In a lab it can happen faster. In nature it happens slowly. Not all GMO's are bad fro us. Thing good things of BMO are the ones they make such as a longer growing season or grown in a hattoer climate or cooler clomate. It can also be done for insect relling of certain plants that were weaker in that. There are a variety of ways that GMO's are done in the lab and in nature.

Absolutely correct - great explanation.
Right on. Nature does not genetically modify foods. Scientists do and it's killing us, the environment, and many wildlife species.
organism whose gene has been engineered in the lab in order to favor the expression of desired physiological traits or the production of desired biological products.http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/897705/g...
LG watch this with an open mind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6OxbpLwEjQ it's a full documentary with many experts. They don't fight labeling GMO's or ban them in other countries for no good reason.
lisavollrath you should write a hub on that if you haven't already. Great info, thanks for sharing.
I watched it. Monsanto is not the only one of the block! Breeding dogs and cats for specific traits IS GMO too as well as some fruits that we eat and so on and so forth. There are always another side to things.
NO. Breeding does NOT result in genetic modification. GM refers to the altering of the DNA in a lab, by the splicing of genes from one breed into another. A GMO cat is one that glows in the dark, from having jellyfish genes spliced into its DNA.
Bee colony collapse was and is not from pesticides. It is a fungus to only that species of bee. Too many Anit-bacteria meds is the cause for Americans getting sicker. I know about the bans. Many things that were GMO did not make it to mass product
There are Harvard studies that have linked the neonicotinoids in pesticides to colony collapse. The pesticides we use in mass quantities are killing wildlife and probably us too. We'll just have to agree to disagree on GMO's :)
Who is paying for those studies and what is their agenda? We have been using pesticides for a very long time, since at least the 1940's. Solitary bees do a much better polinating plants than Honey Bees. We exploited the Honey Bees.
If it's an agenda you're looking for I'd look at Monsanto
You are only thinking about the one thing and not the whole. There are GOOD things that have been modified. See those.
I'm more concerned about profits over people, lack of safety checks etc. Fire does good for some people too, not so much when it burns down your house though.. GMO foods are going too far
That was not the purpose of this question. Grafting of Apples to get more kinds of apples is also GMO. Thornless Blackberries is alo GMO.
