    Not ready to give up those GMO Cheerios Rev? Yeah sure they might reduce colesterol as part of a heart healthy diet but they cause tumors and sterility in lab rats. No big deal right?

    Some studies even suggest GMOs are changing our DNA.

    Some countries don't want to have GMO's forced down their throats by huge corporations like we do here. Imagine that.

    Japan no longer buys our wheat because they fear it might be contaminated by Monsanto's GMO wheat.

    Obama isn't the only one in Monsanto's corner. Romney worked on the PR campaign to "improve Monsanto's image" after the Agent Orange episode.

    Monsanto OWNS Obama. Just another broken campaign promise from team zero. Actually, I'm quite surprised you're not blaming Bush, and excusing Obama on this.

    I read it and I do not care that other countries ban any food. Why is that our concern? As far as Obama is concerned there are bigger problems right here he has caused.

    No need to be concerned Rev just keep eating the GMOs and looking for another Monsanto man you can agree with to replace the current Monsanto man you don't agree with. It'll all work out.

    We were given a choice between two Monsanto men last time but the democratic party's Monsanto man won. Maybe the republicans will have better luck getting their Monsanto man elected next time eh?

    very informative article, CBT.
    Thanks.
    Answers part of my bewilderment on why so many Americans have so many illnesses and diseases that don't seem to be so much "in vogue" among Asians like cancer.
    It's the food we eat.

    Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy . . . commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. I Tim. 4

    That's hype. Besides, health is directly related not so much to what one eats, but how much one eats.

    Look who's doing the banning. Socialist countries.

    I have a friend who is a Christian and owns a huge farm in S. Texas. He cares about his work and he has researched this issue for himself. His conclusion: most of what is posted on the internet about GMO is not based on any sort of scientific fact whatsoever, but rather based upon hype.

    You should read the bill team zero signed to protect Monsanto. They're not to be held accountable for the negative effects of their products.

    Also think about all the slaughtered horses we send over there...both domestic & mustang. They love eating that. No bans there.
