I never believed in the use or approval of GMO foods. I go by this one saying, Never Fuck with Mother Nature, she's a bitch goddess when you mess with her!
I feel our foods should be left as nature intended, and I don't care what folks like Bill Gates or George Bush Sr. say about them being so great, plus most studies are by companies or agencies that profit from GMO's being made (of COURSE they are going to say their stuff is safe). Now before any of you give me any silly tin foil hat jokes, or silly pictures with cheesy captions for some childish LOL factor moment (I get enough of that each time a paranormal topic appears on this site
), let me say this.
Many countries have made it where law states all foods made with GMO ingredients must be labeled. Some countries even BANNED GMO foods. And a vast majority of the American public wants labeling laws so any GMO made foods will tell us they are GMO. Yet the FDA still refuses to do anything....they are either unable to do it, or most likely, unwilling to do it. FDA feels more like a police force for the drug companies and other industries like GMO food makers. I find it sad that America, as usual, is bringing up the rear when it comes to doing what's right.
And regardless of weather any of you think GMO's are safe or not safe, or Mon Santo being as evil as our politicians are, I am sure we can at least agree on this: Force the FDA to make the labeling laws that the majority of the American public wants, so that way we know what it is on the store shelves, and what we are feeding our selves and our loved ones.....I am sure that is in the least bit fair. I personally don't see why Monsanto and the other big companies should have all the say so, especially since they are getting the boot prints of the other countries on their behinds.
And here's some videos:
Wow. You must think Luther Burbank was history's greatest monster!
As for what you're discussing, it's more political and economical than it is nutritional. You have a problem with groups like Monsanto, I do as well, but GMO foods themselves are not inherently harmful.
Also, Luther Burbank made a bigger and better potato known as the Idaho potato. For that alone, I shall forever love Luther Burbank.
