It is possible to work with nature to control weeds and pests, but our arrogance and greed won't allow us to do that.
We believe we can in perpituity use technolgy and engineering to get our way... for the most part, we can... but in the end, Mother Nature always wins.... I rue the day when we are set straight.

The only way to combat the abuses of corporations like Monsanto is with good, honest science not fabricated B.S.
Based on what? The opinions of toxicologists that New Scientist will not name?

I would not be surprised to learn that those toxicologists work for guess who -- Monsanto.

Where is your skepticism for Monsanto's research on this -- which found no ill effects?

The initial studies should have not have been done by Monsanto -- but by independent laboratories.

Even if the new results are in question, as William Engdahl points out, the precautionary principle ought to apply here. In other words, Monsanto's GMO corn seeds should be banned until a follow up study by an independent lab is completed.

But I guess the health of the people is not something that matters to you. Well, it matters to me.

Money buys everything today, politicians, judges, and yes, even scientists.

Attention Feydakin.

Of course there are certain scientists (usually with links to the agro-industry) who always seem to be strident in calling for peer-reviewed evidence when people are critical of the biotech sector, but then rubbish it and smear or intimidate the scientists involved when that occurs, as has been the case with Dr Arsad Pusztai in the UK or Professor Seralini in France. It is therefore quite revealing that most of the data pertaining to glyphosate safety came from industry studies, not from peer-reviewed science, and the original data are not available for independent scrutiny.


For the rest...
