Pretty fuckin' stupid first 'new rule'. Comparing GM foods to those with horse meat or sushi with cats in it is like comparing you fucking some gorgeous woman with a nice tight body from using protein powders to humping some STD-ridden skank whore.

Horses have been stolen and sent to slaughter houses in mexico, just across the border, where they are killed then the meat is sent to different countries as beef, europe, usa, canada.. its in hamburgers in restaurants too. The danger comes from the fact that horses are treated with medicines that are NOT SAFE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION, so please be safe and be aware of what you're putting in your body. There are no farms raising horses for safe meat consumption at this time, any horse meat consumed will mostly be from someone's pet.. for info please google slaughter houses horses, or chemicals or meds given to horses unsafe for human consumption. peace& love♥

I'd take fresh horse-meat to a disgusting over proteinized chicken breast any day of the week! No worries about a the US food supply being increasingly regulated by smart biochemists and genetic engineers. F&^k you, all you redneck farmers!! Why does Amazon even want whole foods now that they cannot even label their own food?? Why on Earth-day would the benificent billionaire elite class that we trust to control our privacy and our news, now try and take over the US food supply?? Monopoly!!When will there ever be a more perfect time to dodge any public antitrust concerns? The population of the US, as well as all major media outlets here, are all far too distracted by their false-flag obsessions to push either a pro-Trump or an anti-Trump narrative. Who has time to worry about some lone wolf billionaire taking control of the US food supply, a brilliant but ruthless guy who already owns many of the major retail lines of distribution, controls news via the Washington Post, and significantly supports nearly half of Washington DC’s key politicians. “It will be better for all of us,” say the bankers and Monsanto PR execs. And if not, no worries—there’s always the hard-working 2-earner tax-paying families in the US to finance a safety net, and rescue the billionaires when yet another key US institution grows ‘too big to fail.” All good, so long as Mr Trump succeeds, or gets deposed, depending on your specific propaganda-of-choice. That’s what really matters. Now eat your generously super- sized antibiotic/hormone-laden disgustingly thick and tasteless chicken white-meat swollen 'fresh' fruit engineered for your eating pleasure by your friendly neighborhood biochemist, watch you 6 hours of daily cable, sleep like an exhausted dead person, return to your job tomorrow (if you still have one) and shut the f*&^k up!! You thankless deplorable!! Or be smart and throw out your chicken parts, feast out on a big horse thigh, or a fresh alley-cat liver pate. Either would be better that a healthy manufactured chicken breast.

What I don't understand is why people were laughing at the end.

Einar Thorsteinsson (11 месяцев назад)
What? Make more food to throw away? Isn't the "world's food problem" a problem with the haves and have nots? Not unlike the world's wealth distribution? If the rich actually paid a fair amount of taxes and we addressed the wealth distribution then proper education and health care (science based and free of religion and faith) could be provided in every single country. This would sort out any population issues and different farming methods could be used to maximise food production and provide positive environmental impact. But I guess this is just a pie in the sky as there is little political will to address the current wealth distribution. However, GMO food solving food problems is like the sauce on top of that pie in the sky; you need the pie first, if you want it.
Alex Harris (2 года назад)
+Tammyaway - Yeah, the only even remotely sane argument coming from the anti-GMO crowd is that changing the DNA structure of an organism and skipping the pressures of natural selection might leave them susceptible to natural threats that they would otherwise be able to handle. But that's more of a technical problem that is, get this, *literally solvable through further genetic modification*.
Tammyaway (2 года назад)
Bill Maher's point was that "if you didn't want labels, don't complain when you've been lied to". That argument is totally moronic. If anything, it proves that in some cases you can't trust the label anyway! In this case meat was labeled as cow meat, when it was actually horse meat. Maher is completely stupid when it comes to GMO's, big pharma, and vaccines. It's like all his rationale goes out the window and he starts sounding like a creationist or a climate change denier. GMO's are completely safe, and for all intents and purposes are safer than "non-GMO" foods, since they go through more rigorous safety testing. His argument that "it should just be labeled" is also silly. You don't have to label every little unimportant thing. If I started a campaign about the risks in foods made in the proximity of electronic devices, do they have to label them now, despite the fact that my entire argument is complete bullshit? Labeling GMO's is just part of an unscientific campaign designed to scare people off what could one day solve the world's food problems.
Alex Harris (2 года назад)
+paspax - Why wouldn't it be? Remember that everything you eat is broken down by digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid, and all of it turns into a slurry of "stuff". Proteins, vitamins, sugars, fibers, etc. As long as the new plant isn't producing poison or something crazy like that there's no reason it shouldn't be processed in the digestive system just like anything else would.
DarKMaTTeR (3 года назад)
In theory, packaging should include as much information as possible. However, GMOs are special in that they have an extremely bad reputation, one which isn't supported by facts, while being a necessity for meeting food demands. Essentially, labeling GMOs will force them out of the markets. So there's a conflict here. You can either respect people's right to know and make a bad choice, or make the right choice for them and set a terrible precedent.
Mark Kond (2 года назад)
+Hevian S So let me get this straight. Vegans should be able to choose to make "medically unnecessary and harmful" dietary choices, but people who don't want GMOs for whatever reason? Nah, fuck those guys, we need to protect them from themselves by not labeling. Clearly a very logical and unbiased argument here. Oh wait, you talked about fear and scare mongering. Yes, good thing we have you, the arbiter of logic, to make the case about concealing facts in order to protect people from their irrationality. And this has absolutely nothing to do with that irrationality cutting into GMO producers' profits. No, it's all about protecting the simple folk from their superstitions.

Britain had it's own scandal like this in 2013. A large amount of horse meat was creeping into budget microwave dinners and, it's not just the corporation's fault, it's the consumers as well - rather than go that little bit further and go for more organic food, make it themselves or even so far as to actually care what's being put in, they opt for the stuff that comes out of a machine looking worse than when it went in. If you didn't care what you were putting into your mouth, you can't get on your high horse and suddenly care about what the companies were putting into the mincer; you were taking a meal that was once gourmet to one country and turned it into a budget snack - you get what you pay for.
Ron Wolf (2 года назад)
+Giovanni Magnus What exactly are the restrictions imposed by the FDA on corporations that label their food “organic”?
Giovanni Magnus (2 года назад)
+Hevian S You're completely right. Food companies cannot put just anything into food - which is why you have lobbyists getting their fingers into the FDA and trying to water down the regulations. Why else would Congress have bills pass that mean corporations have no obligation to put the country of origin on food packaging? And I didn't imply organic was a healthier choice - but organic food has stricter legislation where the amount of chemicals, such as synthetic fertilisers, growth hormones and pesticides, and by extension means tighter controls on sourcing.

And here's GMO salmon that I'm sure Bill is against: "With AquAdvantage salmon, market weight of around 2-3kgs can be achieved in 18 - 24 months, as opposed to three years. However faster growth is not the only benefit, says Dr Stotish. AquAdvantage salmon can be grown domestically, in containment close to land and populations. This provides a number of benefits. The first would be that producing the fish in captivity, in closed systems, would dramatically reduce transport costs and improve the whole supply chain. Dr Stotish explained that this would have a huge environmental impact, reducing the industry's carbon footprint. Secondly, producing more salmon in containment will reduce pressure on wild fish stocks. Improved fishing methods and overfishing has resulted in a major decline in many fish stocks. There are huge concerns for wild stocks of Atlantic salmon which can reach closer to 5-6kgs in weight." http://www.thefishsite.com/articles/958/genetically-modified-salmon-changing-the-future/#sthash.iFo4puzX.dpuf Don't you actually care if we protect the environment Bill?

Ahh Bill, just a little more reading would have helped you on this.  But, now you sound stupid.  The label movement just wants the products to have the "gmo' or "no gmo" on the label.  They don't care about whats in the food, else you would hear them call for labelling on organic products like this "mutagenesis", "in vitro fertilization", etc.  The pro labellers don't want to know, they just want gmos either banned or villified and boycotted.

Meanwhile you will ignore a link I sent that should peak your interest. There are over 2000 peer reviewed, comprehensive studies (not JUST epidemeology), that form the collection of material reviewed and agreed upon by all the major scientific academies around the world. You are a science deniar, like a climate change deniar, and evolution deniar, a vaccine deniar. You cling on to a minutia of questions (answered in the scientific literature), so that you don't have to change your opinion. Enjoy your unstudied non gmo food and willful ignorance.

Just to make it clear to everyone, horse meat is fine to eat providing its killed in an approved abattoir / slaughterhouse. The horse meat recently found in food products was illegally sourced and illegally killed in disgusting dirty abottoirs and then passed on as beef. Just think about that for a second.

Thank you Mr. Maher for being real and telling the truth. Except for 90% of all the big fish are extinct just thought you might want to up the percentage of scarcity. 93% of all the Food Sources around the Globe are owned by 6 Chemical Companies who call themselves Farmers or AgroBusiness. Monsanto and 5 other Chemical Companies goal is to control the Global Food Supply. They already own the largest seed supply in the world. I care about what I put in my mouth!   MonSATAN and its FRANKENFOOD is Killing people in Maui County and the Rest of Hawaii with their exorbitant usage of Pesticides that are so ubiquitous you cannot even breath. It is like Little China here with the HS&C Cane Fields and their Round Up Ready (Glyphosate) they burn along with the PVC.  Now throw an astronomical amount of pesticides being used multiple times a day in Hawaii. Monsanto and Dow both are spraying restricted poisons 80 different types up to 16 times per day. The amounts are staggering.The food is horrible and not nutritious. Label and prove that GMO's are Safe!  They can't that is why both Monsanto and Dow spent in excess of $12 million dollars to throw a County of Maui vote by the people to put a Moratorium on Monsanto and Dow. The people won Monsanto and Dow sued the Grass Roots Movement....and it gets worse. A vote means nothing if Corporations like MonSATAN can take our vote away!

Not wanting meaningless and uninformative labels on your food doesn't qualify as "not caring what's in your food". The same unscientific claims made over and over again by people who can't keep up with conventional wisdom in the scientific community.
Roysten Mantis (3 года назад)
You might say, "But a product telling me there are GMOs in it DOES tell me something about the product because that's something I specifically want to know." My point is, the only reason you want to know that is because you literally don't understand what it is, and saying you do is just wasting everybody's time. Label all you want, but how about you make it a label that tells us something useful?
Roysten Mantis (3 года назад)
The thing is, "This product contains GMO" isn't a useful label because a product being genetically modified says almost NOTHING about the product's chemical makeup. If you want to label things, write "This product has been genetically modified with (insert gene here) to (insert benefit here)". But instead, you want a big fat "GMO" on your food, which is only useful for people who don't know science.
sweetlitlangel (3 года назад)
+Roysten Mantis I  am clear on what GMOs are and that doesn't change the fact that I want to know whether the food I'm consuming is GMO or not. GMO's. Knowing what something is goes hand in hand with knowing if it's on your plate or not. Having labels comes from knowing not ignorance.
Roysten Mantis (3 года назад)
+sweetlitlangel I actually clearly care a lot more than you about what I eat, because I'm willing to do a little research and ACTUALLY FIND OUT what's in my food, rather than say "I WANT A RIGHT TO KNOW" and then not understand anything about food science in the first place. Your argument stems from scientific ignorance and you're WAY late to the game if you think there's still a debate about GMOs causing health effects.
sweetlitlangel (3 года назад)
and if they end up causing health effects?? Or are just going to wait until it's too late to care.,Either way simply because ou don't care about what you eat and evidently the nutritional value doesn't mean other people don't care. Either way why are the ;labels such a big deal I mean just like anything else I think people should be able to decide whether or not the want to consume such things. It seems as everyone likes to ignore what people want and just force crap on us and then we have people like you that wants to be an anchor holding us down simply because we don't want to remain in the dark.

Italian here, it's not only edible, it's fucking great. I don't have anything against USA but people from your country should start accepting the fact they're the exception, not us. Most countries in the world eat it and people can find horse meat in most malls. Different countries have different cultures and I understand the deep love americans feel for their big pets, I wouldn't add cat meat to my diet, it would feel like betraying my cat in some way. But I would try it and even if it would make me sad to know that somewhere there are people killing cats for consumption, I wouldn't be an hypocrite insulting them (It's just an example, I don't even know if such countries even exist, I don't think cats are that good for intensive farming or farming in general. I do know though that during the war my people ate cats, dogs, rats and even worse stuff...but that was all about surviving so it's quite different lol)

I would have thought that dogs, and even more, cats, being primarily carnivorous, would not taste very nice, while horse, like cow and deer, are primarily herbivore, thus tasty. (I've eaten horse meat in Belgium and in France, but somehow there is a reluctance in UK to eating horse meat.I cannot see why. Venison is popular pretty much world wide. I can see where China gets it's 'famine-food' from, and I do not despise any culture for what it eats, as long as that culture respects (ie does not torture or inflict unnecessary suffering) to that animal. Killing for food is essential, whereas killing for fun is horrible, and altogether human.
Our Lord and Saviour Nicolas Cage (2 года назад)
+John Benton It is actually nothing more than a racist stereotype which many simply abuse to offend people of Chinese or oriental origins. The Swiss eat cats and the Italians eat horses, but you don't see any bigoted internet comments about those cultural delicacies, do you? It is interesting to note that one of the earliest (if not THE earliest) campaigns against the consumption of dog meat started in ancient China, during the Song Dynasty. This is why they have this saying in China, "gou rou bu shang zhuo", meaning dog meat is not considered a high-class (respectable) cuisine. The practice nevertheless continued by going "underground", as China has a famine culture meaning they have to make do with what they have to survive. Yes, dog meat is eaten in China, but it has never been part of their culture, and is only eaten by a tiny minority, and there is no evidence that suggests otherwise.

GMO oh please humans have been genetically modifying the DNA of every animal and plant we have cultivated as pets, labour, and food ever since we discovered fire, like the organic farming is any better there is a reason why that shit is so expensive because the farmers are lazily fucktarded in more ways than one. They leave everything to nature so when disease hits the crops a good chunk of those crops are dead, they don't water their crops regularly through irrigation tunnels they wait for rain because their excuse is "dems govment water", which means when organic farms in Texas get hit with a heat wave there goes another portion of their crops, they have no means of animal deterrents scarecrows don't do shit since there are other things smarter than a sparrow that don't fall for it such as crows, ravens, raccoons, wild pigs, bears, basically anything smarter than an organic farmer and a temper of Charlie Sheen and thats another section gone, and when other occurrences happen such as thieves, vandals, the occasional drunk teenager who decides to have his/her way with the corn, cucumbers, and bananas that the customers are going to eat so that's another section of crops they can't sell, everything else is all natural so the surviving crops make it to market. It would not surprise if some fringe meat industry tries organic meat farming and they would be more expensive than the fruit and vegetables.

None of the examples Bill cites have anything to do with GMO or the labelling law. What exactly is the fucking point of this?
Jeff Holiday (3 года назад)
+youngatnaruto 'Rogue genes' is a very bad term for that. Again, you are not sciencing very well. You cannot throw a bunch of nucleic acids at a genome and get it to change. It doesn't work that way. Our cells error correct in remarkable ways to maintain genetic purity and cellular integrity. You body right now is fighting off tumors, but it takes an incredible amount of chance for the right conditions to present themselves for you to develop cancer in the absence of carcinogens. And even if you did manage to make a rogue DNA strand with a rogue protein expression? So what? That is one cell with one avenue of cellular progeny. And it very well might get eradicated through various biological functions. I know you don't understand this, and this is why you are afraid. But really, if you'd go take a class you will be set free from your fear. Knowledge is power. 
youngatnaruto (3 года назад)
+Jeff Holiday it still has been proven false that one gene does not equate one protein it reacts unpredictable creating rogue genes when used in gmo.this method was used by  George Beadle he was even awarded a nobel prize for it,this is the basis on what gmo is based on.which as been proven false by the human genome project in 2001 or 2002 im not sure which year.but by then it already became wide spread in monsanto, there is no way they are going to admit any wrong doing or change anything esp because of their history which shows that monetary benefits are more important than any thing else 
Jeff Holiday (3 года назад)
+youngatnaruto Something is not a hypothesis when you sequence the genome afterwards and have direct factual evidence. That is not how science works. You're failing at 'sciencing'.
youngatnaruto (3 года назад)
+Jeff Holiday how does it work,how do they insert a desirable gene into foods. one gene one hypothesis is the science gmo is based on.search up one gene one enzyme.of course the monsanto founded universities will not tell you that the same way the koch brothers have brought and paid teachers in florida to teach only their ideaologies.every other modern country has wised up and tries to avoid gmo but not us we let politicians  be lobbies by billion dollar corporations to distort facts and sell out only for profit.this is another nail in the coffin for us.read my previous previous statement
Jeff Holiday (3 года назад)
"The science of genetic engineering relies on the theory that inserting one gene will produce one desired trait." No, no it does not. Yes, I understand you don't grasp that and you want this to be a simple issue, just like Bill here does. It isn't. It doesn't work that way. I'm sorry.

I voted against the GMO labeling bill because attacking Genetic Modification is completely missing the issue. It's attacking science instead of attacking shitty companies like Monsanto. *Provably*, there is nothing wrong with eating genetically modified foods. It just sounds "scary" to people. Now, that being said, GMO's have obviously been misused by the like of Monsanto to do all kinds of awful things like make corn resistant to harsh pesticides and to enforce patents on seeds. But GMO foods have insane benefits, like reinforcing rice with additional minerals so that, to those who eat it as a staple food, you don't need to eat anything else. This prevents all kinds of malnutrition that lead to things like blindness in the third world. Crops can also be engineered to resist droughts and grow in harsh conditions, increasing yields and preventing starvation. This is something we've done for millennia. Genetically speaking, modification and selective breeding are basically identical. This provides risks of its own, like breeding genetic monocultures which can be wiped out by a single strain of disease. But traditional selective breeding has the same risk, which is why the yellow banana is currently under threat from a certain deadly fungus (much like the Irish Potato Famine which was caused by a similar fungus). But forcing foods to be labeled as GMO is to indicate to uniformed people that something is "wrong" with that food. So now a shitload of food isn't going to be bought or sold because morons have convinced other morons that genetics, instead of the actual product in question, can make something dangerously *inherently*, as opposed to through expressed straits! So now no one will fund *good* GMO research because the public would be wrongly convinced that something is inherently wrong with it. That was a dumb idea. If you think something is dangerous, prove what it is and ban that instead. If you hate Monsanto, ban their products. But making people afraid of genetic research is insanely damaging to the future of mankind, which is probably going to rely on GMO's more and more as Climate Change devastates our ability to grow crops in traditional ways.

We did not genetically engineered food for millennium it was hybridization.You must be fresh from school what do you study agriculture I think not? GMO is proven to make people sterile ya know it is when you cant have children and +++++ crops are not immune to bad soil or harsh conditions ++++ you have to spray  them with "glyphosate " to kill weeds and weeds are most toughest bio organisms on Earth so if it kills them imagine what it will do to you +++ so many ++++ I have worked in milk industries so I can tell you from first hand they usually throw 50% of their products in garbage because of deadline expiry and that is because we cant spend it how much they can produce ++++ all those products who have bad label are throw in garbage. Imagine that they throw milk only because of bad label???? wwwhaaa what a shock and half world is hungry wonder why? So is problem 1.Food or 2.Distribution i think that answer is number 2. and GMO are only here to reduce world population which is not growing but will reach its maximum of 9 billion in 2030 and fall to 1/2 of what it is now.

we have too many goddam people on the planet.  some countries do have declining populations but most are growing and many at a ridiculous rate.  i know lots of people say that population isn't the problem but it certainly isn't helping the situation any.  thankfully we are working on the ability to grow our meat in a lab, which is pretty close to replicator technology from star trek.

We add label for ingredients that are potentially harmful or repulsive for a part of the population. GMO food is NOT any more harmful than its non-GMO counterparts. That is a fact endorsed by authoritative scientific entities, backed by scientific researches. It should not be repulsive if it not harmful. Adding label would only add unnecessary production costs and monitoring costs. It is a shame Bill fails to see that point. His metaphor in this video is so logically full of holes, that it is not funny at all.

No...what i'm saying is the action of the Bt toxin is known already. It's not new. They discovered it in 1901, it was used for pesticide from 1920. So you want them to continue testing for another century? If they FIND a chemical in beetroot then it's a NEW one because they didn't already know about it. So yes it would need testing and YES it would also be a NEW one. Maybe you need to research the subject
cojanti (5 лет назад)
So when they find a promising anti-cancer chemical in beetroot, they don't do trials because it's not 'NEW'??? What you're saying is that no GM technology should be tested, because the spliced genetic material is all from natural sources? Come on... This is basic stuff. You clearly need to have a bit of a think about your point of view. I won't be replying anymore.
diceman199 (5 лет назад)
The reason for medical trials is to test NEW things. The effects of this toxin are already known along with the conditions needed to activate it. It is only active under alkaline conditions and those are not found in human beings. So the toxin does not become a toxin in human digestive systems. So we know the effect already and it has been extensively tested on other mammals with similar digestive systems. It's not speculation.
cojanti (5 лет назад)
& on the point of HCL production. There's a test called the Heidelberg test where subjects swallow a ph sensor. Some diseases, including Pernicious Anaemia, have an autoimmune element which destroys the parietal cells, stopping all HCL: production. phcapsule com has some results on the ph disorders page. One test showed a person with a constant ph of between 7 and 8 without a challenge. Now this is far from conclusive - but it represents a departure from the theory and should be investigated.
cojanti (5 лет назад)
All chemistry is theory until put into practice. Real world application always presents new challenges not present in the theory. If it didn't, there would be no need for medicinal clinical trials, or biotech field trials. This is perhaps the most basic element of the practice of science - find a theory - and then test it in the real world! I'm sure the BT toxin / alkaline theory is true - but until it is tested in the real world, we don't know the effect on the population & cannot speculate
diceman199 (5 лет назад)
Chemistry is chemistry. It doesn't change & it's not theory. The Bt toxin is only dangerous in actively alkaline situations. achlorhydric (pH > 4.0) stomachs - still acid in nature As for people with actual alkaline stomachs ph>7 I'd be interested in your source for that as I've been unable to find any reference to that.
cojanti (5 лет назад)
Yes - normal conditions.. But there are many who have abnrmal digestive systems - like those who suffer from Achlorhydria. Some people have demonstrated a constantly alkaline stomach ph, despite the addition of hcl tablets. Without long term human studies - you are just pulling theories out of the air. The focus should be on GM producers to prove safety - NOT the rest of us to prove harm.
diceman199 (5 лет назад)
That's not actually correct. It doesn't fluctuate into an alkaline state. Normal range for gastric acid is between 1.5 to 3.5. That acid is what denatures the proteins and the stomach, under normal conditions, is always in an acidic state. The bicarbonate production is as a buffer to ensure the stomach doesn't become to acidic. Stomach lining protection is done by the pH neutral gastric mucus layer. With low HCL production comes lower bicarb production, solution still acid in nature
cojanti (5 лет назад)
Without long term human studies your point is moot - especially as the human digestive system fluctuates between an acid and alkaline state as the stomach first produces hydrochloric acid, followed by sodium bicarbonate to neutralize and protect the lining. What happens to people with low HCL production? Or when high concentrtions of the BT protein are found next to the endotheleal cells when they excrete the sodium bicarbonate? These questions remain, meanwhile 88% of corn is now GM.
diceman199 (5 лет назад)
When a target insect eats the Bt-containing plant, the protein is activated in the gut of the insect, which is alkaline (human guts are acidic), and in the alkaline environment the protein partially unfolds and is cut by other proteins, forming a toxin that paralyzes the insect's digestive system and forms holes in the gut wall. Or to put it another way...it simply cannot affect humans. It needs alkaline environment to work as it evolved to affect insects. Acid based digestion not affected.
cojanti (5 лет назад)
Sure - but in the case of BT corn we see the genetic material of a bacteria incorporated in to the plant. This would never happen in nature or traditional breeding - and yet it fills our food chain - its everywhere! The safety of this is based on topical application where the toxin degrades in a few hours in sunlight, so never reaches us. But this doesn't happen with bt corn because it is systemic - and that is concerning, because the toxin has never been tested properly for human consumption.
