The main problem here, and it is confirmed by most comments you got, is that all reactions are driven by emotions, not logics or science.

And for the record, I personally eat local. Not organic, GMO, or whatever, but local from my local market. Less gas emissions to bring the food to my plate and this promotes the local economy ;)

I did expect that to happen as I deliberately tagged my post with #conspiracy and #gmo.
Though, I'm rather sad that they apparently didn't even spend time to read the article and only dropped one comment without taking a look at the sources or answering to my questions afterwards.

I was hoping for a more furious debate rather than just a populist phrase with nothing more following or behind it.

That's the best way to go, indeed! :)

well, the active community on Steem is what it is, at least at the moment ^^

I hope Monsanto/Bayer burns to the ground!!!

·

Why do you think that?

I brought sources and evidence.
Now I'm waiting. It's your turn to refute what I said.

Not with a shabby slogan. But proof.

·

I agree 100% my brother.
Kill Babylon!

·
·

Let us disregard all evidence and just hate. Sure.
Care to give any reasons with according proof as to why they should "burn to the ground"?

I listed several dozens of sources and evidences as to why GMOs are not evil.

Great piece, predictable conclusion. The same conclusion I got when I wrote my article on GMO and Monsanto a few months ago.
Science is science, you can only have one conclusion by analyzing the data.

Cheers!

Thank you much for that addition! :)

It was not shameless promotion it was to support your article :P
You are welcome!

Of course, I never considered this self-promotion. Again, it's valuable input. :)

Das schätze ich sehr. <3

At last, a piece of activist antics scientists can get behind! I read recently that without GMOs it's goodbye bananas. But I like bananas!

Entertaining and informative article.

·

Having those "Activist Antics" can come in quite handy. ;D

Glad you liked it. :)

Here's my take on GMO:

We are good at selecting for the traits that we want in crops, etc. As for other unintended gene products, well, that's another story. It probably wont show its effects until much later.

Having worked in both clinical and research settings, I can tell you that a healthy dose of skepticism never hurt. Uninformed fear, however, is an utter nuisance.

·

It probably wont show its effects until much later.

It seems rather unlikely, though.
Especially regarding that much more genes change in artificial selection, so - from a gene standpoint of view - I would assume that the more genes change, the bigger the risk by that logic. ;)

I can tell you that a healthy dose of skepticism never hurt. Uninformed fear, however, is an utter nuisance.

Though, I totally agree with you here.

It's not that it's unlikely. It's that we don't know and probably will never live long enough to see the effects as the selected genes interact and evolve with the original species.

Eukaryotic gene interactions are a lot more complex than what can be observed in prokaryotes. Take humans, for example, we have so many products from ~20K genes. It's not as simple as transcribe a segment, translate it, and boom product.

Haver another happy year, !BEER

It should be pretty easy to overstand,
even for
"educated fools from uneducated schools":
Keep your hands off creation!
None of your business.
A natural selection,transformation of
Nature is not comparable to
"i think this would work better,faster more
profitable..." from
"educated fools from uneducated schools"
Do me a favor, Dude:
Be the human experiment:
Just eat GMO food from today on,
and let's see how you looking
and doing in a year or so...;)

Keep your hands off creation!
None of your business.

Why?


Would you rather let farmers go bankrupt in Bangladesh because their eggplants are being killed by a (naturally occuring) virus? Or the farmers in Hawaii with their Papayas?

Would you rather have children to suffer from Vitamin A deficiency and let them go blind?

You must be a horrible person.

Your arguments FOR GMO's are weak. Population and Deficiencies? Those are human problems. We are the victims of our own successful innovations and greed.
GMO's go against the evolutionary development of the ecosystem and food chain.
If GMO's were SO great, why aren't the 'RICH PEOPLE' eating it? They all eat Organic food!.... One example is Prince Charles.
The second thing aboud GMO's I am not convinced about is the longevity of the studies into them, the secrecy behind the results of testing and the aparent 'independently sponsored testers'.
Great article, but if you like GMO's so much. . . . . . . You can 'crack on', but for me, it's as much ORGANIC food as possible.

Good Luck

Those are human problems. We are the victims of our own successful innovations and greed.

You are a human. I assume.
Okay, let the poor children suffer and go blind because Vitamin A rich food can't be grown in the Chinese/Indian mountain regions. It's just a "human" "problem". ;)

GMO's go against the evolutionary development of the ecosystem and food chain.

So, where's the problem? Does it hurt to have Golden Rice?

If GMO's were SO great, why aren't the 'RICH PEOPLE' eating it? They all eat Organic food!.... One example is Prince Charles.

I eat GMOs regularly because I know that they're not dangerous.
Just because you're "rich" doesn't mean your educated. Heck, they could just do it for a publicity stunt.
Like donating to charity to get stuff tax-refunded.

the secrecy behind the results of testing and the aparent 'independently sponsored testers'.

Well, the "tests" aren't secret. The studies are being published and to be worth something they have to be open about anything they do. Method, Samples, Sample Size, Tools used, et cetera.
And whether or not you receive money does not automatically conclude you bring the right/wrong answers.

You can 'crack on', but for me, it's as much ORGANIC food as possible.

If I might add: Organic is not as healthy or special as you might think it is.

Well.... It's your choice. I would like to eat as Organically as possible and as nature intended.
Unfortunately our Governments, have a habit of telling us, years down the line, that they were wrong.

Good Luck.
