    We need to question the rise in autoimmune disease such as Celiac, MS, Lupus, food allergies and other in relation to the 1980 patent for GMO. Please research the March Against Monsanto (the primary GMO) which takes places in hundreds of cities over 60 countries all over the world on May 23, 2015. Please join one of these Marches. Be an advocate for patients, family and future!

    I would respectively disagree with you. Having worked in hospice for 15 years I can tell you I have seen more and more cancer in younger and younger people. The closer you eat to natural, non processed food the better off you are. If you can't pronounce the ingredients...I don't eat it

    Alphabet-soup RN...you rock and you so get it.
    Don't buy the lies or the GMO laden food.
    Personally, I have my own chickens (Lucy, Ethel and Ricky Roo). My own two mini milk goats and have started my aqua ponics garden. Such fun!!

    There is no scientific evidence that GMOs are harmful

    so, so much misinformation about this topic
    I would challenge anyone on this thread buying into the hype of the tinfoil hat crowd to cite one study proving they are harmful to humans

    I would advise you look outside the US for research in this area. It is interesting that the entire country of Russia has outlawed the import of GMO foods...from anywhere in an attempt to protect it's food supply. What does Putin know that our Govt refuse to acknowledge? Or, perhaps the Monsanto lobby is just too large? One has to wonder. I will continue to grow my own food thank you very much.

    Oh geez. Bandwagon arguments are total crap. Russia has also banned homosexuality, WHAT DOES PUTIN KNOW THAT OUR GOVT REFUSES TO ACKNOWLEDGE??

    The whole concept of Monsanto being this all powerful entity is just ludicrous. Monsanto made about as much money last year as whole foods. Facts are good- fear is not

    You know what's both ironic and a little hilarious at the same time?

    Not only do "organic" farmers use pesticides, just like evil GMO farmers do...but they actually have to use them in greater quantities because "natural" pesticides are not as effective.

    I guess most people on this thread won't find that funny, but I do

    You dare question that bastion of scientific knowledge and moral integrity known as Putin?

    Then I guess we'll have to stay away from passion fruit. It's a shame cause I like passion fruit.

    It is commonly processed into juice for consumption. According to Chan et al. (1972) , this fruit is highly acidic and it contains good source of niacin, riboflavin , vitamin C and vitamin A. It contains 14.41 to 21.9% of refractometeric solids, 21.9 to 69.9 mg/ (100 g samples) of ascorbic acid and 1073-1547 as i.u. of vitamin A/ (100g of samples) of carotene (Pruthi and Lal, 1959 ). 3,7-dimethylocta-1,5-diene-3, 7- diol, 3,7-dimethylocta-1,7-diene-3.6-doil, "

    GMO's are toxic and YES "Hex" there have been studies done to prove this. You won't see them in the US. Why you ask? Because the main distributor of GMO and the co product Round Up are part of the revolving door we call our government. I've read some of your other posts and it is apparent you fell for the PR stunt that big pharma and other corporations recently put out. You know the one right? The one where they get all their brainwashed sheep to spout off ridiculous statements that anything that might conflict with their agenda ie.. selling pills, patenting seeds, selling pesticides..etc, etc.. to say.. "you are anti science" only "science based XYZ is credible". I wish you could hear yourselves and how uneducated you sound. Biology is science, as is how food reacts in the human body. This is basic stuff actually but regardless... You defend GMO's because you are one of the sheep that lost your ability to think for yourself and instead parrot whatever mainstream bought and paid for media site told you to.

    Honestly if anyone want to know if GMO's are safe simply research the history of the company providing them and the riders they have paid off senators to slip into our farm bills last minute. You know, they go something like this. " Monsanto cannot now or in the future be held responsible for any consumers illness including death if it is ever proven that their product is the cause.. furthermore, no governing entity can force them to remove said product from shelves". Oh and just for fun let's throw in the BILLIONS of dollars they spend to avoid labeling their poison so people are forced to consume them. Banned in 55 and counting countries and labeled in a dozen others.. Yea, Hex. They are totally trust worthy. Eat up. After all, scientists cant be paid off to write articles for their employers! OH wait,. you mean scientists are people too? They have bills to pay too? They can actually be bribed like the rest of mere mortals? You know science has done some incredible things but just because something CAN be done, doesn't mean it should be. Bad science is bad science.

    Id like to add. We are not over populated. We throw out enough food in this country to feed other countries! Food is not whats in shortage, money is! People can't afford food. The lie Monsanto spread about GMOs being more affordable turned out to be FALSE. The lie that GMOs produce higher yields then organic versions again.. FALSE! I could go on and on..
    Holy long-windedness, Batman. So.many logical fallacies, so little time.
