Shouldn't we all have choice?

Quote:
Don't you have the same choice as they do? As far as you practicable can remove GM soya and maize from your diet.


Excuse me? Are you serious?

Quote:
Completely.


You couldn't be. Do I or anyone have any decsion at all? !


You do. I have pointed it out and you seem to have ignored it without comment.

Quote:
Yes, you do, just as the notice stated.


What notice?


The notice in the link you posted and which is quoted at the beginning of this post. Did you not read your own references?

Quote:
Are there notices posted when we shop for groceries? Monsanto has lobbied with their millions of dollars to make sure the consumer does not know what they are buying. Why have they spent millions to ensure we are kept in the dark? Maybe because they know we would vote with our consumer dollars and walk.


You can still do so. You can walk from any product for which you do not have knowledge of the source as was noted below.

Ohhh that is such a nice choice Wayne. Since GMO's are not obliged to be labelled ... yet ... we can all rely on our farmers markets, or grow our own.

Quote:
Are you suggesting that we have choice because we can decide NOT to include corn from our diet?

Quote:
No, you can choose to buy certified organic or locally grwon corn where you know are produced from non-GM seeds ... or GM seeds of which you approve.


Quote:
Great. But consider the wind. Organics are being contaminated by GM seeds.


No, they are not. There can be some localized cross pollination but no known contamination by seeds.

You left off the "by seeds" as you had initially claimed and I had quoted.

Quote:
Localized? Is the wind local?


Wind transport of pollen is.

Quote:
Ohhh Wayne, I have no more time for this than I do the colonization of Mars as a solution to the problems we encounter on Earth!


I can imagine why with all of the misinformation you need to get straightened out.


Quote:
Anyways, stay tuned!


Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel?

Did I miss something, or are those wigging out over GMO's still not clued in to the fact that they've been consuming mutant crops all their lives already?

But those are good mutant crops and the others may be bad mutant crops .....
