This comment section is a microcosm of the dysfunction in the world today.  A lot of arguments and name calling.  I personally believe from the research I have personally done that leads me to believe that most of the people who use their real names here are putting out the facts while the naysayers seem to all have funny names that hide their identity.  And I am amazed at how the ones arguing that Glyphosate and GMO's are safe are perfectly comfortable telling everyone that this stuff is safe and seem to have no concern for the health of their fellow human being.  This has to stop at some point.  Everyone needs to wake up and see the truth.  Food, water and air are supposed to be pure if you want to get the nutrients from them.  Farming should be growing healthy food without neurotoxins in it.  If you need to till the weeds, till the weeds.  Don't design crops you can spray poison on and then sell them into the food chain.  Just don't do it.  The use of Roundup causes fields to become wastelands

Plus, I dont care if GMOs are safe or not, the whole idea of them is thoroughly disgusting and the fact that BOTH left and right are complicit in sneakily, secretly forcing this in the public should tell you that 1. It is Evil and 2. Probably not safe and 3. That about four or five corporations own and control ALL Western political parties and governments

For starters, if government was concerned with the public health, there wouldn't be so many overweight people. Contrary argument can be made: if nonGMO foods had better demand, producers would put it on the label voluntaraly.
Popeye Gordon (5 месяцев назад)
Oh bullshit. Fat people can not and will never be controlled by 'the government' for any reason. There are a dozen different reasons people can be too fat and the definition itself of 'too fat' is arbitrary. There are ALREADY foods with the non-GMO label and organic has always been non-GMO. You're kinda stupid, aren't you?

Si le produit est suisse, il est probable que l’animal n’a pas consommé d’OGM. Les agriculteurs suisses renoncent volontairement à donner ces soja et maïs génétiquement modifiés. Dans le cas de la viande importée, la probabilité qu’il en ait consommé est cependant plus élevée. En Suisse, comme les consommateurs boudent les produits à base d’OGM, ils ne sont presque pas vendus, sauf dans certaines circonstances. C’est le cas de certains fitness qui importent des barres de céréales directement des États-Unis, où la loi n’oblige pas les fabricants à déclarer la présence d’OGM (c’est alors illégal chez nous). La situation en Europe est assez semblable où la plupart des pays renoncent à cultiver des OGM, sauf que le fourrage OGM pour animaux y est largement importé, ce qui n’est PAS le cas de la Suisse. What metric tons of US grown GMO ??? That's shit of Troll.

Tiwi the fool does not even know what Switzerland's GMO policy is: "However, in Wednesday’s decision, the cabinet included an amendment to the law on genetically engineering that envisages the creation of GMO zones in certain parts of the country after 2021. These zones will be defined based on interest from farmers wishing to grow GMO varieties under a common entity,” said a cabinet statement. The goal is to separate GMO crops from conventional agricultural throughout the production chain and secure greater acceptance for the coexistence of GMO and traditional agriculture in the country, it said." https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/genetically-modified-organisms_government-approves-gmo-ban-extension/42260828 Most GMO bans are just protectionism for farmers that allows price fixing. Thanks to Tiwi for letting me make a fool of him here in a public venue, I really enjoyed it!

I think Batta Beru was also banned right before Achilles. Who can say, could be Russian troll bots. There is a trick called IP spoofing that lets you look like a different source. You think this was bad, it's almost nothing compared to what the Ted Miner virus has done with Disqus for the last 7 years. I posted 60,000 comments in that system before starting here, where the most intense anti-science comments are found. The TM troll had no less than 20 fake sock puppet accounts and to this day it still searches out and infects most web commentary about GMOs. It is obsessed with upvotes which are counted and tallied by the Disqus system so it upvotes itself in a frenzy of fakery. I estimate it has generated well over a quarter million nasty anti-GMO comments. Here is one example where most of the comments are from a single troll. If you look at the account profiles and who is upvoting who you can figure out quickly what is going on: https://www.agdaily.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=disqus&post_id=17482&post_title=Farm+Babe%3A+Vandana+Shiva+is+coming+to+my+hometown+to+lie

Wonder why the US is the only country that sells GMO? Every other country mostly have sanctions against and the EU has put out the reasons why, the studies speak for themselves and I would trust independent studies from other countries before I'd take a scientists word that is paid by the same corporation it's paid to protect. The scientists who tests these things should be in no way affiliated with the Fortune 500 company that is pushing the food or product. Anyone can see the potential bias here.

No worries about a the food supply regulated by smart biochemists and genetic engineers. F&^k 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 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!!

WOULD YOU ALLOW A MECHANIC WHO KNOWS ALMOST NOTHING ABOUT THE PARTS OF YOUR CAR TO WORK ON IT? This is exactly what Monsanto is doing, they know almost nothing about the 40,000 chemical compounds in produce? And yet they are moving from conventional genetic modification, to gene editing...This is "INSANE MONSANTO SCIENCE!" ---Read this simple statement below and become very afraid of what it says about the GMO science at Monsanto?... "How are Phytonutrients Classified?" "Some researchers estimate up to 40,000 phytonutrients will someday be fully cataloged and understood. In just the last 30 years, many hundreds of these compounds have been identified and are currently being investigated for their health-promoting qualities."

Bill has always been my least favorite liberal talk show host and this kind of shit is why. He likes to run his mouth about conservatives denying climate change but then supports the anti-science of being scared of GMOs. The consensus on GMOs being safe is nearly the same as climate change so you can't insult them on their idiocracy if you are going to ignorantly whine about the so-called "frankenfood" not being labeled so it can scare consumers for no good reason. And screw you too Rachael.

Tallis - all patents expire. The huge soybean crop patent has already expired. What will you bitch about now? :D indeed... No such thing as 'animal genes' vs. plant genes. There are only codes, a 3 million long string of the four letters AGTC make up DNA. AGTC code variations in a plant are no different than AGTC variations in an animal. It's all good and there are NO RULES about mutations. No rules at all, the only rule is that the new mutation must support life and survive natural selection. Any other imagined rules are fantasy. A carrot is always a carrot. There are no microscopic devil horns or swastikas on the DNA helix of lab altered genes.

2:39-3:05. The lady is the only person worth listening to. She gets cut off at the end after making the most relevant point anyone has made regarding GMO food. That point is, "I just want to know. If it´s safe, the onus should be on the corporation to prove that to the consumer. Don´t hide it in secrecy."... But then the other hosts cut her short without even listening. I appreciate her point, the rest was painful to listen to.
Kirkmania (1 год назад)
What if it's extremely difficult to convince/prove that to people who do not want to be convinced? Like global warming, where 99% of scientists agree yet so many people simply refuse it, sometimes proving or convincing people that something so stigmatised is okay is incredibly difficult to do. Yet GMO food can solve fundamental issues, perhaps even, someday, world hunger. If we force people to label it, yet cannot possibly convince some consumers that it is okay (regardless of whether it is actually okay or not), it may be unprofitable and dangerous for corporations to adopt it and progress it. Now we're holding back potentially a major, major development in nutrition and health and hunger, all because of that label coupled with the stigma. People do not always listen to facts and reason. Personally, I think gmo is simply a more efficient version of selective breeding. All our food has already been manipulated by humans to bring out traits that we desire, that increase yield, that improve aesthetics, that taste better or grow faster, simply by reproducing more plants with those genetics, and trashing the plants that don't grow like that. Is gmo not just that, except we can approach it with a delicate touch rather than a brute fist?

+Tallis Keeton, war and civil unrest did not break out until Assad cracked down on peaceful demonstrations in Damascus. The current situation is certainly his fault.
Tallis Keeton (1 год назад)
+Bejoy Sen I just dont understand why it is called regime - Assad was elected twice, before war there was normal political parties in their parlament  with normal oppositional parties, and as the war started (an imvasion of islamistic IS and Saudi forces and Turkey, and NATO) all the parties made a counsel of national salvage as it is usualy done in the time of war. So why Syria should not be having its own alliances with Iran and Russia and any other when they are occupied and invaded? Iran is islamistic of course but not as much as Saudis.
Bejoy Sen (1 год назад)
+Tallis Keeton, so to be clear, you agree with me that Iran is prolonging the conflict by indirectly arming the Assad regime and that that's bad but you disagree with me that the Assad regime is culpable in this conflict. If you don't think Assad is responsible here, then why do you assign guilt to Iran?
Tallis Keeton (1 год назад)
Assad's oppressive rule. Well, I can share your opinion about Iran, Arabia, and so on. They are making this more terrible - with the help of Turkey and USA. But what was this thing with Assad's opressive rule? There werent much time ago before this Syrian war when all western media had glorified Assad as young, democratic modernisation man who liberate women and economy. It was only around 2011 when they stoped this and began blow another trumpet. Ask yourself - when they were falsified Assad's rule - then or now? :)
Bejoy Sen (1 год назад)
+Tallis Keeton, true enough but it's not as if Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia are innocent in this conflict. In fact, they're the primary reasons this occurred in the first place- America just exacerbated the problem. Assad's oppressive rule allowed the Arab Spring to occur in his country, al-Maliki's sectarianism helped ISIS sweep over northern Iraq, Iran's indirect support for Assad through Hezbollah has prolonged the civil war, and Saudi Arabia's reckless funding of Syrian rebel groups basically created ISIS.

2:31 Before genetic modification, you randomly combined genes from two different gene pools and looked at the aggregate and chose the crops that performed the best. So I could have accidentally crossed a healthy plant with a carrier plant and got a diseased plant after a few generations. By taking a gene from a bacteria, you know exactly what you are introducing and it's easily replicable and causes less environmental damage than using large fields to find the perfect seed after thousands of crosses. GMO is the only type of breeding that requires environmental assessments too. So please shut up if you don't know anything about this. 2:42 I assume Rachel Maddow has the same opinion about allowing unpasteurized milk?

+Ali Eshtabi "There are tons of studies that suggest many of the GMO products use chemicals and bacteria that are linked to all sorts of issues." Citation needed.
gskibum (1 год назад)
+Ali Eshtabi There is currently no evidence to clear any potential health issues with any form of plant breeding, or any technology. Yet we don't slap a label on every damn product just to satisfy the ignorant and superstitious. A "GMO Inside" label does nothing to educate a consumer about whatever GMO traits that have been expressed in the crop. All it does is inform the scientifically ignorant and superstitious that a certain plant breeding technology was used to produce the crop. It's utterly meaningless. It also fails to educate the consumer that other forms of genetic modification would be exempt from such a label, and are in fact used in organic agriculture (chemical and radiation mutagenesis). Voluntary labels like Kosher and Halal already satisfy the superstitious. The current "GMO Free" voluntary label already satisfies the scientifically ignorant as well as the superstitious. All anyone who wants to avoid has to do is buy either organic or products labeled with that stupid "GMO Free: label that is already all over the damn place. You have no right to compel labels without science to back up the imaginary concerns of the ignorant. Using the word "we" means "we as a society."

+Ali Eshtabi, the rotating door between government and lobbyists already existed before GMO. GM ingredients are actually safer because only 1-3 genes are affected, we know which genes are affected, and they require environmental testing. Hybrid, polyploid, and mutant crops affect tens of thousands of genes imprecisely and do not require environmental testing. Which one is safer? BTW, every farm crop is either hybrid, polyploid, mutant, or GMO. Otherwise the world would return to substinence farming and a population of 1 billion.
Bejoy Sen (1 год назад)
+Ali Eshtabi, read the articles I posted. If you want to buy non-GMO, buy organic. Consumers already have a non-GMO option. Why should GMO companies pay for a company that produces non-GMO products(because that's what inevitably happens with labeling)?

Monsanto is doing the same as the tobacco companies did in the 70' 80' 90 and to some degree, still denying to this day that tobacco is not detrimental to your health , if Monsanto believes that GMO is not detrimental to your health ,then label it and let the people choose what they want to buy.

Lastly, the oft repeated idiom that no tests have proven any negative effects from GMO foods is an out right lie. Shills repeat this because the GM companies have done a Kafkaesque job of preventing studies on the grounds of "patent infringement," thus creating a self perpetuated hoax. However, they have not fully succeeded in this crusade. I observed research and images from a study where pigs fed gmo feed were tested against pigs fed non gmo feed. Pigs were a good test subject because of how much they eat. The stomachs of the gmo fed pigs were, yellow, shriveled, and visibly damaged. Many of them became gravely ill with severe digestive issues and often had shortened life spans. None of the non-gmo fed pigs had any of these effects. Look into this study and also the studies on root structures of GMO soy crop vs non gmo soy crop.
Ozy Mandias (2 года назад)
The free market is already correcting this. Companies are rushing to go natural and non-gmo. Consumers just need to boycott anything that is not verified as non gmo and the industry will have no choice but to respond.

and yet the majority of genetically engineered crops are used to feed our livestock animals which is a major cause of climate change. They clear out vast acres of land, decimate ecosystems by spraying copious amounts of pesticides to grow gmo wheat corn and soy and either produce highly processed garbage food for humans or feed them directly to livestock animals which contribute to climate change. If you are serious about stopping climate change you would also be against the mass use of gmo and pesticides. You would also probably be a vegan.

Hi again, welcome back... Yes, I have an interest in GMO expanding. I want to see food more plentiful, to use less land, to use less pesticides, and to require less labor. I want to see less waste through longer shelf life. I want to see some of the future possibilities, like hypoallergenic peanuts, simulated animal proteins, or food made more nutritious. That is my interest in genetic modification. That's why I defend science against ignorance where ever I can!
Marina Dobrescu (2 года назад)
because everybody who ever said anything good about Monsanto and the likes were either employed or had some interest in it expanding. I literally believe that the most healthy way to grow crops  for people to consume and for the soil is the organic way. Who knows, maybe in an ideal world that might happen...

And seriously, give it a rest with the obscenely hyperbolic strawman attacks. It's gotten old already. Maybe you must be a troll.

I'm not your slave. Do your own work. Were you to look for evidence rather than asking for it from me, you would find what I did.

You WANT that!? Why does post-war "democracy" breed so much emotional attachment to obedience to the power group's desired world view? You are emotionally attached to obeying what people who don't care about you in any other way want you to obey. Go find your own evidence and if it really leads you to the suicidal decision that you can't exist on this Earth without Round-Up creating superweeds and superbugs while killing everything but your one mono crop thereby killing your topsoil making it necessary to import petroleum based fertilizers and other soil nutrients to your farm each year, then go ahead and enjoy your chosen, evidence-based decision.

I'm going to have you look up "Shill Gambit" on Rational Wiki and look into just how devoid of intelligence your argument is right now. Get back to me when you know how to provide literally any shred of evidence for your bullshit claims, because so far you have claimed, without a the smallest iota of proof, that something is poisonous, without even realizing that the dose makes the poison. But hey, who am I to argue, keep breathing those chemtrails. Did Bush do 9/11 too? Is the moon a hologram? Is the Earth flat?

Do you get a bonus if you leave the last comment? Is that how it works? The last government shill I ran into the ground would never stop. Do you get paid per comment? Does the number of characters matter? Really, I'd like to know. Other government shills have confessed to how it works. That's how I know. I researched it. Why waste my time arguing the points when I know you're paid to comment. I'm certainly not paid at all. I'm just trying to make sure the truth is upheld. But I'm not going to try to prove anything to a paid government shill like you.

When you're a government shill or a Monsanto shill, how do they convince you to eat GMOs? Poisoned food? Don't worry - based upon the laboratory rats, you have about 10 years before you'll get cancer. That's why there is a direct correlation between when GMOs entered the markets place and cancer increases - including diabetes. But go ahead and enjoy your poisoned food!

Bill got it wrong here. GM crops have nothing to do with big dirty corporations like Monsanto except for some of their investments on research. It is largely based on initiatives in Europe. As a Masters student in Biotechnology I've read a lot of literature & research on GM crops & to date there have been no negative effects. Just ask Neil Degrasse Tyson who would beg to agree. Just because some crops have genes obtained from bacteria doesn't mean it's any different from the food you eat everyday because everything has gone through genetic modification over centuries of human selection. The corn you love to grill on weekends to the spinach kids hate to eat all looked, tasted & were genetically different a century ago as farmers kept on selecting only the breeds that were the sweetest, juiciest, biggest & most appealing. We've lost a lot of the natural nutrients in a lot our food including fruits & vegetables as a result. Fun fact: Certain Corn varieties 200yrs ago were as nutritionally rich & diverse as the ultra-healthy Spinach today. Or how about the bread, yoghurt & cheese you eat? All involve various types of bacteria & in the case of cheese feature live forms even after processing. So yes there has been a lot of campaigns of misinformation running around particularly in the US. Labeling the food as GM would not make much different since people still think it's dangerous. Educating the general public on the safety & validity of GM crops is key as they are the future as regions of fertile farm-able land decrease leading to a demand for high yield low maintenance strains of crops.
