A bit long, so long that I wonder who will read it.

The idea that in our country where we are supposed to have the right to speak and know that a company can pay money to have our government shut that down to force us to spend, buy and consume GMO, genetically modified organisms.

I think the research into the technology is great, but the idea that these products have the necessary research done that allows them to be sure that they work and they do not do any harm has not been done.

Nature has evolved in millions of years so we know the lessons that nature has learned are complete and "organic" and fit in with the environment and web of life, but these GMO's cannot be verified, scientists seems to not care because they are unable to prove GMO's safe whatever they do. The person who first put one of these products into the environment in my mind is a criminal.
