Biotech industries do everything they can to make sure that none of this information that the rest of the world is banning GMOs. They all know it is unsafe. The US is pushing it on their own citizens without letting them know the truth.
Especially with all the lawsuits happening now against Monsanto for poisoning the water in multiple cities in the US. Farmes suing for roundup causing cancer after the World Health organization called glyphosate a carcinogen.
Bad news for Monsanto. Too bad so sad.
It's the 38 other countries that banned them due to the research of their own scientists that clinches it. No more believing Monsanto scientists and their bought and paid for shills.
>we must save the niggers in little niglet land a.k.a afreeka (africa)
>but we must also ban the ability to save them through fortified foods that can fight against many of the vitamin deficiencies they face because some youtube video told me GMO's were bad xdddDD
>also lets keep spraying crops with poison instead of just genetically modifying plants to btfo pests because poison so tasty mmm
fucking libtards ho-lee-shit
Ding ding ding.
Why are hippies so fucking simple? Cauliflower was made by selective breeding so were cows, dogs, and white people. We don't ban them just because they were made more useful than nature intended.
Why do people think GMOs are bad again? Like fuck Monsanto and the ability to patent genes, but shouldn't we all be really excited about the Six Million Dollar Mango? We have the technology to make some seriously fucking cool shit with virtually no downsides.
Seralini study was retracted by a paid Monsanto shill that took over the Journal. Since then. Shill fired. Study was republished and peer reviewed. Then Seralini sued and won in court a libel against those who tried to discredit him.
Study stands even stronger now!
Look it up.
>The study was originally published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (Elsevier) in September 2012. It met strong criticism from the scientific community almost immediately, with concerns ranging from the validity of the findings to the proper use of animals in the study. In November 2013, Food and Chemical Toxicology retracted the study.
>After an in-depth look at the study's raw data, no definitive conclusions could be reached regarding the role of either NK603 or glyphosate in overall mortality or tumor rates, given the high incidence of tumors in Sprague-Dawley rats and the small sample size.
>Séralini himself threatened to sue FCT. . . [but did not since he had no case
People are fucking retarded and want to shun science that makes food easy to grow and extra nutritious and tasty because they don't fucking understand how basic genetics even works. It's ok goyim, just keep buying those less efficient, more expensive organic foods though!
The gene changes may slowly evolve into a poison, but we'd be able to easily test for that.
So yah. There is no downside. I think people imagine if we eat plants with spider DNA, we would also mutate, which isn't how it works.
Right now the technology out there is to sell chemicals. Glyphosate ready seeds. Seeds that produce a pesticide in it to kill bagworms. Seeds sprayed heavily with toxins.
There is no reason to feed the world because there is already enough food. The problem is with distribution. The drought resistant corn Monsanto came up with failed miserably. It was outgrown by Organic corn. Can you say failure?
Not to mention that, there are more independent studies,( not Monsanto paid for studies) that show it is a myth that GM plants outproduce organic plants.
First of all, what about stuff like golden rice? Crops that are actually superior nutrition-wise.
>Not to mention that, there are more independent studies,( not Monsanto paid for studies) that show it is a myth that GM plants outproduce organic plants.
I just looked for some, found none.
Unless you can link some, I'm going to assume you're making this up.
And we can save a fortune on distribution by growing locally grow genetically modified foods in harsh climates with no consequence.
We spray things with toxins to kill pests. Because if we left the pests, they would eat the food and we would die. So consuming a little bit of toxin is > than not eating.
The pests whether weed or bug are getting resistant to the chemicals sprayed. They are now growing without being effected by the pesticides and herbicides.
Wow. The shills come out in full force. The rest of the world is taking a stand. In the states there are lawsuits against biotech for damages happening. Monsanto shock plummeting. No one is listening to your dribble anymore.
HAHAHA, GMO's have literally saved millions of lives in third world countries. I am not talking about Monsanto neither.
Agricultural scientists have created wonderful crops that yield more in less space and grow in arid temperature.
ALL GMO'S ARE EVIL!!!!!!!!! WAAAAAAH.
fuck Monsanto but not all GMO's are bad.
I graduated with a degree in horticulture and soil management. I know exactly what I'm looking at. I have known since the beginning that Roundup was not safe. That was when Monsanto lied and said it was biodegradable.
They said agent Orange was safe too. I believe nothing they say or do. It is all based on bottom line for them. They don't give a shit about world hunger or healthy food and environment.
>I graduated with a degree in horticulture and soil management
Sure - from Calcutta Community College, right?
Monsanto was paid to make Agent Orange by the US Government. It was sprayed on Vietnam at the request of South Vietnam's president.
They still said it was 100% safe for the soldiers and people living in the area. They also said saccarine was safe. And DDT, 24d, Aspertame. They have lied about virtually every product they have to get it on the market.
I think someone maybe once pointed out a good argument once (like while messing around with genes can lead to good things, it can also lead to bad things when stupid people get involved, and the bad can't always be contained, look at killer bees and realize those are here to stay because some moron forgot to lock a door.) and then once the message spreads a little, people just started parroting the message "GMO's are bad" without really anything more than a vague idea of why they could be bad.
Also, pesticide GMO's aren't really a necessity now since someone invented a more efficient and more protective way to grow crops, protecting not only from insects, but from disease and even drought (They need much less water for plants grown this way).
The farm would be an expense at first, but the improved yield, decreased water bill, and the fact that a second story would turn 1 acre to 2 acres and so on would lead to increased profits later.
I don't think this farm technology can handle trees or even bushes yet, though.
So Tom Vilsack is trying to hold secret meeting to make sure that no state in the US will have GM labeling right. Tom used to work for Monsanto. Well, basically he still does.
>Have green house
>Grow my own fruits and veggies
Still hate Monsanto and their gmo's. They are being banned for a reason. Not enough research. Americans are the guinea pigs for them.
Taking a breed and breeding the best of it is not the same as splicing gene's. There may or may not be consequences but since the majority are banning them I wont eat them because that says a lot to me.
You fags who deny GMOs are the same as global warming deniers. You guys are literally denying the rest of the world more food. Get angry at the corporations who put restrictions on their GMOs they create.
99% of these retards have no idea what the real problem with GMOs is
The actual biggest issue is that retarded politicians decided that corporations could patent gene sequences and then sue farmers because bees pollinated their crops with copyrighted DNA
a shift to a majority of GMO crops will be absolutely necessary if we want human civilization as we know it to continue in to the next century
Outright banning them is stupid. The amount of lives GMO tech can save is too large to just simply ban and ignore it.
I don't think the poor malnourished little nigger children give a fuck if their corn is genetically modified or not. It's always pretentious faggot who think that shit labeled "organic" is healthier or some shit bitching about GMO's.
If we're to survive in an ever increasing population eventually we're going to have to start doing some crazy fucking shit with GMO tech.
The issue is that they refuse to label their food as GMO, I think. Which is something I agree is wrong. But yes, GMO's being banned is fucking retarded.
here you go faggots a nice short video to get the point across. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxU9sgX7_-E
1.We already produce way more than enough food. the problem is distribution and people not being able to afford it.
2. letting corporations have patents on seeds and crops is a terrible idea
3. gmo corn and soy is proven to cause kidney, liver damage and tumors in rats. And a few generations out from rats feed exclusively gmo corn and soy had had unhealthy, small, weak offspring but more importantly were STERILE.
Implying thats a bad thing? I mean i know being a brasilian must be the worst thing in the world, but a gun would fix you up faster than slowly killing yourself then undergoind vast amounts of pain just to die.
Any research that comes out against GM or the pesticides and herbicides the biotech industry tries to destroy the reputation of those who bring this research to,the forefront. Even if it is peer reviewed.
watch the video. Its more significant than ''needs more research''. Its been proven to be harmful. Its not like we didnt have enough fucking corn or soybeans before. It is unethical to not ban this stuff because of muh corporate profits if its harmful (which it is).
>also ban sex and drunk sex is RAPE
wtf is this strawman conflation shit? Are you literally a shill?
No. A shift away from GM crops is what is needed to help the planet. Are you kidding me? The way conventional farming is now it is depleting the soils of all the nutrients that are needed to grow food. Which in turn feeds the plants and gives them their nutrients. Not to mention all the pesticide and herbicide that cannot be washed off the plant or the fruit it bears.
What the actual fuck is wrong with you people.
Why can't we let sub Saharan negros be the guinea pigs for them?
They know they won't be able to subdue the US population with conventional (violent) means because of 2th amendment so they are weakening them with all kinds of degenerate food.
This is actually considered abnormal in the US.
>GMO's have literally saved millions of lives in third world countries.
So just because some GMO crops are good everything else get an automatic free pass?
You are as retarded as the people who defend mass immigration because some of them are doctors and shit.
>It was sprayed on Vietnam at the request of South Vietnam's president.
Which was a US puppet that rigged the election and got more votes then was even possible.
Lies, we ban GMOs because of pressure of anglo-based ONGs, not because we realize shit
It goes this way
-ONG with head in England/US sets here
-Spills info and propaganda translated from english
-All this shitty propaganda didn't convince people in Europe or America, but this ONG gets really friendly with current gov
-Convince current gov to believe in shitty propaganda
-Make new laws and 'Centre For Natioanl Fight Against GMO", rack millions in corrupt money from the gov for a shitty cause that dosn't make sense
-Send this money back to anglo home-base
Its a fucking scam and we all know it, just like global warming, stop it already
>1.We already produce way more than enough food. the problem is distribution and people not being able to afford it.
Entirely wrong. We only produce as much food as we do right now thanks to GMO crops and modern synthetic pesticides, revert back to entirely organic farming and crop yields will shrink significantly. There would no longer be enough food, literally billions would starve.
>2. letting corporations have patents on seeds and crops is a terrible idea
Sure, so ban that practice instead of banning useful and productive science.
>3. gmo corn and soy is proven to cause kidney, liver damage and tumors in rats. And a few generations out from rats feed exclusively gmo corn and soy had had unhealthy, small, weak offspring but more importantly were STERILE.
Even assuming all of that was 100% true, and not just bogus alarmist scare mongering, so what? You are talking about some clearly limited and uncommon side effects vs billions of people starving and dying.
Its not that we are against attempts to bioengineer our food to be cheaper
Its just that we think murkans are trying to poison the whole world
Thats why monsanto is explicitly mentioned in the article
I'm kind of sad that GMOs get banned and gene technology is _the_ evil of the 21th century
sure, the kill switch gene is a shit (greedy Monsanto & Co), but on the other hand yield per acreage exploded
sure, >>61055592 and just make this one crop resistant was not the best idea (same problem we have with MDR bacteria in hospitals), but nobody forced those greedy farmers to use it in the first place (except for the free market of course, kek)
GMO should've been a good technology, but it got used with the wrong intentions and now thanks to that shit it's demonized for the next 100 years at least.
You're blind to their exploitative "we own all seeds" practices. Sure poor farmers can use superior GMO seed for a better crop yield, but they have to keep paying every time they plant. And even now, African farmers struggle to turn profits against low-price exports (nevermind charitable donations) from North America and parts of Asia.
Africa cannot prosper on the market if they become 21st Century tenant farmers for someone else.
>GMO is unsafe
I bet you probably think that aspartame is unsafe too.
First of all I think you mean selective breeding since we are also talking about plants here.
Secondly most genetic engineering is geared towards just creating larger, tastier foods by increasing the expression of the responsible genes.
Also we do know what we're doing with those plants and we do know how to deal with them and keep them safe for human consumption.
Most food these days can be classed as GMO
This is due to the fact we've been selectively breeding the plants/animals with the desired genetic traits for years. So literally all we are doing is speeding up the process.
GMO's are the future retard.
Right now we are spraying crops with poison to kill pesticides that are killing the crops.
Those damn bugs are getting resistant against said pesticides.
Which is perfectly natural - the strongest (bugs) survive.
I honestly don't get the hate GMOs get.
We potentially get a crop that doesn't need to be sprayed with toxic chemicals, survives on less water, and yields more per square feet.
At the very least every country should fund more and more research into GMOs.
Sure there will be failures. Maybe 4 out of 5 GMOs will cause cancer.
That's why we need to fund research to find out what we need to do to produce a harmless GMO.
Being scared of GMOs is the same kind of thinking that fucked humanity over since the middle ages.
Why don't you anti-gmo faggots just admit that you're against GMOs because you find the concept frightening and want the government to protect your feels. That's it. You don't know shit about the science and everyone knows it.
>Even countries like Bosnia Herzegovina have smartened up
>''1st'' world countries like US and Canada keep eating poison food
You can't make this shit up.
The shit the FDA allows to be passed off as food is nothing short of disgusting and enraging, and makes me loose faith in this country more than anything else, by far
There wont even be a country left to rule over in a few decades at this rate, life expectancy and fertility is going to fucking tank
They're selling us out as fast as they can
Btw i hate faggot leftists and welfare, dont think im one of them
We're still dumping fucking fluoride in the water just because supposedly some poor dumb fucks who cant afford tooth paste or cant spend 1 minute brushing their teeth will have better teeth, resulting in everyones cancer rates increasing and causing thyroid problems because we're all fucking drinking it
Not to mention all the dentists who prescribe fucking fluoride tablets to be INGESTED for no apparent fucking reason at all since the only benefit they give is by rubbing them on bone topically and only cause massive fucking problems when actually consumed
What the fucking hell is going on.
We were among the first nations to ban both GMO and monsanto crap.
What the fuck are you talking about, you fucking retard? Putting fluoride in water supplies has been one of the biggest, cheapest and most efficient advancements in public health in the history of the world. I bet you think iodine in salt is also a bad thing.
Are there any Brazilians around Rio Grande do sul / Santa Catarina who are somehow involved / know about farming / agriculture? I have a few questions about your local flora.
>brazilians are just now "learning" about how great fluoride is
Yes the correlation had nothing to do with better living standards in general, we need to drink fluoride merely for the topical effects it has on our teeth just before being swallowed into our digestive system and totally fucking our shit up
>tfw I have potatoes in the over right now (nothing fancy, with skin and all, unwashed)
>tfw it's a new strain of potato, genetically modified to have slow release carbs
What's wrong with GMOs? From what I've heard that they are a safer way of combating insects and such, and you can grow crops that you won't be able to grow in that...environment? What's with the people wanting to Ban them? There isn't a study I could find about GMOs effecting people.
>GMO's have literally saved millions of lives in third world countries.
how is that a good thing
>GMO's have literally saved millions of lives in third world countries.
no they haven't. The seeds monsanto sells to farmers doesn't give them any seeds anymore (the plants are infertile) and this means they have to keep buying these expensive seeds. Many farmers have killed themselves because they went broke (they were only allowed to buy monsanto seeds, because monsanto bribes governments)
>saving people in third world countries
so they can flood europe?
