    Can you restate the fact that you believe has only one explanation?



    Nope. It's only a science if you can test competing hypotheses against each other. Otherwise, it's just speculation or...

    When you don't think critically and analytically about the results, you're likely to make mistakes. That's why it's important to follow up "the main question" with additional questions, such as "how...

    If you or anyone else doesn't want to eat GMO foods, that's fine. You already have the option to choose products with a label that reads non-GMO. Some companies willingly put up with the increased...

    TQP already did a good job answering your question, but I'd like to throw in a few extra thoughts.

    Haha, I know.

    I think my post came off like I was accusing you of being very pro-IP all the time, but I didn't mean it that way. I was just throwing out a random thought on the economics of IP...

    That's what's so tricky about intellectual property (at least from an economic standpoint). Some levels of it encourage innovation, while other levels hurt innovation. And it's tough to know at what...

    Finding facts and then constructing theories that explain them is a good approach. But it only takes us so far.

    Because some companies cater to people who care about non-GMO. So it's good business for them. It's not good business for every other company and their consumers. Which is part of the reason they...

    Some non-GMO foods are labeled.

    So maybe what you're really asking is: Why isn't there a mandate to label all GMO foods. A few potential answers were provided above:

    If a rat switched from eating 100% pork to 100% beef their PUFA intake would go from approximately 1.2% to 0.5%. Let's assume the PUFAs in each are completely made up of linoleate (which they're...
