Are you for or against them?Why?
More people are getting sick from GMO's. What are common disorders today did not exist before GMO's.
6 Myths About GMOs | BIOtechNowMyth 1: GMOs are inherently harmful. According to a new report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine, there’s no evidence that genetically modified foods pose a risk to human health. In fact, GMOs are among the most thoroughly tested foods on the market. On average, it takes 13 years and $136 million before each genetically modified seed is approved. So it’s no wonder only 10 crops are currently approved for genetic engineering.
What You Need To Know About Genetically Modified Organisms | IFLScienceWhile the genes inserted into organisms occur naturally in other species, there are concerns that altering the natural genome may have unknown consequences. For example, modifications may change the organism’s metabolism or growth rate. There are also concerns that GM foods may expose new allergens to humans or transfer antibiotic-resistant genes to the bacteria naturally found in our gut.
A lot of fear was sparked about the safety of GM foods after a scientist named Gilles-Eric Séralini published a study that found rats fed with Monsanto’s glyphosphate-resistant corn developed more tumors and died earlier than controls. After these results, many demanded tighter regulations whereas others called for an outright ban on the corn. However, numerous problems with the study came to light which led to its retraction from the journal.
First off, Séralini is an outspoken anti-GMO activist. At the time of initial publication he had conflicting interests- he was releasing a book and a documentary on the research. For the experiments, Séralini used Sprague-Dawley rats that are prone to developing spontaneous tumors. He also only used 10 rats for each group, for a period of two years which is almost a rat’s lifespan. The study was described as a "statistical fishing trip" by reviewers - if you test enough variables for long enough, you'll get a result from something. This is not good science. The recommendation for carcinogenicity studies is that 65 or more of each sex should be used. There is a high probability that the results were due to chance.
Furthermore, there have been mounds of better designed studies that have found no health issues, further suggesting that poor study design is the likely reason for the results, not the GM maize.
European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Commission publishes compendium of results of EU-funded research on genetically modified cropsThis new publication aims to contribute to the debate on GMOs by disseminating the outcomes of research projects to scientists, regulatory bodies and to the public. It follows up previous publications on EU-funded research on GMO safety. Over the last 25 years, more than 500 independent research groups have been involved in such research.
According to the projects' results, there is, as of today, no scientific evidence associating GMOs with higher risks for the environment or for food and feed safety than conventional plants and organisms.
Oh Lord. I'm sure you know so I say this not for your sake but it is physically impossible for water to be "Organic".It already is...
Which is why I plan on selling organic air instead.
because water is not natural enough without adding a man-made product to it? Sure. Why the fuck not.Sparkling/seltzer/soda. Perrier, if you want to get really strict on "natural". There seems to be push for more home carbonized recently, or I've seen more commericals/ads, at least.
Lol, I already know that! It's called a joke dude!Oh Lord. I'm sure you know so I say this not for your sake but it is physically impossible for water to be "Organic".
Fucking yuppies. read a Goddamned book. Or just google for shit sake.
Well, organic refers to containing carbon, technically, so I was joking a bit. Few bother with proper chemistry terminology, natch. Spring water's already long been an issue when they mean "natural", especially as it can be naturally poisonous. Tap's often safer, even when avoidably toxic. Perrier is ironically both carbonated and naturally so, and, bonus, I don't think it happens to be poisonous. Random generic "sparkling" is still probably safer. Nitrates, IIRC.Oh Lord. I'm sure you know so I say this not for your sake but it is physically impossible for water to be "Organic".
