I am all for GMO, because lets face it, we basically do the same thing over time with selective breeding. I am more in favor of using GMO to effect the plants survivalbity apposed to enhancing the quality of the fruit.

Gmo crops fail. Research farmer suicides over gmo crop failures. Also research seed bank restoration of seed after gmo failures. There is no increased survivability unless you count cancer causing herbicides not killing crops.

Breeding over time does not transfer genes from unrelated species.

Modern recycling of plastics depends on a 100 or so strains of GMO algae.

Starting the GMO project was a terrible idea.

hi Richard!

aspartame is produced by a genetically modified organism as well

check out the connection between aspartame and diabetes

The concept of GMO is not for benefit but to create a food monopoly. Natural selection has worked for billions of years. No point in interfering with it now. They don't need GMO banana when the African moringa projects have already filled that niche. The African greenbelt project also has proven the GMO banana has no place or need.

GMO plants for a certain reason is good. BUT! Big but, its how the GMO product is used.

Richard let us know the GMO algae to help break down plastic. Well this is a good thing. I think we can all agree. I am pro GMO for thing like this. I just think we need to make sure the this GMO algae says out of the public water source and oceans so that it does not take over and cause something bad to happen. Which is know to happen with GMO products.

Someone said Aspartame, OO gosh where to start with this. I am pro GMO'ing virus and bacteria for the general good. I just hate then products like this end up as a public health hazard and we were never giving a warning or option. From what I have been able to determine as truth behind Aspartame, is that a The e coli bacteria was modified to consume / dissolve nuclear waste. The by product of the modified e coli bacteria eating the radioactive material turns out to be none radioactive and sweet. So the infamous Aspartame is the fecal waste of GMO e coli. THIS SHOULD BE Banned! for human consumption. I agree, BUT using the GMO e coli to get ride of this type of waste it pretty darn smart. IMO.

I am not Anti GMO, but pro GMO labeling. Give us the info to make the best decision for our self's and family's.

It is true the most GMO products are made for the pure purpose of creating a food monopoly. That is very evident by all the lawsuits from Monsanto on small farmers and all the farms they put out of business with out right Lies. It feels like 90% control and only 10% to save the world.
