Should We Grow and Eat Genetically-Modified Food?

Should We Grow and Eat Genetically-Modified Food? | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it
A look at both sides of the debate on GMOs in food.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The laughter at introducing those against GMOs would lead to believe the audience is stacked against this side at the start of the debate. The man, Chuck says nothing humorous so it is more like they are laughing because "he" is the joke. I find it interesting that the Monsanto side now wants people to understand  how great their products are but don't want us to know which products contain them to promote their purchase... Could it be they are saying all this because they are very afraid people do not want to buy them and if given a choice they will not buy them as much?  Why spend so much to fight labels if these are all they say they are?  I say we need to go back to no patents on life.What do you think?  


There has recently been issue about how others can improve and research with patented life as companies and individuals race to patent every thing including cancerous samples and other life that should aid in open research to improve many aspects of life and medical treatments.  Also do we want these companies raising and totaling owning all our food products and wildlife? They only ones that have any claim to temporarily owning life are those that keep it alive and healthy each day and that is not these companies at the moment but our farmers.These companies should be paying them to raise their crops not the farmers paying for seeds. Still I don't think most of us would be comfortable with that arrangement either or want our food raised that way.


Cut patents and we will then see how interested these people are in feeding the poor and open government subsidies up to all seeds and seed saving not only GMOs in many 3rd world countries and see what is selected freely. Farmers have been selling their products for years and earning livings without patents and they still can. Monsanto can still sell their poison roundup and pesticide seeds as farmers have sometimes needed to buy seed in the past when for some reason they couldn't save seeds or preferred not to save seeds..I also could not get the full debate to load and see their is no comment section to the article. These companies do need to be held accountable for any future damages the caused because of what they had a patent on if it causes future or current problems.   Just an opinion what is yours?
