How can we be over-populated if we're having less children? -Maybe the impact of having smaller families haven't hit us yet? and we're still dealing w people being alive from older times from bigger families (bigger families is referring to how many kids in one family (broken or not -i think), so that's why some can conclude at this date, we are over populated....? Sincere questions... -forgive my ignorance.

DeadFishFactory (1 day ago)
Some parts of the world are having less children. Other parts, not so much. Part of this reason is that developed countries don't need to have 10 kids, where as developing countries do. The reason behind this is that developing countries can't be sure that their 1 offspring will survive into adulthood, so you need to have 10 to hedge your bets. Unfortunately, this attitude combined with the developed country providing aid leads to a population explosion in the developing world, as medicine and food guarantees all 10 makes it to adulthood.

All readers and science respecting educated adults - this thread has been invaded by a very persistent anti-GMO troll "Almost Unreasonable" that really does post like it is MENTALLY ILL but it never stops, posting the exact same lies over and over again. First repeated lie is about GMO safety compliance to the international Codex Alimentarius convention that THE US HELPED TO DRAFT. And it has posted no less than 60 times that I am aware of, that adequate human safety trials for GMOs have not been performed. That is also a blatant nasty lie intended to sow fear mongering and doubt about the fruits of the labor of our hard working farmers. I posted direct refutation to those lies under its false comment but watch what happens tomorrow, it will post the same shit again and again, proof of its insanity. Please flag it and more importantly report its channel for cyber bullying.

I have a question. Can GMO wipe out the entire population of pests? They are bugs and can play an important role in the ecosystem of the area. Someone please educate me. I support GMO but I concern that it can have adverse effect on the ecosystem
Popeye Gordon (1 day ago)
No. Not even close! Only if the entire worlds land was covered 100% by farms and we treated 100% of all Earth's surface area including cities and parks with the most highly toxic chemical pesticides could that even possibly happen. Farmers love GMOs because they are less toxic to nature and humans. There is only one GMO pesticide and it is only a protein, not a chemical bug killer. This protein is found in natural soil bacteria called Bacillus theurigensis and organic farmers spray it heavily in their crops because it is incredibly safe and non-toxic to every thing but a few specific caterpillars that attack crops. GMO science has cleverly found a way to get crop DNA to make tiny amounts of that natural protein which is used in a few of the most popular crops like corn, soybeans, cotton and eggplant. Imaging how much farmers love it when they don't have to treat their fields at all with any insecticide! It saves them money and it is safer. So GMOs actually REDUCE chances of any insect population being threatened. You can also just type "GMO Bt pesticide" into the search window at the top of this page to see educational videos on the merits of Bt pest control.

'cos IT HASN'T been been tested to international CODEX ALIMENTARIUS standards in HUMANS...... all those studies KZGT refers to: Animal studies. and about 5%-15% of those, dependng on funding source, show HARM from GMO..... KZGT just chose to ignore that little fact.

Insects are fertile for the earth, they feed from the produce of the earth. Killing them is also killing the soil, which leads to climate changes. Rivers being dried, land not growing grasses, plants not lasting as long.
Popeye Gordon (1 day ago)
A very naive idea that no school would ever teach you, biology teachers will all tell you insects would completely wipe out the human race by starvation and disease if we let them. This is a war for survival. I'll bet anything you don't let roaches and flies run around inside your home. Did you even know that half of all humans that ever lived were killed by mosquitoes? And it is incredibly ignorant to somehow blame fewer insects for drought caused by global warming weather extremes. In fact insect populations spike during weather extremes. Earth worms and bees are extremely beneficial but corn borer and boll weevil worms are our mortal enemies. That's what GMO science battles. Aphids, mites, fungus and molds all can wipe out crops and cause farmers to lose their farms. Is that what you want?

If GMO kills 'pests', that can still have a negative impact. Insects may be at the bottom of the food chain, but we still need them to survive. How does it combat that issue?
Popeye Gordon (2 days ago)
Felina - no we absolutely do not need the pests that will completely destroy crops without intervention, these are not normally found in the food chain or nature in any significant amount, we created an environment where they can thrive while trying to destroy our crops. They are no more vital than mosquitoes which have killed half of all humans that ever lived.
DeadFishFactory (2 days ago)
GMOs aren't meant to cause an extinction of that pest. It's just meant to prevent them eating the crops so that the yield doesn't suffer.

the other reason why people hate GMO's is because there are some parents that hate science... but science is the truth
Popeye Gordon (3 days ago)
Jackson is right, and it's even worse than what he describes, a large percentage of under qualified science teachers still lie to their students, claiming GMOs are bad. The best teachers show their students the new accurate factual documentary film titled "Food Evolution", narrated by NGD Tyson. All responsible parents - ask your kids if they are being taught about GMO science and what they have learned. Encourage their teachers to play the documentary for them. $4.99 fee through Youtube online.
The COST (in lost sales) of NOT EVER DOING THE HUMAN SAFETY STUDIES, as recommended by the Codex, is FAR MORE than doing a Hundred HUMAN Clinical Safety Trials ........ Corp GMO has clever accountants, they KNOW this, yet they still shy away....... WTF are you feeding people???

Yep, the VIDEO is great, the animations & narration is like honey on fresh buttered bread..... Until you realize just how incomplete and one-sided the video is. NO HARM? WRONG! Many studies find harm, between 8.7% and 15% in fact. That's animal studies......'cos there has NEVER BEEN A HUMAN SAFETY STUDY ON GMO FOOD!! Go look....

Popeye Gordon (4 days ago)
Name three non-profit companies or farmers. Profit is the norm and absolutely not a negative. Farmers made GMOs a success because they want them. All patents expire after 20 years. Some GMOs are already expired, generic and a bargain for farmers. What about that profit evil in the long term? Do you realize patented seed is only $6 more per 50 pound bag, and farmers can profit hundreds of dollars extra for that $6 extra cost per acre?

US NAS 2016 GMO report: 'safety' caveats / loop-holes, my bolding, my brackets [ ] : " *Human Health Effects* GE crops and foods derived from them are *tested in three ways [in-house, pre-marketing, producer tests]* : animal testing, compositional analysis, and aller-genicity testing and prediction. Although the *design and analysis of many animal-feeding studies were not optimal [note zero reference to human testing]* , the many available animal experimental studies taken together provided *reasonable evidence [short-term animal evidence only]* that animals were not harmed by eating foods derived from GE crops. Data on the nutrient and chemical composition of a GE plant compared to a similar non-GE variety of the crop some-times *show statistically significant differences in nutrient and chemical composition [per Codex this should trigger Human Testing]* , but the differences have been considered to fall within the range of naturally occurring variation found in currently available non-GE crops. Many people are concerned that GE food consumption may lead to higher incidence of specific health problems including *cancer, obesity, gastrointestinal tract illnesses, kidney disease, and disorders such as autism spectrum and allergies. In the absence of long-term, case-controlled studies to examine some hypotheses [no human data, no firm safety hypthesis]* , the committee examined epidemiological datasets over time from the United States and Canada, where GE food has been consumed since the late 1990s, .........." *When reading this 'definitive GMO safety report' from the NAS, you SHOULD be getting chills up and down your spine, I know I do* .

Did you know that is is quite easy to paint those against GMOs as racist? All you have to do is point out that GM rice can decrease blindness and starvation in poor African nations, and that denying them those crops leads to the blinding and starvation of millions of Africans, who are black. Therefore it is easy to see hatred of GMOs as white Supremacy. If anyone wants to hear more Environmental BS that can be seen as racist let me know!
DeadFishFactory (9 days ago)
The problem is that you don't have to convince the people in the United States to not develop GMOs. You just have to convince the African countries stricken with famine that accepting GMO aid or seeds is worst than death. Which is what they did and what caused Zambia to turn down GM food aid.

While GMO food is harmless to human, the effect is to ecosystem. Doing carefully, it can prevent ecosystem collapse, doing wrong, the effect is the exact opposite. The problem of GMO is if the GMO creature starts outcompeting other creature. For example: if all plant becomes resistant to pest, pest would die which causes animal that eats it die from hunger. and so on. Meanwhile GMO product will outcompete the natural one, causes extinction. The GMO plant itself is a monoculture, causing inbreeding issues. On other hand, genetical engineering can save nearly extinct animal, by fixing bad gene from inbreeding. If you use GMO for carbon collection, the problem is that it might cause global cooling, which is the exact opposite of global warning, but just as harmful. We still need CO2.

GMO is bad. We are putting food that we have evolved with and ate for millions of years and are just changing the DNA to the plants/food. Its the same thing, synthetic chemicals and unnatural things don't work with our body chemistry. Natural food is what we need GMO is not what we should be eating.

Popeye Gordon (13 days ago)
It is not likely GMO science will be used for that, but rather in a process that incorporates existing GMO corn, some of which have already been done with varying degrees of success. Your comment was very poorly worded, after reading it 3 times I'm still not sure exactly what you are trying to say but my guess is the fist sentence was about a potential solution and the second sentence is about existing plastics. We could also interpret your second sentence as saying GMO plastics would be bad because you failed to clarify that it was about petrochemical plastics. And "u ppl" is just plain lazy shit grammatically, as well as dumb because plastics don't threaten our lives, over population and global warming does that. Plastic threatens the health of our oceans but would never completely kill them, just reduce them to jellyfish infested slimy algae ponds.

What a fucking joke, we are just getting started. 5 bans dropped in the last year, China now has 17 GMO crops and Africa is on the cusp of wide spread use of GMO crops. You are a genetically illiterate conspiratard. NGOs are giving GMOs away free and governments like Bangladesh make their own GMOs free for their struggling farmers. Russian trolls who attack US GMOs are being expelled from our internet. Organic farmer thugs were stopped from getting fear mongering label laws passed, Obama made sure of that. The IARC was discredited for taking bribes from organic farmers and lost its funding. "RIP" indeed!

If GMO's are so great then why do seedless watermelons suck compared to the child bearing variety?
Popeye Gordon (13 days ago)
I've had excellent ones and poor ones, this was not a good season. More than ever, weather problems and lack of labor means less flavor and more late to market melons. Every field of seedless melons has seeded parent plants nearby for pollination. You may not find seeded in every store but they are always part of annual harvests.
Keranu (13 days ago)
I was making a joke. But in all honesty, seedless watermelons taste no where near as good.
Popeye Gordon (14 days ago)
Because you are genetically illiterate and you don't know that seedless fruits are NOT GMOs. You could have saved yourself from public humiliation by simply doing a 60 second search before posting ignorance here. You can still do that search now to understand, or you can remain ignorant, your choice.
There are approx 10 000 completed GMO studies worldwide: animal safety, environmental, chemical analysis, allergenicity, yield, double-stacking, ......... 10 000 studies by scientists over around 30 years........ must be safe??? HOWEVER: ZERO HUMAN CLINICAL SAFETY STUDIES > ZERO SCIENTIFIC SAFETY DATA > ZERO SCIENTIFIC SAFETY STATEMENT > UNQUANTIFIED HUMAN RISKS ON GMO FOOD . *What a scientific FAIL to ensure public safety* . Against CODEX recommendations.

They might have been doing this for thousands of years. This would wouldve been simple grafting. Today, when you got the likes of Monsanto and dupont, who wants to control the worlds foods. These companies are run by the jews and the global jewish agenda. You cannot trust them. Its so easy to dumb down the plants by removing the goodness. (Vitamins and minerals) Inserting pesticides and herbicides into the seeds. When the plants grow and bears the fruits. Its got that crap in it. Then you wonder why theres so much cancers in the world. You dont have to look far for the answer, along with the processed foods. These industries dont have your interests at heart, along with the pharmaceutical industries, again run by jews
Popeye Gordon (17 days ago)
Fuck you for the ignorant hate speech comments, it is prohibited on Youtube you vile asshole hater. Grafting is only one method, there is seed selection, hybridization, cross breeding and more. From the humble mustard plant we got broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, turnips and more by selective breeding. And fuck you for the blatant bald faced lie about "control the world's foods", what demonstrable bullshit! The four remaining large seed sellers combined have only 1/4 of all seed sales on Earth, if that. They can never control Russia's and China's markets, nor can they ever control government seed programs, NGOs giving away seeds, online seed sales, seed swapping by neighbors, farm granges, local garden supply stores, seed banks and vaults, seed libraries, farmers saving seeds, mail order seeds, or what a billion peasants plant at the ends of 200 kilometer long foot paths onto remote mountainous regions on 4 continents where farmers plant in their ancient terraced mountain side plots.

I should show this to my Science teacher (she is against GMO plants)
All the pro-GMO rhetoric / pseudo-science is self-referncing (circular reasoning), and the underlying Tenet is that GMO IS INHERENTLY SAFE, because it 'mimmicks' natural processes. It is a fatally un-scientific flaw in logic to start with the result you want, and find evidence support it, while decrying evidence that rips it apart. See earlier link above. (or has KZGT chosen to 'ghost' that again???)
Woody While I see the GMO Food debacle similar to you, you will need to up your game significantly: GMO Corp has professional PAID shills in this (and other) thread. At first glance, they present a COMPELLING set of arguments, which mere 'common sense' will struggle to fault, making them APPEAR to be correct (DRRR...) . THE GMO NARRATIVE OF HUMAN SAFETY IS PURE PSEUDO-SCIENCE AND CANNOT BE JUSTIFIED BY RIGOROUS SCIENCE.

However, BT Toxin is allowed on Organic crops (can be washed off), it is one of the less evil Insecticides......BT , per se, is NOT the problem....... The PROBLEM is the genetic disruption when 'installing' the BT producing gene, and the side effects to the organism's 'junk DNA' as a result. Read up on epigenetics, this GMO food is a TIMEBOMB for a few generations ahead.... Thats WHY GMO CORPORATE refuses to do HUMAN CLINICAL SAFETY TRIALS...... they want the $$$$ NOW, not in 120 years..... that's the next generation's problem ..... short term gain...... sound familiar???

+Sails no, I'm a student. And a person of science. Again, you keep saying that I have blind eyes, but you have showed me ZERO research of your own. I'll ask you one more time: where is your data? Where is the information about the damage that GMOs cause? Oh, my logic with cancer was brought up because one of the main argument against GMOs is that it causes cancer. And it's fairy simple: if GMOs did caused cancer, the number of cancer cases would grow together with the increased use of GMOs. It's just simple logic. But I guess that is too complicated for you to understand.
Sails (18 days ago)
Solamoa...... The whole European union banned GMO, Asia also rejected GMO rice saying their research has proven GMO's have negative health effects. There is a huge movment in America to avoid GMO because people are coming forward and giving anecdotal evidence that by chanding their diet to NON- GMO products their health issues went away. For you to say the only measure of adverse health issues is catastrophic death by cancer is ridiculous and irresponsible. You are right...... you are an idiot. And who do you work for? Are you a genetics scientist? A farmer? To dismiss the overwhelming out cry of health issues caused by GMO looks like you have a vested interest in keeping GMO.
Martin Kozmos (20 days ago)
It's like the knife comment. It's not all bad, but it's not all good also. First we have created an over sized crop plants and put them all into monoculture production sistems. Because of monoculture and high yield plants and no knowledge about soil foodweb, we started using mineral fertilisers that gave good yield, but on the other hand we killed the soil. Now the plants are basicly on infusion all the time, wich makes them less resistent to pest and diseases, now we need pesticides to solve the problem. Ok, it works, we are all happy. The soil is dead, the renewing mechanisem starts to do it's magic to heal and protect the soil by growing weeds, now we need to get rid of weeds and we use herbicides. Now the soil is completly dead and the plant only gets the nutrients we think it needs. It is prone to diseases and pests and it needs to be take care of with all the chemical care we can get, but guess what, human narrow minded view offers another quick solution. Un-natural GMO plants. Haven't we learned anything from the past? (chemical fertilisers are a big source of food born diseases) Nature created all the solutions for ecosystem through millions of years of evolution and we think we can outsmart it in matter of decades? I don't think so. If animal and plant genes are incompatible in the nature, why should it be comaptible from our point of view? Anyways, in my oppinion use of GMO plants in controlled conditions, without danger of escaping to natural environment, not to be used as food for human consumption or feed for animals that wil become human food, is ok with me. But don't try to rape people that they need to use GMO and that GMO will save the world.
Why do you take so much time for us?? Information is absolute I guess... so... it's essential......... but Scientist have to consider the extinction and the impacts of GMOs on other organisms... but that is not that easy as there are a large number of organisms with different systems........ so.... i am just assuming they just go with their imagination first without consideration of the organism... and this cause the unbalance of nature become further......... maybe there's a way i am not aware of.....

Thank goodness FDA testing of foods no longer find dangerous levels of Atrazine, paraquat, DDT, fludioxonil, metolaclor, acephate and diazinon. Now they find minute traces of the least toxic herbicide ever formulated, glyphosate, which is 43% less toxic than table salt, and Bt, so non-toxic that organic farmers rely on it heavily. WHAT A DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENT!!!! Anti-GMO idiots claim they want to go back to that nightmare list of much more toxic pesticides. Why???? I can't imagine. We tried to ban clorpyrifos, the active ingredient in RAID bug spray until recently, but Trumpistan made that impossible and some farmers still use it in orchards. That's not a GMO pesticide but a bad one never the less.

I believe that GMOs are good but my question is: insects can gain resistance to the pesticides (so eventually resistant to the gene), at the end new pesticides have to be introduced which may take long periods of time to create. Secondly, can this affect the food chain? The pesticides may not kill humans but can it kill other animals? I am just curious about that
SY Part B, from above) Secondary / hidden / delayed effect of targeted transgenisis in ANY GMO Food. (Google those terms as well, lot's to be found). *Every GMO / Transgene organism PRESUPPOSES that our understanding of genetics fully embraces 3.5 BILLION years of evolution* : Life / Death by arbitrary trial & error. YET HUGE GAPS IN UNDERSTANDING ARE DOCUMENTED....... and still GMO gets sold, without EVER HAVING BEEN TESTED CLINICALLY ON A SINGLE HUMAN, WORLDWIDE. All the studies are on animals..... and even those show HARM 8.7% and 15% of the time.

This is also true for antibiotics. People are pissed at China for constantly prescribing last-line defense antibiotics as normal, leading to resistance to them. The key is to not have the selective pressure so high that the resistance sticks around. This means planting the GMO crops with barrier crops and shit.
