Here's a quote from Jane Goodall, whom I most admire:
"How could we ever have thought it was a good idea to grow our foods with poisons."

Frankly Dame Goodall should stick to the science she knows

As African nations reopen the idea of using GMO across to fight drought ravaged areas. We should really take our cues from totalitarian regimes like Venezuela

BTW, I greatly admire Dame Goodall.
Who are you to say "she should stick to the science she knows!"
Stick it, sparty.

Is Dame Goodall a plant scientist? A biochemist? A geneticist? Nope. dame Goodall is a great primatologist. She should stick to what she knows, unless plagiarism is what she knows

"Stick it"? Because I choose to get my information on biotechnology from people in that field and not an tired old primatologist. Charming

Again, this thread is about GMOs. Neonics are not part of GMO crops. Bees colonies continue to rise in numbers too. The whole Sky is Falling shtick is tired.

Do you go see a podiatrist for your car? A mechanic for your physical. Dame Goodall is out of her league and a plagiarist

The mouthpiece of the organic movement? You don't say?

"The ban affects cafeterias and food stands in every elementary school, middle school and high school in Taiwan, The China Post reported. Schools have traditionally served food products such as soybeans, corn, salmon, tofu and soy milk that contain GMOs."

Salmon huh? Just got FDA approval here but is already there... Hmmm. People will. Believe anything

Dame Goodall:

It's ignorant to disparage her.
You have a tendency to do that when you don't like what's posted, in case you haven't noticed.

I'm not disparaging her. She is a wonderful primatologist and anthropologist. She is not a plant geneticist.

Moving the goalposts is what the anti science crowd does. They will read the GMOs are safe report and only take away, "yeah, but crop yields aren't going up as much as we were told they were with GMOs so BAN THEM!!!"

Good Grief!
Like neither of you EVER go off any frigging topic.
Enjoy your pesticides.
Be happy to buy you a glass of Roundup.
