For all you GMO fans out there, don't worry, there will be a "scientist" from Monsanto in here shortly to claim this is false and GMO's are perfectly safe and don't need labeling since it is all based on science.

I've just concluded my research. Everything is a-ok. You are clear to eat our food.

He may be late, apparently my State representatives are busy getting their dicks sucked by them.

When you say "getting their dicks sucked" ...what does "their" mean in the context of sucking, pursuant to the clause of "getting", as it regards the "sucked" accusation mentioned heretofor when said sucking too place allegedly? QED.

Am I legaling right?

Where does the article say GMO's are unsafe? It's my understanding that large doses of the herbicide often sprayed on GMO's (and non-GMO's) - Round Up - is the container of the carcinogen glyphosate (not the crops, or GMO-crops themselves). I have some in my garage to spray on the plants growing through the gaps of my concrete driveway. I would drink it about as soon as I'd drink the gasoline it sits next too.

The title is clickbait for organic purity nuts, and here's how you can tell:

Actual article and science: "Glyphosate linked to cancer in sufficiently large doses"

Title of Article: "MONSANTO herbicide in GMO CROPS is CARCINOGENIC: WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION'S full report."

Bolded/capped to point out clickbait buzzwords. From the same people that will tell you WHO is covering up the real data on vaccination and actual GMO crop studies...

If these crops weren't genetically modified to be round up resistant, there would be no cancer causing herbicide, glyphosate, used on them. So are the GMO crops safe to eat? No. Is the actual DNA of the crop the reason why it is unsafe, doesn't appear to be in this case. But the conclusion is the same here, this type of GMO crop is unsafe. Which means not all GMO's are safe, which means at least put a label on them so people like me can choose not to be the guinea pigs.

You should be able to debate this issue without personalized attacks, the only reason to claim that all people who disagree with you are shills is because you do not want to have the discussion of value yourself.

You have a good point but I haven't exactly seen many GMO supporters debating with any more humility. I thought it was a funny comment, a bit of irony and rubbing it in their faces at the same time and I took it as such.
