Countries heavily invested in GMOs, ie U.S.A. and Canada, have zero food security issues. In fact, they eat too fucking much.

Or do you think glyphosate-resistant corn, soy, cotton, and canola are somehow saving the planet? Instead of responsible and timed application of glyphosate, farmers just haphazardly soak fields in the stuff, creating a nice selective pressure that has already resulted in the discovery of glyphosate-resistant weeds. And the effect of glyphosate on suppressing fungi antagonistic to phytopathogens. Not to mention the high amounts of glyphosate residue entering our food supply, which clearly has an impact on our gut microbiota.

If there were no GMO foods it would have zero impact on your quality of life. But no, you need your corn ethanol and ubiquitous soy in all your food. Soyboys demand more efficient soy production! Maybe you'll be lucky and we'll find out that glyphosate swings the gut microbiota in favor of species unable to metabolize genistein, so you'll have an even richer Soyboy body.

And nowhere did I say GMO R&D should be abandoned. There are two types of scientific illiterates: those who are afraid and those who aggressively accept everything under the guise of progress. GMO crops have had zero impact on food security in the western world. We should continue R&D to develop potentially useful crops that can be employed when needed and when deemed that their potential risks are heavily outweighed by their benefits.

Losing glyphosate, the most important herbicide ever, because of irresponsible usage brought on by Roundup Ready crops is a travesty.

If we ended all GMO crops at the next harvest cycles, it would create a famine that would kill a few hundred million people.

If we went all organic on top of that, we'd kill well over a billion.

There would be wars, disease outbreaks, and massive financial crisis to accompany it.

Apparently they offer to remove the plants if this happens, but yeah big companies will always engage in shady practices. They should be watched for that. But it doesn't have anything to do with GMO foods themselves, it's just about Monsanto specifically as a business which is kind of a separate issue.

We're eating atoms.

Atoms are the building blocks of everything in the universe and the human body consists of around a billion billion billion atoms for every ten kilograms of body weight. That's a number with twenty seven zeros behind it. I'm about 60 kg so I have around:
6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
...atoms in my body. That's a pretty big number because that's a lot of atoms.
Each and every single one of those building blocks that make up my body came from the food that I've eaten throughout my lifetime. My body is literally made up of the food that I eat. You and me both.
You are what you eat.

I prefer to build and replenish my body, my mind, and my core essence with the natural goodness that was provided to me by Mother Nature. Not some genetically engineered frankenfruit potato that started life in a petri dish under a microscope laden with steroids and aids that cows can't even digest with their four stomachs and digestive enhancing holes that faggot scientists use to practice their fisting technique on.

So I say no NO to GMO.

GMO crops have massively increased yields (overall tonnage produced per acre) by being resistant to common ailments (pests, disease, glyphosate resistant) and increased the areas available to support crops (drought resistant, heat resistant, etc).

Those 'starving' countries you mentioned?
Have all more than doubled their populations.
The population of subsaharan Africa has multiplied 5.5x over in the last 50 years.
The UN projects a further 5-6x population growth over the next 50 years.

Agricultural production in a few key African nations actually fell massively in the 90s and 2000.
The Chinese are currently turning those trends around. They do it in a way that makes Africans miss the Europeans.
But whatever.

>GMO crops have massively increased yields (overall tonnage produced per acre) by being resistant to common ailments (pests, disease, glyphosate resistant)

The numbers being cited for increased productivity from the adoption of Bt-transgenic corn and other crops are invariably from 2005, a year considerably lower in insect infestations than previous surveyed years. The increased profit margins are from reduced insecticide use, not productivity. And we won't even discuss the issues with planting millions of acres with crops that are toxic to Lepidoptera, an order that contains innumerable key pollinators.

>and increased the areas available to support crops (drought resistant, heat resistant, etc).
Describe commercially-used GMOs with drought and heat tolerance that are currently being used. There are none. And you mean drought and heat tolerance, not resistance. You clearly don't understand the difference between these terms.

The rest of your post is basically saying we should prop up war-torn countries with unsustainable populations and birth rates. Yeah, sounds like a real long-term vision.

And agriculture fell in several African nations because of war and instability, not because they lacked GMO tech.

Like most people, you champion GMO crops based on mythic plant lines that literally do not exist commercially and beyond controlled lab or field tests.

I'd much rather make scientific, fact based policy than ban shit because it sounds like scary chemicals.

Also, GMO labels are super misleading, there is no one dietarily relevant characteristic binding "GMOs" together, GMO is a super broad term and there is certainly nothing inherently bad about it. Putting GMO warning labels on this just serves to trick uneducated people into thinking GMOs are bad
The natural food lobby has already spent insane amounts of money trying to trick people into thinking GMOs are bad, and if you really insist on not eating GMOs, non GMO products are always super fucking clear and obnoxious about making you know you are such so even if you make the factually incorrect decision that you should avoid GMOs, this law isn't necessary, its addressing an issue that doesn't exist

This logic makes no sense. None of those labels are legally required (unless you include the sugar content on the nutrition label)

But good point in how the gluten free label has been marketed similarly misleadingly to the GMO free label, although unlike with GMOs there are actually a very small portion of the population for which gluten is harmful so there is at least a modicum of legitimacy behind that label (but the marketing behind it has convinced a whole fucking lot of people that gluten should be avoided in general)

Sort of. Vaccines have undeniable benefits with very low risk. Many GMOs do as well, but I worry about the effects of big corporations (or whomever) that are not beneficial to consumers but to their bottom line. So I guess in that sense being anti-GMO is more like being anti-pharmaceuticals. The vast majority of it is quite beneficial, but there's room for fuckery.

This is obviously bullshit. The US population doesn't need GMOs to survive, obviously, but there is no doubt that the ability to grow more food on less land is good for the environment. America grows more food than ever on less farmland than has been used in over 100 years. Returning this farmland to nature is reward enough

Again, provide actual facts and examples showing that the food supply of 3rd world countries depends on GMO food crops (= glyphosate resistant GMOs, for the majority).

You and other ignorantly pro-GMO people in this thread merely speak in vague platitudes. "GMOs save lives" yet you can't say which specific GMOs save lives and how their adoption has led to marked increase in productivity in such countries.

You think GMO crops means we are planting crops that are invincible and 10,000% more productive. I suggest you actually look into what commercialized GMO crops are in use. And what the end use of such crops are (e.g.: Bt-transgenic cotton, glyphosate resistant corn and soy largely used for biofuel etc.).

The fact is, you know about as much as the equally ignorant anti-GMO side. You both speak as vague as possible on your position, basing your argument more on emotion or hypothetical rationale that doesn't actually reflect what is currently happening in the fields today.

I hunt and when I buy meat at the grocery store, why would I choose to buy meat from animals treated with non-therapeutic antibiotics and hormones? Why would I want to eat as much hydrogenated vegetable fats as possible? Why would I prefer animals that are fed soy and corn byproducts? Ever wonder why the studies showing the benefits of butter are rarely reproducible in N. America vs. Europe? Grass-fed butter (and meat) contain higher contents of conjugated linoleic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and antioxidants like superoxide dismutase and glutathione.

But no, food is food and it's all about calories.
>>
>>10144385
>Returning this farmland to nature is reward enough
It would be if this is happening. It isn't. More grassland and forests are being converted to farmland than vice versa. What, you think that as productivity increases and corn/soy prices rise people are going to leave fields to fallow?

Provide numbers showing this absurd notion, I'll provide one:

>Here, we use land cover data from the National Agricultural Statistics Service Cropland Data Layer to assess grassland conversion from 2006 to 2011 in the Western Corn Belt (WCB): five states including North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Iowa. Our analysis identifies areas with elevated rates of grass-to-corn/soy conversion (1.0–5.4% annually). Across the WCB, we found a net decline in grass-dominated land cover totaling nearly 530,000 ha. With respect to agronomic attributes of lands undergoing grassland conversion, corn/soy production is expanding onto marginal lands characterized by high erosion risk and vulnerability to drought. Grassland conversion is also concentrated in close proximity to wetlands, posing a threat to waterfowl breeding in the Prairie Pothole Region. Longer-term land cover trends from North Dakota and Iowa indicate that recent grassland conversion represents a persistent shift in land use rather than short-term variability in crop rotation patterns. Our results show that the WCB is rapidly moving down a pathway of increased corn and soybean cultivation. As a result, the window of opportunity for realizing the benefits of a biofuel industry based on perennial bioenergy crops, rather than corn ethanol and soy biodiesel, may be closing in the WCB.

Atoms are the building blocks of everything in the universe and the human body consists of around a billion billion billion atoms for every ten kilograms of body weight. That's a number with twenty seven zeros behind it. I'm about 60 kg so I have around:
6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
...atoms in my body. That's a pretty big number because that's a lot of atoms.
