  1. #21
    if there is nothing dangerous about gmos then why are they so against labeling products with them?

    Fear. Humans are stupid creatures. We fear that which we do not understand. Labeling products sends a message that the product contains something that you should be worried about. Labeling could hurt product sales. Anyone who knows anything about business and marketing should know exactly why companies would fight labeling. There are hundreds of substances in the foods we eat everyday that may or not be harmful to us. These substances are not called out in any special way. I go with the innocent until proven guilty concept. Fight for more studies and testing on GMO. If it is found that it can be linked to some harmful effect in humans, then force labeling.

    I understand if people don't want to sign it.. but at the very least those who are unfamiliar should educate ones self on what exactly is going on here. If someone is aware of the threats and hazards of GMOs, but still does not care- then that is willful ignorance.
    and who the f&ck appointed you to be the educator/crusader????? most of us come here to get away from this crap and its seriously annoying when people interject this crap into mostly lighthearted stuff. its the same deal when sonoftheson (or whoever he was) started religious stuff. would you be comfortable with somebody in the lineup preaching this sh%t? probably not so why do it here?

    So don't click on the link. Even easier than not buying it.

    GMO is just a new name for an old practice. The first neanderthal that ate a plant and realized he could feed his neanderthal family with it started this mess. Humans have been selecting and cultivating specific strains of plants throughout history. So many everyday foods were inedible a few hundred years ago. I think strawberries are one of the most recent to lose their toxicity. How'd that happen? Modifications to the species, that's how.

    The modifications happened much more slowly and so they were not feared. Each GMO seed can be slightly different and people don't really understand the implications of each modification. That's why people are wary.

    Bottom line is don't fear modified foods. Everything is modified.

    while i try to avoid gmos, you need to keep in mind that your body has the benefit of 3.6 billion years of collective evolution to combat our modern science experiments. Just keep moving, and don't stress and keep in mind life will find a way.

    Unless you're allergic to bee stings... I would think people who are might be happy about them disappearing!
