The March 30 pro-genetically modified organisms letter should not have even been printed.
Calling for choice in the foods we eat, the seeds farmers wish to cultivate and the end to political lobbying of giant chemical corporations is not a "witch hunt." Relying on so-called experts is what we have been conditioned to do since we first stepped foot in school.
Scientists funded by Monsanto is not science. Independent research with its products is forbidden and it will prosecute anyone who tries.
The entire premise of the letter writer's opinion can't hold water to the evidence already available. Aside from the health issue, we have a bigger problem of a monopoly on seeds, control of food and water by a handful of global corporations and unsustainable agricultural practices. Genetic mutations are forever, unlike pesticides or even dreaded radioactive isotopes, forever accumulating in the soil, water and air.
Organic farmers don't seem to have a problem using methods that are good for people and the planet's natural ecosystem.
When corporate profits try to trump my right to exist, the right of all beings to exist, then I draw the line. Boycotting GMOs will destroy them at the root - profits.
