|I fail to see how Monsanto or GMOs prohibit/cause any of these things.|
|No, Monsanto’s worst enemy is uneducated protesters.|
|Right. Since no one has ever become ill, sick, or died from GMOs?|
|Too bad GM products could reduce
disease and starvation in the developing world.
Why are people against requiring labels for GMO crops? Because, food labeling laws need to be based on science not fear. If we start down this path, there is no limit to the information that could be demanded to be displayed on the label based only on fear and ignorance. For example:- may contains crops planted during a full-moon- may contains crops planted on the 13th day of the month- may contains crops harvested on the 13th day of the month- only contains crops planted using no-till techniques- only contains crops planted using conventional tillage- . . . .
I looked at the March Against Monsanto Facebook page…..all I can say is wow and laugh.
I'd disagree that you can "especially" get sick from organic foods…. any food product has the potential for contamination. Nothing about organic or gmo make them more or less sanitary or contaminated w/ E Coli, Listeria, Salmonella etc etc…. That is a handling/processing issue.. but the anti GMO crowd is a bit nuts, right up there with the Moms against guns and Mayor Bloomberg.
