Sorting through the confusion about GMO's

The relatively new practice of genetically engineering our foods in ways that could never occur in nature raises legitimate health and environmental concerns. Yet, sensible GMO labeling that would enable Americans to make informed choices about the food we eat has consistently blocked by the biotech and food industries.

bluffwood creek - It takes years for humans to develop cancers under constant low levels of toxicity. Glyphosate has been proven to cause cancer in lab tested mice and rats, meaning we have a really high chance of that transferring over to us. If 90%+ of americans consume glyphosate, it's really hard to produce a legit study for the 5-10 years it might take for the cancers to develop. We don't have GMO labeling in the states; the senate is trying to kill it. Not everyone can afford to go all organic. In some areas of the country its over double the cost. Also, you aren't USDA organic.

Roundup a probable carcinogen? As an organic and CNG farmer (Certified Naturally Grown - naturallygrown.org) there's a lack of testing to suggest this... yet. It seems, according to California, just about everything causes cancer. But the WHO is playing fast and loose with no evidence, (are you really gonna trust the U.N.?) protecting themselves with the weasel word "probably." There is no "probably." either it does or doesn't. As it stands, their position means absolutely nothing.

"Farmers can no longer save soybean seeds and must buy new GMO seeds each year..." Absolutely untrue. I grow organic soybeans and they are available locally from multiple sources. organic means non-GMO. I can save all the seed I want. Only farmers who specifically buy GMO beans become obligated by contract with the biotech companies, to sell them back all the seed. Why is that so hard to understand? You don't want to dance with biotech? Then don't use their stuff and sign the contracts. "Americans want GMO labelling" They already have it. Want "Non-GMO?" then buy certified organic or CNG.
