grimlock1972: people id your eating Cabbage, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts  or Cauliflower your already eating genetically altered food as they all started out as the same plant.

Human have been doing this since before written history , the only difference is now we can do it far quicker.


Same deal with changing the climate. The biosphere has been altering the climate for millions of years. Now, we can do it much faster.

I won't eat GMO foods because they aggravate my electromagnetic hypersensitivity disorder and my fibromyalgia.

snocone: Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the direct manipulation of an organism's genome using biotechnology. New DNA may be inserted in the host genome by first isolating and copying the genetic material of interest using molecular cloning may be inserted in the host genome by first isolating and copying the genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism. Genes may be removed, or "knocked out", using a nuclease.

Selective breeding, the intentional breeding of organisms with a desirable trait in an attempt to produce offspring with similar desirable characteristics or with improved traits.

Oh yea, pretty much the same thingie. eh?

But we all agree,
mon-san-toh   is evil . . . .

Life forms wander to all living lands, and should not be claimed by the owner of the land they wander from.

I always found it ironic that the same people who rail against religion and call on the virtues of logic and science are the ones that seem to be so skeered of gmo foods.

vpb: Pretty much any domesticated plant or animal is genetically modified.  If you live in the US you are already eating GM food, even if you mean modified by something other than artificial selection.


but but Monsanto! Evil!

itcamefromschenectady: grokca: How heavy do they think the labels will be?

They're initiating the process of deciding whether to start to investigate considering weighing the labels.

If the labels have the complete genetic code for each ingredient, those are going to be some heavy labels.


It's not heavy, it's my label.
