I hope you're aware that if the entire world were to go organic, a good bit of the population would soon die out from starvation because organic crops simply can't provide yields large enough to feed everyone on the planet. GMOs can.    
   
I recommend you educate yourself on the outcomes of the Green Revolution lest you become just another smelly hippie.

We could feed the starving people of the world with all the grain we feed our cattle for our meat addiction.

the question is how was it modified for all we know it was corn optimized for fuel or chemical use rather than food

Because this is a totally well-controlled and balanced study where all the variables were accounted for.

You're right. Why else would ther be loose corn laying around. The squirrels would have gone for the loose corn before eating those that are still stuck.

This is rather ironic. Seeing as though I have my Genetic Engineering final tomorrow, and all we learn about is how to create plants and crops that tailored to our needs.

In all honesty, though, if you don't like or think GM crops are good for us, there is something wrong with you. More likely, you just need to be more educated on them, as a whole. Science is about making things better for us, not for harming us. We aren't putting random genes in plants, we're putting only what we need in there. Whether that's resistance to herbicides/pests or introducing compounds that many people are deficient of (ex Golden rice).

GM crops are for the better.

Everyone is defending GM

Any of you seen Food Inc. ?

Disturbing ****.

And believe it or not productivity can be matched, I think we've gone the wrong direction. We should have focused on agricultural science instead of genetic and chemical.

Ohh come on people   -  no matter what type of food we will grow    
   
If we keep  growing that fast we will end up with nothing to eat and nowhere to live    
that is just a fact   
   
and we just have the good end of the deal now - even as hundreds are starving in just this moment

The United States alone makes enough food for the entire world to live off of. A large amount of that goes towards feeding livestock, and another large amount gets wasted via mishaps and when people don't buy it, but the fact remains that the entirety of the population of Earth could fit in the United States with one acre plots per family (assuming average family size of 4) with 1,000,000 square miles leftover, and that the entirety of the population of Earth could be fed off of the food produced by the United States. The US currently uses approx. 900 million acres of farmland, and by fitting the population of the Earth into the US it leaves 600 million acres of land leftover. By expanding into Canada and Mexico, it would be extremely easy to both fit and feed the entire population of the planet in the area of North America alone, with enough space to expand to double that size if necessary.

You do realize that the USA grows enough corn every single year to feed almost half of the 1 billion starving people around the world, don't you? You do realize that the reason why we still have world hunger is because it is more profitable to turn corn into Ethanol than it is to sell is as food, right? GMOs tend not to be more productive or nutritious than Organic food, and can require a great deal more attention and preventative measures (pesticides, herbicides etc) to keep healthy.

Many culturally significant mexican foods (pozole, huitlacoche, etcetera) will disappear if GM corn gets mixed. As a fan of pozole, I disagree.

Cotton takes up vast tracts of land and is incredibly easy to replace with Hemp. Invariably, Hemp is heartier (can be grown in just about any climate) and requires far fewer resources and smaller plot sizes to produce as much or more than a cotton field could. If all the cotton fields were removed and replaced with hemp, pot-heads would have their weed, the world would have it's textile supply and all the left over space could be used for food.

Then why don't they genetically modify humans so we don't need food. Or, at least, to need very little resources to survive. Or to be able to get sustenance from rocks and other stuff we have plenty of lying around.
Or give us superpowers ? Super KoRn powers.
Or make us immortal.
Or at least make us motivated (biggest superpower of them all).

Part of my post was a joke. Probably a bad one, since thumbed up.


As genetics and genomics go, I know some of the current restrictions and possibilities we have. I have been working on a project related to cancer research and can say this:

> the future of space travel and teraforming lies in genomics and modifying the human genome to make us more energy efficient. Like allowing us live from breathing another gas, rather than the air we know.

> we will be able to create genetic material from almost nothing by generating the DNA sequence which is required and feeding it to produce its cells. To do this, we must learn everything about DNA sequences, and, due to the limited technology we have, it's nearly impossible to map DNA sequences of organisms more complicated than one cell (viruses, bacteria). We have an aproximation, but it's not enough

> we will be able to cheaply heal any dissease, time-effective


Now, kindly explain why you had to be a dickhead ?

sigh.....you're ******* dense and ignorant are you? 1. it's easier to modify food stuffs, 2. try to model out the entire human race 7+ billion, if we tried your plan, we'd be long dead before we can produce you new "human" race, people are.....**** it, here's a lesson



If we all went organic (growing **** organically) we, with the amount of agricultural land we have around the world would only be able to feed about maybe 3-4 billion people (ya, try having the other few billion starving to death on your mind), thanks to this man ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Borlaug ) we have the ability to grow enough foods for everyone!!, people who grow **** organically are soo far up themselves (most of them) it amazes me, **** it bring the hate, I care not to write anymore to idiots (not all of you, of course) (do some research, I won't for you)
