That may be true, but what are the affects of sustained consumption over a number of years? Looking at the levels of chronic disease, poor health, poor mental health etc.. of western society, I don’t believe that the way food is produced can be dismissed.
How about the rates of death due to starvation and preventable disease in non-Western societies?
Nobody lives forever. You will die. From something.
The problem with most of the organic food proponents is that they rely on anecdotal evidence almost exclusively.
Indeed they do… Supporting GMOs does not EQUAL supporting Monsanto.
Dirty Human filth!
we wanted to take your planet and push it into the sun, but then we saw just how filthy you are… and we knew our work was done.
we came in peace and left in disgust!
Shut the fuck up.
Well, how I see it at this point of time is to change what we can for us or our families, as unfortunately, society has damaged way too much now. Along with doing what we can for our own families, pray for the Lord to bless the food for the use of our bodies, to nourish and feed us the way is should, and thank God for the abundance before us. This is what I’m doing so….. alleviates a lot of stress by changing what we ‘can’ change. ‘s’
Can you explain to me in what way ‘society has been damaged too much’ We have much longer lifespans, much better quality of life, and generally society is a LOT better than it was, hell, 50 years ago, especially more so than it was over 100 years ago! Not all GM is perfect, but to completely dismiss it as being bad for you is to be a Luddite who is damning the advancement of technology without any prior knowledge.
Hmmm, that last photo is mine. How did you remove the watermark? http://www.designinkarnation.com/2012/05/90-and-loving-it.html
Thanks for adding the photo credit. 🙂
Basically this entire post consists of either logical falacies, lies or ignorance… keep up the bad work!!!!
Do you work for Monsanto? How could you have an ounce of intelligence and not realized the food that we are consuming is tainted by greed
Yes! I work for Monsanto!!!
Everyone in the world that understands logic and reason works for Monsanto…
According to your logic and reason ofc…
No true research has been made in order to prove the fact that GMOs are healthy. On the contrary, I read some scientists researchs that show in may be dangerous. GMOs are not old enough to be proved safe. We’re just guinea pigs of a multinational that makes its monopolistic economic interests come before the protection of global health: we only have to see the legislation passed in his favor to obtainin global monopoly on seeds. The main argument of GMOs was the early eradication of hunger in the world … we are still waiting …
ALL the research points to GMO’s being no problem at all…
The only problem with GMO’s is the scaremongering surrounding it by morons and non-scientists…
Agreed. Genetic modification happens all the time. It’s normally a chaotic process (random mutation), but humans are now smart enough to control it. I have yet to hear a convincing argument that I should be frightened of that. Should we let corporations patent genes? Maybe not, but that’s a separate question. There’s nothing scary about GMOs. We are all GMOs!
Selective process or selective mutation (I.e. GMO) does not equal chaotic process (random selection). GMO are developed to select species traits and therefore not anything like the random mutations that occur naturally.
According to your definition of GMO, we have been eating GMOs for thousands of years. Ancient Farmers selected the individuals with the best traits, bred them together, and the resulting offspring would inherit those traits. The same applies to plants. Q.E.D, you just defeated your own argument.
So we have had plants that can’t reproduce before ? That’s strange ? Seeds that have added chemicals that make it resistant to disease, now that’s natural..if ur into health and eat gmo ‘s show us the results, selfie what health looks like…..
Genetic modification is an entirely different process to natural genetic mutation/evolution. There is very little transferrence of genetic material between large, complex organisms of different species. It’s not normal, the claim that it is is either a big misunderstanding of reality or a deliberate attempt to cloud the truth.
Research shows that Americans are more likely to have a food allergy than the rest of the world. Research also shows that Foreigner who move here are more likely to get a food allergy once they move here as America is the only country that has THE MOST WIDELY USED AMOUNT OF GMOs than tge rest of the world. Why do you think Gluten sensitivity is on the rise?! B/c our wheat comes from Monsanto
No. People who are raised in urban environments (or even developed in the mother in an urban environment) never develop tolerance of the “countryside” allergens. As a result, they have intense allergic reactions when they come into contact with them. MinutePhysics has a video on it. Look it up and stop relying on anecdotal evidence to propagate your arguments.
Ummm I grew up on a farm in Vermont and developed severe food allergies in my teens only after I moved to a high income area in CT where everyone sprays their lawns for pesticides…
Fallacy identified: post hoc, ergo propter hoc. There are infinitely (or as close as practical) many factors that come into play when your body undergoes changes during teen years. I could use your line of logic to link anything to anything else.
I see all bull’s hit you say is real.??People who is lack of education can’t say much…but unfortunately we support real food and real farmers, who work hard enough to grow organic and produce real products.
But i would never ever support Monsanto group..its nonsense…whatever you believe or say its all up to you and Monsanto, power is money. But the truth story sadly never will be open for people like us. We have to find other ways.
Being fine with GMOs does not automatically make me supportive of Monsanto. Your argument contains so many fallacies that I’ve lost count.
Monsanto has NOT been banned in any of those countries mentioned here, and they remain active in all of the countries mentioned above . http://www.monsanto.com/whoweare/Pages/our-locations.aspx
It would be more honest to list the organic apple like this “Ingredients:
Aqua, vegetable oils, sugars, starch, carotene, tocophereol (E306),
riboflavin (E101), nicotinamide, pantothetic acid, biotin,
folic acid, asobic acid, (E300), palmitic acid, stearic acid (E570),
oxalic acid, salicylic acid, purine, sodium, potasium, maganese, iron,
copper, zinc, phosphorus, chloride, colours, antioxidant.”
You follow IFLS too?
OMG LOL!!! Sorry to be insulting, but the comments here are hilarious! Either you people are severely ignorant or lobotomised. Genetically modified crops are extremely dangerous and haven’t been rigorously tested. The independent studies done show cancerous tumours in rats and in a lot of cases produce a lower crop yield than conventional farming. The growing population theory is also a complete fallacy as relative numbers of local farmers can easily supply enough food for their community – it has nothing to do with quantity whatsoever. Large-scale mono-culture farming is a failure, causing enormous pest problems and nutrient-deficient soil. In fact experienced organic farmer can produce top class results without any need for toxic substances. And the guy that said “aspartame is safe”?? Holy crap! No comment.
Please, link me to those studies. No? Alright then ~scribbling noise~ “Anecdotal Evidence, Ad Hominem, Slippery Slope, Naturalism Fallacy…”
Why not give him some time to reply before jumping to conclusions?
I’m merely extrapolating data ahead of time. I’m still waiting to see if my conclusions are as I predicted, partially true or incorrect in it’s entirety.
Your grammar doesn’t benefit your argument.
If you’re referring to this study, it was retracted. http://retractionwatch.com/2013/11/28/controversial-seralini-gmo-rats-paper-to-be-retracted/
I would suggest you read the original paper, and the comments on the retraction.
So the pro-GMO folk will bash the anti-GMO folk and call them ignorant. And the anti-GMO folk will defend their stance, feeling the “scientific proof” of which the pro-GMO folk speak is likely funded at some level by Monsanto or food industry leaders, who of course have much more money to find studies than does the small-town organic farmer. They will believe the unenlightened pro-GMO crowd is ignorant. Neither will ever convince the other to change sides, but at the end of the day, I have a young family, and if I am anti-GMO and wrong, nothing happens except that we waste some money on our food. However, if I am pro-GMO and wrong, I would never forgive myself for not erring on the side of caution if one of my children became ill from any disease thought to be tied to GMOs.
To *fund* studies
I tried to join in, but nothing logical is being discussed. If you really think Chemical additives and GMO’s are good for you then please keep eating them. Your short life span is good enough. You’re probably also the children of people that were surprised when they said smoking is bad for you also.
