If that were true Monsanto would not need to be taking farmers to court over saving and replanting seeds.

Organic vs. synthetic: regarding nutrients, a plant has no idea if nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, etc. is from an organic source or not. The elemental qualities as used by the plant makes it totally irrelevant from the plants point of view.

The idea of sustainablility is much more important then the idea of being organic. What is the most sustainable resource for each plant nutrient? For example: Bat guano is an excellent source of organic nitrogen. But, it is a terrible source of nitrogen from a sustainability standpoint.

It's much more appropriate to buy local and buy in season.

I'm with you on concern #1, but since the seeds from GMO foods are sterile there's only a very slim to zero chance of #2.

And you're last concern is what is going to kill our society as a whole. Nothing is 100% safe, never has been. The concept of 100% safety is what is guiding public sentiment and by extension- legislation.
That I very untrue. People save RR soybeans all the time. It illegal but the grown and produce just fine. One issue some guys will bring up is volunteer corn in bean fields. That simply means that some corn from the last years harvest fell on the ground and grows. With it being RR it's harder to kill it off.

This thread reeks of paranoia and arrogance for those who don't believe in the anti-Monsanto way of life.

I am not paranoid but my questions are simple, if a company is doing nothing wrong then why does a company need so many lobbyists? Why does the government allow food companies to have managers in the FDA? Why do so many states have anti gag laws. I am all about free enterprise and letting people buy whatever they want but companies shouldn't be able to stop people from reporting on their practices. People have a right to know what is in their food and how it is produced.

It doesn't bother anyone that like four main companies own pretty much all of the food produced in the country?

I also don't think GMO food is going to make me have three headed babies because it's genetically modified but it does worry me that it is grown in so many chemicals. Plants absorb whatever is in the soil and the rain washes into the ground so you can't wash off the pesticides and fertilizers. I would rather not put that crap in my body.

I stand corrected. It's been a while since I followed GMO closely.
