a damn about our health and well being - the more they screw with us, the more money they make.

The chemical companies, and not just Monsanto but there are others, CIBA-Geigy or however-you-spell-it comes immediately to mind, are spreading their genetic modifications all over the planet through cross breeding and cross pollenizations with the naturally occurring varieties of the same species. Not all of them are US owned and most including Monsanto are multinational corporations. Different countries have different rules and laws about what kinds of genetic mods are permitted, and the multinational corps know exactly how to play one country off on another, and get around following the rules, they just make their own damn rules.

Seems to depend on where they are. In Illinois for instance they grew genetically modified corn for years which was somehow sterilized so that it's seed corn would not be viable, and the reason they gave for sterilizing the seed was to prevent cross-pollenization. I don't know if they still do it that way, but a lot of Illinois farmers didn't like it because it meant they had to buy new seed corn every year instead of saving some seeds for the next year's plantings like they had done in the past. From watching those videos I saw that the same rules apparently weren't imposed on what they could grow in Mexico and so their genetically modified corn varieties have been allowed to cross-pollenate with the wild varieties in Mexico.
