from my blood: Marine1: This just in: people who believe in pseudoscience will often ignore calls to have their findings placed through the scrutiny of peer reviews.

That's what calls against GMO food are: pseudoscience.

Calls for GMO are lies brought on by the greedy 1% who manipulate life without really knowing the long term effects on humans and on the environment.

Also, the seed produced by GM crops should not not be property of the GM company. Those backing this sick patent practice should be jailed for life for obvious morality corruption.

Supporting this legal BS will result in this: When your arm is regrown by GM, they will claim a percentage of your wages belongs to them since you used their arm. This is not the world we should be moving toward.

Big surprise. Seralini got called on his methods before, he'd hate to get smacked down again.

The issue of whether GM seeds should belong to the company is a legal issue. Not a moral one. You'll have all sorts of people, like me, who work on GM plants, or in the field and hate the patent system because of what it does. But don't hate the technology. Maybe if there was more scientific understanding, and you (the public) decided that you'd actually like to fund these things yourself, then you wouldn't have to put up with the price of having private industry fund it. Food for thought. Incidentally, cultivars have been IP protected since before the Chakrabarty case brought it up.

Prometheus, Myriad, Chakrabarty. Three words that will spike my blood pressure and make me want to punch people in the face.

from my blood: GM is a greedy company which knowingly does more harm than good. Control should be ripped from its leaders and handed to do-gooders for the benefit of mankind and the earth.

Yet, my Chevrolet brand corn plants are thriving where the Ford and Chrysler ones died. Argue with that if you can.

If I were him I wouldn't worry about releasing my data. Conspiracy nuts (And that's basically who these people are) don't care about facts or data that don't support what they already think.

If he had to release the actual research, people might realize what a fear-mongering piece of crap he is, and that he just wants to sell an agenda.
