    Where European scientists are against gm.  Maybe you can back up this claim?

    •  He's probably referring to the Seralini study (2+ / 0-)

      Which has been thoroughly debunked.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

        I am aware of the Seralini study and I do not consider it clean science. It needs to be independent and Seralini is opposed to GMOs.
        That said, one of the criticisms of this study is that the rats they used were predisposed to tumors. I would say two things on this point:
        1. Some humans are also predisposed to tumors.
        2. They are the same breed of rats Monsanto used in their studies on animals. Seralini just used them for lifetime instead of a short two week study.

      •  Debunked my ass. All Seralini did was to take (0+ / 0-)

        the same criteria Monsanto had used and pushed it to the lifetime of the rats.

        If the criteria were flawed, it was because Monsanto chose them and the original study cut off point. They probably already know what happens when the study goes longer and are hiding the fact.

        GMO products, and glyphosate specifically are asbestos/tobacco type class action law suits waiting to happen.

        Watch for it. It's just a matter of time, and unfortunately human suffering.

        The science around human health (as opposed to the science of GE) will catch up to Monsanto.

        So no one here is anti science, just anti dangerous, careless and unregulated science.

        Physics is bulls**t. Don't let them fool you. Fire IS magic.

    •  Europe (0+ / 0-)

      They appear to have some rigorous standards on which they base their policy.
