Should We Be Worried About GMOs? – Glad You Asked S1


( music playing )Christophe:
This is the island of Maui.
We’re here because this place
has been at the center
of a fierce debate
about whether we should grow
and eat genetically
modified food.
And that question is only
getting more important.At the current rate,
we will have to grow more food
in the next 30 years
than we have in all
of human history.
Doing that without destroying
the environment that we live in will be one of the defining
challenges of our generation.And many experts argue
that to do that,
we’ll have to engineer
the genes of our food.
But the safety of
that technology has been
controversial for decades.
So, should we be worried
about genetically modified food?( music playing )– Good morning.
– Hey, how’s it going? – How is everybody today?
– Fantastic. Chocolate peanut butter.
Chocolate peanut butter. – Oh, my God.
– How is it? – It’s really good?
– I can’t tell if that
was good or bad. It’s Reese’s peanut butter
for breakfast. – In a Cheerio.
– I love it. Why are we here? – We are here in my home.
– “We are here in my home.” I have brought you here. I have brought you guys here
to talk about GMOs. I’m curious to hear how
you grew up thinking about them. ‘Cause for me, I was–
I was definitely taught that GMOs are a terrible thing. In my family,
it was just never something
that was talked about ever. I was taught that
the big business around GMOs is something to be,
like, hated. All these labels started
appearing, like this one, “Non-GMO project verified,”
which seems to signal to people that there’s something harmful
about GMOs. There’s one thing at this table
that does contain genetically modified organisms
and is labeled as such. – And I’m curious if y’all
can find it.
– Huh. – It’s not the coffee.
– This one says non-GMO. It’s the one that
y’all haven’t looked at yet. – The fruit. No.
– Mm-mm “Partially produced
with genetic engineering.”
It is the Cheerios. Alex: Oh, there it is.
It’s at the very
bottom of the box. Sneaky little– If you look through
the ingredients, you can see
whole grain oats, sugar, peanut butter,
dextrose, corn starch, and corn syrup, and corn that
was probably produced with
genetic engineering. In a way, it’s almost like
a status symbol for your foods if you’re able to identify
that all your foods have the positive label
of being GMO-free. Cleo:
I guess my question to you,
Christophe, is it a good label?
Like, is that something
that I should be looking for? Um… To understand how we got here, we have to talk about
the first GMO. This is the Flavr Savr tomato. Leading up to its launch, people called this
the super tomato. It became major news. The future is now,
at least in terms
of the American diet. Genetically altered tomatoes
are a step closer to your
supermarket tonight. The new tomatoes will soon be
on a store shelf near you. When it hit shelves, it became
the first commercial crop
that was genetically modified. It was designed to be less perishable
than regular tomatoes. What followed was a new
generation of bio-engineering
initiatives that promised to feed
the world, including things
like golden rice, a GMO enriched with beta keratin
to combat blindness and death from vitamin A deficiency. Researchers believe
they have found a way to add critical nutrients
to rice. Man:Vitamin A deficiency
is a pervasive and silent
killer
of malnourished children
in the third world.
But over the next few years,
public perception of GMOs went from gentle curiosity
like this… As long as it was–
it was healthy, you know? No– no health risks.
Yeah, I’d consider it. …to bitter divisiveness
like this. Hell no, GMO. Hell no, GMO. Other labs tried
to replicate that study
and found that it wasn’t true. – No, actually that is not true.
– Yes. ( speaking foreign language ) One side says that modifying
food is totally harmless and the other side says that
it’s a serious threat to us. They take viruses and bacteria
and insecticides and put them into the DNA. More often than not, they’re inserting viruses or bacteria into these plants. But that’s not exactly
how it works, so let’s clear things up. – Cleo, you free right now?
– Sure. All right. So genetic
engineering works by taking
a tiny piece of DNA from one organism
and putting it inside
of another organism. That tiny piece of DNA
is called a gene. It is a set of instructions
that tells the organism how to express a trait. You can kind of think of that
like taking a recipe from one cookbook
and putting it inside
of another one. So one set of instructions here
contain a really special trait, and it’s bookmarked. – Insect killer.
– Exactly. Grandma’s
insect killer recipe. This one page tells
that bacteria how to create this protein
that kills insects. Okay, so how does this gene get from the bacteria
to the corn? You can use kind of this
bacterium that naturally
goes into the other plant and, like, dumps the DNA off or you can use something
called a gene gun. The gene gun literally
shoots gold particles
that are covered in DNA… – Dope.
– …into cells of the corn. This corn plant
will then produce those same
insecticide proteins. And what that means
is that farmers now
would not have to spray those corn plants
with insecticide. So it’s not as though GMOs are using a small part
of a bacteria and putting it into corn
or something else. It’s more like they’re taking
a small instruction that a bacteria has and allowing corn
to also have that instruction. – Is that right?
– Exactly. So what do we know
about how safe it is – to eat something like this?
– Mm, let me show you. In the past 20 years that
we’ve been eating these crops, there have been no negative
health impacts on consumers. – That’s great.
– Yeah. I learned all of this
from Pamela Ronald. She is a geneticist
at UC Davis. We’ve been genetically
engineering many different types of plants and genetically engineering
medicines for over 40 years, and there hasn’t been
a single instance of harm to human health
or the environment. Christophe:
We know that from
thousands of studies,
but they’re probably best
summarized in this one from the National Academies
of Sciences, Engineering,
and Medicine. So this is like a meta study
of thousands of reports. Can I get a highlighter?
Great. Cleo:
There’s some evidence that GE
insect-resistant crops have had benefits
to human health by reducing
insecticide poisoning. The research,
blah, blah, blah, blah, of GE foods
reveals no differences that would implicate
a higher risk to human health from eating GE foods than from eating
their non-GE counterparts. – That’s the money line.
– That’s it. This seems so certain, but it– it also seems like
this is such a big controversy. It is.
So the 2015 Pew Research poll found the majority of Americans believe that it’s not safe to eat genetically
modified food, but almost 90% of scientists
say that they’re safe. And this gap is the biggest of any politicized
scientific issue. So that means bigger
than climate change,
bigger than vaccines. It makes me feel like
there must be some other issue with GMO products
or GMO companies that people
are really struggling with. – That’s what I want
to figure out, yeah.
– Like, it can’t be this. So the thing is,
as much as people might worry about GMO fruits
and vegetables, you’re not really likely
to find them in produce. They’re in cheap processed foods
made from GMO corn and soy. And the vast majority
of GMO crops don’t actually
even wind up in food. You know, for the most part,they are turned into biofuels
or into feed.
In the U.S.,
where over 90% of corn
is genetically modified,
just 10% is turned into things
that people actually consume.
So all that genetic engineering
allowed us to do was to grow crops like that on a bigger scale
than ever before. Could it have more to do
with how the business of GMOs is actually implemented? There’s one place that I think can help us answer
that question, and it’s in the middle
of the Pacific Ocean.( music playing )Hawaii is ground zerofor developing new
genetically engineered crops.
In the 1990s, the entire
papaya industry in Hawaii was basically
on the verge of collapse. Plants started to be infected
by papaya ringspot virus. This problem persisted
for decades, and then came something
called the rainbow papaya. This was a transgenic variety that was designed
to resist the virus.Until 2017,
this was the only GMO fruit
that was sold in the U.S.This fruit was proof
that genetic engineering could really benefit
both consumers and farmers.But it also kicked off
a long debate about what
genetic engineering
means for the state
of Hawaii.
It’s hosted more open air
experimental field tests
than any other state
in the country.
And the U.S. grows more GMOsthan any other country
in the world.
And all of these companies
are here because
Hawaii’s tropical climate allows for three to four
plantings of seeds per year, as opposed to just one on most parts
of the mainland U.S. It kind of creates this
ultimate outside laboratory for seed companies.We’re gonna go visit
one of these test fields
that’s owned by Bayer with
members of the SHAKA movement.
So tell me what SHAKA is. The SHAKA movement is the Sustainable
Hawaiian Agriculture for the Keiki and the ‘Aina. Okay, we’re here in Kihei,and these are
the Hale Piilani homes,
and they are next tothe Monsanto test field
here in Kihei.
Now these people are right
on top of the problem. What they’re doing
in the test fieldis they’re trying to see
how much herbicide
the plant
and the seed can take.
We know tests–
the pesticide drifts,
especially with this wind,and it would bring it
right into these homes,straight into these homes.This was one of the reasons
for the moratorium
was the proximity
of these test fields
to these homes
we’re standing next to.
In 2014, Maui County
passed a moratorium on the research and development
and production of GMOs. Man: Hawaii is the center
of a fight between the companies
who make crop seeds here and residents who say
they are being poisoned. Hawaii’s Maui County passed
one of the strongest anti-GMO measures ever. A battle over the Maui County
GMO moratorium is headed to court. Eventually, that moratorium was overruled
in a federal court. We were just asking
to slow down,
take a breath, stop, and let’s see what’s going on
in terms of experimentation with these open fields
putting all these people
in danger, right? It was easy for the industry
to turn around and go,
“Oh, you’re anti-GMO.” Are you anti-science
when you’re being
openly tested on? And the fact
that they’re going, “We’re experimenting
with this corn
and we’re gonna see how much pesticide
it can handle before it dies.” Look where you’re doing it. You’re doing it
where people live. Okay, let me clarify
what they’re talking about. One of the most popular kinds
of genetically engineered traits is something called
herbicide tolerance. By giving a plant a gene
that makes it resistant to one specific kind
of chemical,farmers can spray herbicide
on their plants to kill weeds
without having to worry
about harming their crops.
So even though
the other most common
kind of genetically
engineered trait successfully reduced
the need for insecticide, this particular GMO trait actually encourages the use
of more herbicides.Since 1996,
when the biotech company
Monsanto
first introduced crops
tolerant to glyphosate,
that’s the active ingredient
in the herbicide Roundup,
the use of that chemical
has skyrocketed.
Now, glyphosate has
traditionally been considered a relatively safe herbicide,
but in 2015, the World Health Organization
concluded that it likely causes cancer
to humans who are exposed to it.Now there are thousands
of lawsuits against Bayer,
which acquired Monsanto,for failing to warn consumers
of those risks.
We reached out to Bayer
for comment, but at this time,
they haven’t provided
a statement.( music playing )I can count three chickens
from where I stand. But there are more
everywhere. Oop! Lorrin:
My name is Lorrin Pang.
I was born and raised
in Hawaii.
I got involved in this issue
of GM growing.
Walk me through
what the concerns
that people here have – about those kinds of crops
in particular.
– Yeah. The Maui community
was quite upset about
corporate agriculture in Hawaii and on Maui. Our concern
are the pesticides, okay? You’re using
too many pesticides.When the stuff you put
is blowing on the wind,
and you haven’t told
anybody downwind
who got drifted
about informed consent,
and they never got
to respond,
that’s unethical. This is the framework
of human experimentation. I will give them
the benefit of the doubt that they want
to feed the world
and use less pesticides. I will give them that. That does seem to be
something that we hear a lot – on this topic is this idea…
– What? Feed the world? …that GMOs are a necessary
technology to feed the world. Corporations and scientists
have shown that’s the goals. “What do you want?”
“Feed the world.” I’ll give that to you.
Maybe we’re trying
to feed the world. But the process
that we get there seems to trample on
certain people’s rights.( music playing )We’re about to go talk
to Dr. Harold Keyser. He’s going to explain to us what
genetically engineered crops look like here in Hawaii. And we’re climbing up a hill.( music playing )That’s Harold.
He found a chameleon. – ( indistinct chatter )
– ( squeals ) – They have a very long tongue.
– ( gasps ) Oh, my God. Oh, my God. ( squeals )
It’s on the camera. It’s so hard to separate
the technology from
its context of big AG. – Mm-hmm.
– Do you feel like that is going to make this argument
endure for a long time? Like, when are we going
to stop talking about this? Genetic engineering
is safe as any other form
of plant breeding. Regulation is so expensive, you know, to get it through all the stages at EPA and Food and Drug
Administration, to get a new product out. And, I mean,
I think that’s also part of why the focus has been
on the major crops. Because they spent all this
money and then that’s where
they’re gonna, you know, they’re gonna go after
the big payoffs first. Corn, soybean,
alfalfa, cotton, things that are on,
you know, big acreages. You know,
there’s been consolidation. And that basically crowds out
everyone except for the large
ones and incentivizes– Oh, yeah.
Somebody with the really deep–
probably deep pockets. Christophe:
So how did these companies
become so powerful?
Well, at the same time
that GMO technology
was taking off, the seed industry was also
undergoing major changes. Let me show you how. Each of these seeds
represents an individual
seed company back in 1996. By 2018, all of these
were fully or partially owned
by Monsanto,which made it the biggest
seed company in the world.
The pharmaceutical company
Bayer bought Monsanto
for $63 billion. But it’s not just Bayer.
Dow and DuPont merged
to become Corteva, and ChemChina
acquired Syngenta. Today these four companies control over 60%
of the world’s seed sales. Those companies patent
the genetics of their seeds, which means that farmers
can’t harvest their own seeds. They have to buy them
every year. And because these seeds work
hand in hand with the chemicals produced by the same companies, you can’t really have one
without the other. So for some, adopting GMOs means
buying into a system where, for the first time
in the history of agriculture, farmers are not
fully controlling and owning their seeds.But even though there’s
immense pressure to do so,
not every farmer
is buying into that system.
( dog barking ) – ( indistinct chatter )
– Hey, how’s it going? ( muttering ) – How’s it going?
Nice to see you.
– All right. How you doing? This is, like,
in full operation. We just put this extension in. You can see this is where
the door used to be. We took that shade house down,
poured the slab, and then did all this. The system comes on. – And do you hear that sounds?
– Uh-huh. That’s the sound of money.We produce about five to 600
pounds of greens a week
and we do it on
2,500 square feet
on a 9,000 square-foot lot.So you could say I’m probablyone of the largest smallest
farmers here in Hawaii.
This conversation about
genetic engineering in food has gotten so much attention
as kind of a focal point for how this conversation
is happening all
across the world. Yeah, because
the corporate takeover
of agriculture, so to speak, has been consolidation.
I mean, it’s happening today. Has been a big issue.
The farmers are going back
to these companies going, “Hey, man, we got bugs
attacking our plants.” “Well, here.”
And they start giving them petrochemical pesticides
and herbicides. And it didn’t take long
before that just spiraled
out of control. Well, the farmers
are just trying to find ways
to make ends meet. That created–
that whole attack on the plant
created a dysfunction, and that’s when
genetic engineering came in. So I feel it was a dysfunction
on top of a dysfunction, which creates
dysfunction squared. Am I against GMO? Um, I just don’t support it. You know, as a farmer,
I want to grow food for people without using
that kind of technology. And, um,
so that’s my main interest.Little did I realize that
I could actually make a living
on a postage stamp
with agriculture. This is where we grow
what I call the chocolate cake. – You can take it–
– It went straight through. This is like black gold. We’re here in
paradise on Earth.
We can grow a lot of food. – Here I am on Maui.
I mean, what more can I ask?
– Here we are. – Yeah. Seriously.
– Yeah. The idea of genetically
modified food is so often sold to us
based off of future promises–crops that can resist
a changing climate,
or with better yield,or with improved nutrients
to feed the world. More efficient water use, bigger root systems,
nutrient uptake. There’s definitely potential. Christophe:
But GMOs today don’t
live up to that potential.
Right now, most aren’t even
turned into food.
The real reason
to worry about GMOs
isn’t that
they’re unsafe to eat.
It’s how they’re being
used today.
Barbara:
It’s the pesticides and
the herbicides we worry about.
This is in no way
farming to feed people. Christophe:And right now
the agricultural practices
that some GMOs encourage
have demonized a technology that objectively could help
a lot of people.That’s part of why in 2013,anti-GMO activists
in the Philippines
destroyed a test field
for golden rice,
setting public sector research
back by months. Vincent:
It’s collapsing under
its own weight.
The technology
is not producing
the promise that it said
it’s going to feed the world
and all that stuff. Christophe:
The biggest tragedy of all
would be if the GMOs
that could help people the most
fail because of concerns that don’t have anything to do
with the technology itself. That’s what
we should be worried about
when we worry about GMOs. Thank you so much for watching. For more episodes

  • There aren’t many conversations about food quite as polarized as the ones we have about genetically engineering crops. We chose to take a look at the gap between what GMOs promised to do and what most of them are designed to do — but there’s so much more that we weren’t able to fit into this episode. If you want to learn more, I’d really recommend checking out this compilation of smart answers to some of the most common questions about GMOs:

    That’s it for this season of Glad You Asked — thank you so much for watching!

  • without gmo I((and farmer(industrial)(large scale)) will bankrupt

  • Thanks so much for shedding light on this important topic. It is important to note that GMOs are not responsible for farmers inability to replant seed, but rather breeding by hybridization which renders the next generation of seed inconsistent and unusable in the industrial ag setting.

  • The equation is do they real care about third world world countries or another way of experimenting in those people…..

  • can it make sick (food poisoning)

  • The whole GMO debate, vaccine debate… even climate change can be summarized by one simple concept. People get super uncomfortable when other people try to play the role of God. infact fear is a more suited word. At that point, rationality jumps out the window

  • feels like vox is missing the wrong about maui stuff, the residents seem to be neutral to GMO, just not having pesticides being sprayed in large amounts in the area they live in and are anti bayer due to their irresponsible practices and endangering the public

  • No. There. Saved you 20 min.

  • Like any tool, it can be used for good or evil. GMOs are definitely worth it

  • Could have used less theatrics.

  • I'm impressed this wasn't completely blindly pro GMO. I have no problem genetically modifying people, let alone plants. That's not the issue. The issue is most of these GMO crops require tons more herbicides and pesticides. Like the ones that killed the bees….

  • GMOs are killing diversity of our food.

  • Humans would soon be genetically modified cos everything has to be perfect & efficient

  • So the real problem is anti-competitive consolidation that shifts the balance of power away from labor and towards capital? Gee… why does that sound so familiar…

  • Fun fact

    The orange carrots are gmo’ed

    The purple and yellow ones are normal ones

    (How fun was that?)

  • Genetically engineering food is cool.
    Genetically engineering people is immoral.
    Right….

  • wow that's nasty artificial flavors are just bad can't believe we grew up to this

  • This is not what a documentary looks like

  • Did I ask this question? Glad you asked.

  • Or we could just stop eating meat and have a ton of extra food with much less damage to the environment

  • I consider anti gmo people similar to anti vax people. Both groups cost lives. But yeah corperations can really botch stuff.

  • Glad you anwsered

  • No GMO's should be embraced worldwide

  • ArianaGautam

  • look, it has been shown, time and time again, that humans cannot "improve" nature thru force without negative consequences.
    you say no ill health effects, but i say look at the rise in unexplained neurological issues in people of all ages.
    if the bacteria is in the corn, it is in whatever eats the corn, and whatever eats that, and so on.
    selective breeding would be a more natural way to alter plants but, hey, who has patience for doing things the safe, proper way?

  • Even if there are no negative health effects, the practices of patenting seeds and forcing farmers to buy them year after year, while suing other people farmers who have seeds blown onto their fields by the wind, are disgustingly unethical.

    Monsanto lies about Agent Orange, DDT, bovine growth hormone and glyphosate. But this time, THIS TIME they are telling the truth.

    This filth makes me sick.

  • It is human's greed.
    The want for more…

  • How about genetically modified huamans?

  • i thought i heard that this gmo rice was made not to have viable seeds. those poor farmers had to buy seeds again and again did anyone hear the same?

  • Need one on dairy and meat!

  • My answer is not that much
    GMO is very important

  • I always want to understand what the heck is GMO and MSG, Gultin Free, and organics. I just eat whatever they have at the store that looks good but now am thinking about growing my own foods naturally but now…. It's just a seed and I have to buy chicken for normal eggs and a cow to make sure I get better milk to eat healthier? Scientist get it together and start making safer food and safer environment.

  • If it's modified to tolerate pesticides then its not fit for human consumption. Is not rocket science.

  • A very serious fact in the US is that anti-intellectualism has made a great noise like anti-vaccine campaign. So, no wonder why the majority of Americans think GMOs are unsafe.

  • I'm 100% pro GMO food, but not pro large corporations.

  • The Czech experimental botanist Mr. Friml says that obstructing the development of GMO is a crime.
    The main problem is scientists don´t know explain GMOs to the people properly. They just research in their labs, take a piece of DNA (don't use chemicals) and transfer it to the crop. But giant corporations like Monsanto have great PR teams that do everything they can to that Monsanto not lose his profits.

  • In my family were organic, and Non GMO

  • GMO's arent a problem for most people therea problem for farmers

  • Except if you sick or have allergies or stomach issues the top things you told not to touch is gmo and most likely if your sick if anything internally or long term you likely get sick off of corn and wheat normally those things are the make you sick easily. So maybe while if you 100 percent healthy you might not have a issue with a upset stomach but think what it does long term over years to your body. To the land your food is tested on. To you.

  • It’s real easy… Who’s making the money…? They’re the ones LYING!!!

  • GMO is poison! Man can't play God's role so stop trying you are killing so many innocent people!

  • Keep tryna play GOD. You body regenerates and make new cells and if you eating GMOs you are alternative you genetic code.

  • Cnqwye
    Ñ…

  • These corporations must be owned by the government

  • Fact check: actually genetically modified foods (especially peanuts) have had an effect on consumers. We commonly know peanut allergies. Well that is a result of genetically modified food. People weren’t that allergic to peanuts until we started to genetically modify them. The percentage of Americans whom are allergic to peanuts has increased of the years. I learned that is my science class

    I however, stand on the side that supports GMO’s. I don’t mind them.

  • Hello my friend

  • Monsanto Protection Act

  • They got me in the first half, not gonna lie!

  • It's sad that normal VOX videos are way better than this "premium" stuff.

  • For some cases, there are people who allergic to GMO products. Me, personally, I'm allergic to certain GMO products. I can not put any GMO products on my skin

  • So sorry to see healthy young bodies eating Cheerios or anything made from WHEAT or other grains. How many generations to come will keep buying into obesity, and triggering their own DNA's propensity for other diseases? Why so few people care about their villi?

  • I'm going to be honest the fact that now foods are made without GMOs and other words non-GMO Foods vitamins and overall everything else I think it's very beneficial

  • Well of course you have to insert bacteria into organisms using it as a vector but no viruses

  • This speaks very little to the ethics of GMOs. And the greater question around how we use technology and the unintended consequences it can bring. All because something is possible doesn't mean we should do it.

    They imply in this video that to be anti gmo is to be anti-science and then a lacking in awareness and intelligence.

    I think this is an unfair association for those who do not believe GMOs are the best solution to some of the problems it promises to solve.

    This quote by Wendell berry when asked about GMOs:

    “The inevitable aim of industrial agri-investors is the big universal solution. They want a big product that can be marketed everywhere. And the kind of agriculture we’re talking about that leads to food security and land conservation is locally adapted agriculture. And they can’t do that. Industrial agriculture plants cornfields in Arizona; locally adapted agriculture says, what can we fit in this place that will not destroy it? Or what can nature help us to do here? That’s the critical issue.”

  • I didn’t ask

  • As a non expert in GMO, I cannot say with certainty that it is either good or bad.
    BUT, I would like to point out that despite the abundance of food, there are people going hungry now. This is not a matter of producing more food. It is a matter of politics and economy.

  • this video needs to have a "the short answer is no" right in the beginning instead of playing around it

  • I don't mind plant to plant DNA – GMO but I am concern about mixing diff species DNA – GMO foods. Especially those don't produce seeds that CAN grow our don't even produce any seeds. It's freaking scary how these food will effect human body in a long term.

  • COME ON PEOPLE HAVE SOME COMON SENSE…. THE CELLS CAN NOT SURVIVE WITH THIS GMO THING…. THATS WHY OLD PEOPLE LEAVE LONGER SOME TO 100 YEARS… So WITH GMO is not FROM GOD BUT FROM HUMAN… AND SOON YOU WILL GET CANCER AND OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS… YOU DONT GET IT RIGHT AWAY… IT TAKES TIME…THAT CANCER IN YOU…IAM TEELING IF GOD MAKES IT JUST LEAVE IT DONT MAKE ANY CHANGES AND JUST EAT IT..BUT IF IS MAN MADE….THAN YOU WILL NOT LEAVE LINGER.., SIMPLE…..

  • HE IS NOT GONNA CLARFY NOTHING THIS DUDE GETS PAID BY HOSPITAL SO HE CAN GET MORE PEOPLE SEEK AND SEND THEM TO HOSPITAL

  • No, you should worry about guns

  • Now, as a Canadian farmer, and eating, producing, and having parents working on GMO products, I have never had any health problems in my entire life. I also keep my seed every year, along with the area farmers. Now I can understand the problem of using many tonnes of herbicides, but with everyone around the countryside I know has used roundup (Yearly for the crops) and none of them have developed any sorts of cancers. But I do agree with the bigger picture of needing to create a stronger science and faith in these technologies which could save the world.

  • is fantastic I love

  • I want to ask you. How human can recycle plastic in a good way?

  • The Cornell Alliance for Science advisory board includes academics who assist the agrichemical industry with their PR efforts.

    Pamela Ronald: A geneticist at UC Davis, Ronald is a prominent champion of genetically engineered foods. She served on the boards of directors of two Monsanto partner groups, Biofortified (which Ronald co-founded) and the Science Literacy Project, the parent organization of the industry front group Genetic Literacy Project. Ronald has also solicited industry payments for speaking engagements; see $10,000 invoice to Bayer and $3,000 invoice to Monsanto.

  • the answer is no. sorry anti-vaxxers and raw water drinkers.

  • I never did

  • All foods are gmo bc the gmo companies own the seeds!

  • We have a mitochondrion due to natural gmo!

  • Gmo foods gives you acid reflex

  • Vox is a satanic company shrouded in occultic ideology, repent and believe in The Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be Saved. He is the Only way to Heaven
