"It all exists for one reason. So one or two companies can claim IP on DNA in food and therefore monpolise / control it."

Yes, that's Monsanto.

You know, I don't care if GMOs are harmful to me. Sure, it sucks, but it`s better than the alternative. I`m just simply too poor to buy non-GMO food. Lets face it, without GMOs, there would be a lot less food, and a lot of people would starve. If I develop cancer because of it, fine, I made it further than I would have without the GMOs.

So the connection between ADHD and insecticide use has been tied together after 4 decades even though it was "Studied at length" at the time and now look.
And GMO's have NOT been studied anywhere near as much as insecticides were so what do you think that will lead to?

I am not opposed to GMO`s. Goodness knows that quite a few medicines [such as Insulin] are produced by GMO bacteria.
I just have issues believing that a plant that is designed to cause the stomachs of insects to rupture is safe for long term human consumption.
Monsanto and Union Carbide and the rest do NOT have the best public safety records.
Nor do I trust the fact that ALL testing has been internal and they have sued EVERY outside facility that tried to conduct independent testing on their products.

If you are proud of your product, you typically plaster it all over the packaging.
There is just too much to indicate that they are trying to hide something.

Freak: "I don't like it being "beta tested" on people without their consent."

First off, no one is being "beta tested" with GMO foods. If anything, cattle and poultry were the second layer of testing outside labs.

"It should have been studied at length first before going out on the market."

They have been and there are no ill effects.

Argus "one or two companies can claim IP on DNA in food and therefore monpolise / control it."

No lawsuit so far has given any company the right to patent DNA. They can protect their research data, but not the DNA itself.
