What is GMO?
Hi. Not sure how many of you are into the GMO debate but I thought I`d pass this link on. Anyone know if internet petitions are even considered valid?

What is GMO?
Genetically Modified Organism: Genetically modified organism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.
GMO"s are also called Frankenfood. The only sure way to eat GMO free is certified organic. Even produce is affected.
I think genetically modifying food modifies Nature's built-in "survival of the fittest" mechanism. This ensures that the genetically modified variety will destroy all other "natures" varieties and will establish a monoculture. If you look at history, this happened a couple of times and caused large famines. Ultimately, this puts all farmers (and consumers too) at a disadvantage because the crop is now owned by corps like Monsanto. This means they now have a form of monopoly and they will do anything to maximize profits. For an example, Monsanto put a gene that causes crop seeds to kill itself after a harvest and also price fixing.

Just thought I'd add that. And I suppose my opinion is that the notion is scary. Testing is not anywhere near comprehensive enough.

The organic produce you buy in the supermarket already contains non-organic residues like pesticides. Organic produce is stored in the same containers or within the vicinity of pesticide loaded produce which gives a chance of cross contamination. This is proved from the statistics at whatsonmyfood.org where they found pesticide residues on organic produce. This is why you should be buying from certified farmers market and CSA.
Due to cross-contamination, you can bet that "organic" pasture areas will have GMO alfalfa growing in it and the steers will eat it and still be labeled organic. This is because testing whether the pasture area is GMO is expensive and organic products would already be on the market that are actually non-organic, it will be a mess.
