I personally am quite against them. And I am horrified that they aren't required by law to be labelled. What do you think?
I personally am happy to eat them, but I still think they should be labelled
How do you feel about their impact on the environment?
I am concerned about cross breeding with wild species, but happy that it can reduce application of pesticides.
what about the plants that are resistant to herbicides so that more can be applied?
Because the crop is resistent, you can apply less herbicide. Because you can do it as they grow rather then wiping out everything in the soil before/after cropping.
if the crops are more resistant, that means more herbicides. They're to keep weeds from growing, so if they're more resistant then they don't have to be as gentle with the application of the plant poisons
Incorrect. The whole point of Round-Up-Ready etc is that you don't have to blast the field with herbicide before planting. You can use a much smaller amount only as required knowing the crop will not be affected. This is a net reduction in herbicide use.
Just means that more poisons are being put into our bodies. I'm against them as well, unfortuantely try to find a veggie that isn't modified.
This stuff really scares me. I mostly eat organic. But I can't afford to do it all the time. Apparently, to our government food is food, and so long as it doesn't kill laboratory mice then humans should gleefully eat it. I don't know who to trust anymore when it comes to who is monitoring our food production. Scary stuff going on out there.

Here's the good news! They are labeled! Read this one. The codes are called PLU codes and they work in most major grocery stores. They are on those little sticky labels or on the stand where the item is located. Read more:
