    I don't endorse such technological tampering because the circulatory labels are one of the few copacetics promoting repertory behavior and docile exuding of feelings, GMO labels can fortify routines and asset evaluation.

    I think you should sign the petition too: http://act.credoaction.com/sign/GMO_QR_codes?sp_ref=184888105.4.153614.e.483451.2&referring_akid=.9630597.Vo4L-k&source=mailto_sp

    ...I will never understand how this was ever an issue. GMOs are not what you think they are. We've been genetically modifying food since we started farming, it's just that we're even better at it now. We are NOT injecting "toxins" or "chemicals" into foods, we're just selecting the traits in the foods that already exist and breeding them to have those more preferable traits, via genetics.

    Over 2000 studies have shown that GMOs are safe. These studies have NOT been funded by Monsanto or the like.

    I'm as liberal and tree-huggy as they come, but I'm also science-minded, and the science has spoken. Just because the anti-GMO bandwagon tries to invent a boogeyman where there is none doesn't make the boogeyman real.

    Um there is a huge difference between selective breeding and GMO. Gmo is the taking of genes from ANY organism and inserting them into another. For instance bt corn has bacterial genes inserted into corn, the corn wasnt cross bred with bacteria and strong seeds chosen for the next crop. It was done in a lab. Other things like fish genes in tomatoes etc

    It's the same concept, but with better and more accurate technology. These genetic modifications are done with a purpose: to make growing food resistant to pests so we aren't wasting as much of it so we can actually feed the starving planet. Without GMOs, that would be impossible due to the rise in population.

    Oh, and that whole fish tomato thing is useless to bring up since it never went to market (because it turned out to be not as effective at resisting frost as it was thought it could be).
