The evidence is mounting that GMOs should be considered experimental and hazardous. Let's support legislation that limits the planting of GMO seeds.

Many people seem to be the Guinea pigs here in the experimentation stage. We don't know the long term effects and I don't trust GMO.

GMO is a slippery slope. Sure, humankind has been genetically controlling our food sources for thousands of years, but now we can make sweeping changes in minutes not centuries. What are the boundaries of this manipulation? If the "system" can get away with a little change as "not harmful" or "safe", why not a little more...a little more...soon square fish??

A D, please quit confusing genetic engineering with natural selection & hybridization, they are not at all the same. Genetic engineering involves inserting genes into organisms that could not happen in nature.

Those sweeping changes that happen in minutes? Not happening, they take years of research and several millions of dollars before they are thrust upon us without adequate testing.

Just say no to GMO!

Wish we could "just say no". IF we always knew it was GMO we might be able to avoid it. However, as we are learning, there are GMO items in the end products making it difficult to just say no. Yes, if we buy organic and stick to one ingredient items we can avoid GMO items but truly, not everyone can afford to buy organic either. Quite the conundrum.
