GMO Discussion

Recently, there have been many tweets regarding GMO’s. I would like to offer an opportunity for both sides to post their arguments with scientific support. This is intended to be a civil discussion.

Fact 1: The world population is growing.

Fact 2: Production farm land is disappearing urban sprawl, development and environmental buffers.

Fact 3: We have a social responsibility to feed people.

Fact 4: GMO plants and livestock provide the opportunity to grow more on less acres, using less herbicides and insecticides and having longer shelf life.

Question: What is your strongest argument PRO or CON regarding GMO’s?

Directions:

1. Lead your post with either “PRO GMO” of “CON GMO.

2. State your argument.

3. Post a link to your arguments SCIENTIFIC support.

4. You may also ask (polite) questions of the posters.

** ANY POST THAT DOES NOT HAVE SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT WILL BE DELETED. **

** ANY POST THAT IS A PERSONAL ATTACK ON ANOTHER POSTER WILL BE DELETED. **
