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.

Monsanto is a criminal organization and since they have so much power, they can abuse people without being punished for it.
Thanks to the Conservative agenda that wants the corporations to do what they want, we are screwed more and more everyday.

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


It brings a tear to my eye when I see someone previously-deadlocked in their way of thinking to finally looking at things in an Evolutionary perspective. It's like we're actually doing something good around here!

Harmful, but I can't afford organic stuff. It's tasty anyway.

Are you referring tot he study where they had pictures of rats with cancer after eating GMOs? The study that used rats with a predisposition to developing cancer, incredibly low sample sizes and was funded by people who would have something to gain from the discontinued sale of all GMO products?

Now don't get me wrong I'm not defending Monsanto. They have plenty wrong in their field. I'm just trying to be cautious about having GMO = poison.

Conservatives believe that everyone has their own rights. If a company wants to run a certain way, go ahead. Conservatives just protest that these corporations make most of the food we eat. Aside form organic, there should be another way.

So from what I get, you're going to protest, but in effect, not protest to clamp down on them, but merely raise your voices and banners to show your displeasure, then go home and eat a nice organic cucumber salad? Sounds like a brilliant plan.

So they have the right to run their business in a way that has them making most of the food we eat? And they have the right to make that food with long term hazards to us?

They have the right to do wjhat they want, but there shold be a distinct icon or something saying that "This food is made with GMOs." Most of the food we eat has no way of telling.
