i tend to agree with you on that point though, label it and let the consumer decide.

so, did you leave a public comment?

Hmmmmm...topic is saftey of GMOs?? If they are safe, then lable them...I find it difficult to accept the safety of consumable foods if it isn't labled and ingredients fully disclosed...

How many letters have you written the FDA on labeling? How many calls have you made to your Congressman/Senator on labeling?

There are millions around the world who are saved from starving to death because of GMO's.

Other countries (including first world countries) are increasing their usage of GMO's because they understand the benefits of using it and don't buy into the elitist conspiracy theorists viewpoint they are hazardous to either human beings or the environment.

Labelling has nothing to do with safety. my apple trees produce delicious apples. they are perfectly safe without the benefit of labels.

why don't you want to say whether or not you left a public comment?
this is your golden opportunity..

Labeling is a good thing. It has nothing to do with the GMO issue. All foods should be labeled. The apples should be label as to point of origin.

The US is moving ahead at a prudent pace on GMO. It's an exciting technology that over time will really improve agriculture.

So? care to answer the question I posed to you earlier?

How many letters have you written the FDA on labeling? How many calls have you made to your Congressman/Senator on labeling?

What demonstrations have you staged in front of stores that sell GM produce?

Why haven't you started your own thread concerning labeling instead of trying to hijack this one?

Doesn't matter. My cows - as well as all of the literally thousands of cows on neighboring ranches - can't read. And they're the ones who are refusing to graze even the cornstalks, much less the corn, of GMO plantings. They'll eat the grass and weeds growing up at the base of the cornstalk - but won't touch it otherwse. Of course, they're just stupid animals - what do they know? After all, we're all educated here, and can implicitly and intelligently believe whatever we are told by people who have done studies, for gawrshsakes! Grind that corn - grits, anyone? The more the cows refuse to eat, the more for us! YAY!
I have read numerous accounts of other laboratory creatures (chiefly rats and mice), who will not eat GMO foods even when very, very hungry. I suppose those rats and mice are just as stupid as the cows are.

The fact of the matter is that GMO food has been PROVEN to have a negative impact on organ functioning as well as suppression of the immune system. I think, by now just about everyone in the known universe knows what happened to the sheep in India who grazed on the GMO cotton forage.

The OP can show me all the "studies" in the universe that have been bought and paid for by Monsanto, Cargill, Dow, and the other giants in the commercial farming industry, and all their minions as well and you will never convince me that tomatoes with pig genes are going to be good for me.

As for the statement that someone here made about there having been GMO produce in our food supply for a very long time, sadly that is true. Is it any wonder why then cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other once-rare maladies are now OFF THE CHARTS? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

I am very fortunate to be able to grow heirloom vegetables in my garden, but I see a day when that might not be LEGAL thanks to the financial influences of the purveyors of Frankenfood. Many countries, including Hungary, Ireland, Germany, India, and many, many more have banned GMO foods from being grown within their boundaries. I guess they are just as stupid as the cows and rats and mice who know that this stuff will kill you.

That's funny, GM crop planting has increased year by year worldwide.

In fact I opened a thread on this exact subject with numerous links.

Some countries will ban it, others won't....

where can one read about these accounts? have they been published in actual scientific journals, or just hysterical greenie blogs?

well, that's convenient, since you couldn't buy a tomato containing pig genes even if you wanted to.

what is your basis for blaming an increase in those diseases on GMO produce?
