The food companies are using pesticides that cause cancer.  It's scientifically proven and it's horrible.  Monsanto doesn't know what they're doing, and someone has to change it.  Either shut them down, or make find a cleaner, and healthier way, to live.

Sincerest apologies, but it seems we cannot find what you are looking for.
Please try searching, or our homepage.

btw why would the companies use pesticides? it are the farmers that use pesticides. also is the very old news. in europe we have rules for farmers to follow considering how to protect their crops. more then 10 year already that is.

Link fix:

Just today I read that a regional lab around here looked at some asiatic food like Cantonese lettuce, and stated that only few grams of such food contains a pesticide dosis of several times the reference values.

As partydevil said, old news. You gotta know where your food comes and what regulations are valable there (and how well they're respected).

Monsanto doesn't know what they're doing,

I would say they know, but don't care. Or don't know because they didn't care to investigate. Either way, they don't care about us. That's long since well known.

Just something to consider before we get into lambasting GMOs as a whole.

Because consuming things which have had stuff sprayed all over them designed to repel or kill other organisms is a brilliant idea. Though I don't know how strong the correlation is, it certainly can't have any good effects.

This isn't news.

Who the **** said this is old?  Yeah, my mom's been talking about this for 8 years now, but a lot of things on this forum are like that.  Who the hell cares?

The difference is..you are offering this as if it is new news.

Plus, it is really just making a mountain out of a mole hill. Most chemicals are put into a product in low enough doses that it isn't as harmful as people like to make it out to be (Brominated Vegetable Oil, for example)

Tests show that rats died a lot faster when eating the chemicals.   It must be somewhat harmful to us.

Rats. Not humans.

And in large doses they can be harmful...but then again, the foods themselves can be harmful to us in large doses.
