Questions
1. General Comments Your decision on GE foods is obviously being controlled by the food companies and is not being controled by the people. The majority of people are oppossed to GE foods outright or desire more testing for enviromental impact. GE corn has already been proven to kill butterflies due to the pesticide that it naturally produces. There has been no testing however to prove or disprove that this GE foods do not trigger allergies in people. Not to mention what the enviromental impact of plants that can produce their own pesticides. The overuse of pesticides has already polluted our water and only allowed the pests to develop an immunity. How do we know that any of these plants will be safe for people, our unborn children, our pets, or the many benificial animals and insects that are in this world? You have no evidence, so why will you allow these possible dangers into our food supply and our farmland?
