you're missing the point. The select few industrial GMO products that are being jammed down our throats were marketed as using LESS herbicide...not more. I have nothing against the concept of GMOs. I have everything against the lies and nonsense surrounding this though...and how any hint of negativity against them earns you the "anti science" label...it's ludicrous. You can grow more food, and be sustainable, without the use of this crap. The studies are out there, and the farmers are proving it right now. Kind of hard to cut through the layers of bullshit though when you have people like this out there...

Read the middle half of my last reply. Round-Up ready crops do use less herbicide than conventionals.

Sometimes, and in some places, but not always, and not everywhere.

Kevin Folta did not profit personally from Monsanto's 15K which was used for expenses incurred from some public lectures. On the other hand, the livelihood of the guys who are smearing him is dependent upon a well-funded anti-GMO lobbying organization. This particular organization, US Right to Know lists their donors on the website. This major donor is a lobbying organization for the organic food industry. US Right to Know is just two guys.

Here's another example of many.

Most of the public's position on gmos is fueled by misinformation and fear-based marketing from these groups.
