The charges against GMO would have more gravitas if they were accompanied by scientific facts about the putative dangers rather that being motivated by hatred of the giant Monsanto. The millions of people around the globe who are now going to bed with a full stomach by eating GMO should also have a voice.

Would these protesters prefer that people around the world starve to death? For many of these individuals the real answer is probably yes. They would prefer that there were far fewer individuals on this planet.

The 2 of you both completely miss the point.
It's not so much that GMO foods are safe,
It's that ONE company - Monsanto - is monopolizing the entire world's FOOD supply.

He who controls the FOOD, controls the World.

Gadiantons taking it to an all new level.

One wonders if the first two posters are trolls - there is so much damning evidence that show GMOs are harmful to the environment and to the human body that one has to actively try to avoid it. And the idea that we need GMOs to feed the world is such a completer fabrication it barely deserves the ink to refute it (50% of the food in the world is thrown away! and we produce enough food to feed 33% more people than we have now). So both those comments are from an uninformed source or a troll. I don't mind folks disagreening, but it would be nice if they at least had accurate data.

We learned the hard way, years ago, regarding GMO foods. It affected my Father's heart and mine also. Before they decided not to label GMO foods, some of them were labeled for a short period of time. The produce manager was anry, and said, "They said it would be safe." That was our introduction to GMO foods. Since then, it has been over 3 years that I have been doing research regarding GMO foods. I pray that people do some research regarding GMO foods, because I feel the health of the people depend on it. It is too late after the fact. God made food perfect, and to have foods that release pesticides in foods and explode the guts of the bugs that eat them, it is going to do the same thing to us. Responsible Technology has outstanding information regarding GMO foods, and also there are many great videos on YouTube regarding the subject.
