Modifying the Endless Debate Over Genetically Modified Crops

May 14, 2013

Dear Brian Walsh,

You obviously haven’t done anything here other than state that there’s a debate going on. Crop rotation doesn’t change the way these crops modify entire ecosystems with their herbicide tolerant genes and the countless other irresponsible farming practices they promote. It’s not just that Monsanto is a horrible corporation that bankrupts farmers. They are slowly but surely gaining control of a large part of the world’s food supply and you tell me how that is a good thing for all of us. No one is going to do GM research other than these idiots because they’re the only ones with an incentive. I found so many things wrong with this article, than you went ahead and promoted further tampering of the genome into crops that have been previously overlooked by the GM giants. You have no idea how many of these products you consume on a daily basis, and what they’re ultimately doing to your body.

No one in the non-GMO camp is anti-science. Science is a great thing, it’s just that you have to apply the research to things other than tampering or changing what we’ve been given on this planet. Did you know you have almost a zero chance of finding corn now anywhere in the world that doesn’t carry the round up ready gene? So we’ve polluted the genome and I’m supposed to think that is a good thing? We have placed our entire food supply at risk, and I wonder who approved this toilet paper you call an article and what motivations they had. Here’s where you completely lost me,  “supporters see the knee-jerk GM opposition of many environmentalists as fundamentally anti-science, no different than the deniers on the other side of the political spectrum who question the basics of man-made climate change.” I for one am objective enough to see that the evidence for man made climate change is not all of the way there.  There is the sun’s influence which we don’t totally understand and many other factors that account for changes taking place in the earth.  However, ALL research on GMO has found it to be harmful, and anyone that stands in the way of Monsanto’s progress is quickly silenced. http://gregsarmas.com/2013/05/07/the-world-according-to-monsanto/ You have not done your research and you should watch this video link I posted above before you call anything GMO good science.

Science & Space

I’ll admit—I’ve never quite understood the obsession surrounding genetically modified (GM) crops. To environmentalist opponents, GM foods are simply evil, an understudied, possibly harmful tool used by big agribusiness to control global seed markets and crush local farmers. They argue that GM foods have never delivered on their supposed promise, that money spent on GM crops would be better funneled to organic farming and that consumers should be protected with warning labels on any products that contain genetically modified ingredients. To supporters, GM crops are a key part of the effort to sustainably provide food to meet a global population that is growing by the billions. But more than that, supporters see the knee-jerk GM opposition of many environmentalists as fundamentally anti-science, no different than the deniers on the other side of the political spectrum who question the basics of man-made climate change.

For both sides, GM foods seem to…

  1. Great post. I think many people don’t know what they are eating and it’s scary. I just reblogged a fact filled graphic post from another GMO concerned blogger. Scary I say!
