    Don’t like enhanced foods? Fine, don’t eat them. While you’re at it, quit trying to sneak into our country so you can eat the stuff on our dime, too!

    problem is that GMO corn pollinates regular corn, and has been doing so for years… so we don’t have the choice to NOT eat the stuff

    From a cost-benefit perspective, a major benefit of GMO crops is that they aren’t killed by broad-spectrum herbicides like Roundup. This allows farmers to hire fewer workers and spray more chemicals. And Monsanto makes money from both the seeds and herbicides. Of course, neither Monsanto nor the farmers accept any responsibility for these chemicals polluting our ground water and washing into our rivers.

    The overuse of herbicides has also created mutations of super weeds. And guess who will make a lot of money with a new herbicide for them?

    As another example, some of Monsanto’s GMO crops were bred to produce their own insecticides. But this upset the ecosystem, killing many smaller insects that previously kept larger and more destructive insects in check. So farmers now have a new set of destructive insects to worry about. And guess which company has an insecticide for them?

    Many of Monsanto’s claims regarding higher output from GMO seeds have also been found to be false. One example: Monsanto sold GMO cotton seeds in India that they promised would produce much more cotton and were therefore well worth their much higher cost. India’s cotton farmers had historically planted their own seeds and didn’t have to buy any, so this was a significant cost increase to them. What Monsanto didn’t tell the farmers was that the GMO cotton plants required more water. When a drought hit, the GMO cotton plants weren’t so “productive”, thousands of farmers couldn’t pay back their loans (used to buy the expensive seeds), and the banks foreclosed on them. Of course, Monsanto claimed no responsibility.
