Thanks for the article. I just logged onto E-Trade and bought 2500 shares of Monsanto thanks to your enlightening article.

was this a book report? I have seen mindless filler pass for journalism, but this was a C- at best
You are passing on a point of view without any real critical thought put into the review.
Are you a report
Scarry stuff when youmg minds no longer think for themselves, and rether parrot what they hear and report it as news, or movies critizism or what ever you choose to call that piece of sloppy work

A film review in the opinion section. Is this what writing in the Paradise Post has come to? You watch a documentary and write a column based on the documentary. And we all know that all documentaries are completely factual.

The fact that you were able to publish this piece is simply baffling to me. The very first takeaway that you list,
"U.S. law prohibits food companies from disclosing whether their products contain genetically modified crops." is patently false.
In fact, the FDA gives some guidance on how firms might want to label foods that are GMO free:
"We do not use ingredients that were produced using biotechnology;"
"This oil is made from soybeans that were not genetically engineered;" or *
"Our tomato growers do not plant seeds developed using biotechnology."
This kind of blind acceptance of scare tactic reporting is exactly what makes it impossible to have a reasonable conversation about GMO. I agree that there are legitimate concerns regarding the widespread production and consumption of these products, but lets stick to the facts.

I always suspected the environmental lobby got their marching orders from Hollywood - and this confirms my suspicions.
