Farmer's use of genetically modified soybeans grows into Supreme Court case

There are 17 comments on the The Washington Post story from Feb 9, 2013, titled Farmer's use of genetically modified soybeans grows into Supreme Court case. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

Farmer Hugh Bowman hardly looks the part of a revolutionary who stands in the way of promising new biotech discoveries and threatens Monsanto's pursuit of new products it says will "feed the world." "Hell's fire," said the 75-year-old self-described "eccentric old bachelor," who farms 300 acres of land passed down from his father.

For once, I concur.

The ONLY reason for GMO modified seeds and plants is so they can accept more pesticide, in this case roundup.

at this point there is not scientific evidence that GM foods cause any problems. (or as the global warming crowd would say, there is scientific consensus.)

Did you know that GMO plants such as soybean, corn, cottonseed, canola and sugar beets have had foreign genes spliced into their DNA? These genes come from species such as bacteria and viruses, which have never been in the human food supply before. They are inserted because they allow the plants to survive doses of weedkiller that would otherwise kill them.

Did you know that the American Academy of Environmental Medicine states, "Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GMO food," including infertility, immune problesm, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system? The ask physicians to advise their patients to avoid GMO food.

Did you know animals fed GMO products experience infertility, higher rates of cancer, atrophied livers, infant mortality, and sometimes death?

And lastly did you know that because of these factors GMO foods have been banned in Europe for over a decade already?

In 1992 the FDA claimed they had no evidence that GMO foods were substantially different from non-GMO counterparts and so did not require any testing before allowing them into our food supply. Could this have had anything to do with the fact that the FDA official in charge of creating this policy was Michael Taylor, the former attorney for Monsanto, the largest biotech company, and later their vice-president. Monsanto is one of the biggest producers of GMO seeds.

Just like there was no evidence smoking caused cancer or ddt was harmful to the environment, or asbestos caused disease......

Oh wait, there WAS evidence, but of course it was being covered up by those producing the products.

Gee, I wonder what Monsanto is covering up all in the name of profits?

Is Chris Dodd going to be given honorable mention for filibustering the bill (by Bush) that would have stopped the mortgage meltdown in it's tracks, thus allowing a maniac like Barack Benghazi to take control? Thus allowing American prosperity to die?

DDT is a probable carcinogen (causes cancer) and is linked to diabetes and thyroid problems as well.

There are other insecticides just as effective but less toxic to humans and the environment.
