Can you spot the difference? …

ANSWER: The corn on the left has been modified by scientists to contain a DNA sequence from a bacteria. This DNA produces a pesticide toxin. You can’t wash this pesticide off, it’s produced by every cell, and you won’t be able to spot the difference in the supermarket either.

TAKE 3 EASY STEPS to protect your family’s health and help get GMOs out of our food supply. Thank you!

1. Get the Facts. 2. Avoid GMOs. 3. Create Awareness.

“Any politician or scientist who tells you these products are safe is either very stupid or lying. The hazards of these foods are uncertain. In view of our enormous ignorance, the premature application of biotechnology is downright dangerous.”

  1. In the store, we only buy certified organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. We buy from local natural and organic farmers, grow our own. Yet we live in the middle of farm country, gmo crops abound. Thank goodness for the forest, but wondering how long they can last with the constant roundup / glyphosate apps from planes. Time for the transition back to natural across the world.

  2. GMO labels Should be provided cause the GMO crops are never the less when compared with the original crops inorder to spot the difference GMO labels shoul be provided(E…..H…..)

  3. All living things are composed of variant DNA molecules. These molecules have changed over the years and will continue to change. If the DNA of corn is changed so that it contains the DNA of a bacteria (NOT THE BACTERIA ITSELF) how is that different from replacing a human heart valve with the heart valve from a pig? I do not believe that DNA in itself will hurt anyone since we all have it and the food we eat does NOT change our DNA. Neither does a heart valve from a pig.

    • Organ transplants are not the same as genetic engineering. One of the big issues I have with genetic engineering is the lack of ethical framework. Do we really want goats engineered to produce spider web protein in their milk? Do we really want cows with human genes so their milk is more like human milk? Should these questions be left to companies who stand to profit?

      What kind of a world do we want? This is the thin end of the wedge… pretty soon we could have a world full of uncontrolled mutants whose effect on the environment is unknown and can’t be predicted. We have kids making new organisms in their garages with gene parts ordered off the internet.

      This is an experiment going on with no control, and no ethical framework. A disaster is a probability. If modified soil bacteria were to get out of the lab for example, it could potentially kill all plant life. This is what nearly happened once. I think we need to be very careful about playing God, and I think that power should certainly not be in the hands on companies who are only interested in profit.
