it's the company if you try to find some background stories about them you'll soon realise they are pretty much trying to take over the world by ruling the food market sounds off like i wear tinfoil or **** but yeah just search for it

let me give an example they invented a plant (i'm not sure but i think it was something like soy or corn well something grown in huge amounts) which is immune to their pesiticide called roundup so far it sounds like a pretty good idea but they sued farmers with fields next to farmers who actually grow those manipulated plants because said plants spread onto the fields of the farmers who didn't by said plant which they neither wanted nor planted.

another example is that they tried to get patents on plants with special genetics which are interestung for them which some peruvian natives grew for centuries and tried to sue them for using those potatoes (not sure if it were about potatoes but that's pretty much the only things those guys grow).

and last but not least they tried to launch a gossypium (is this even a word? not a native speaker) in india immune to a certain parasite and again their pesticide which horribly failed leaving thousands of indians farmers bankrupt who saw no other way out than suicide (well they do this pretty rash in india due to their religious believes like getting reborn and stuff)

Looking at that guys sign it would cause famine, poison and disease.
But like every argument, there's always another side to it. The reason they're against it is because they don't like unknown. The intention of it would be to reduce famine and avoid poison and disease from natural foods, but with engineering there is always the theory that comes first. It would be great, but there is the chance it could **** up when its brought to reality.

Disclaimer: I didn't even know it had anything to do with genetically engineered food until you mentioned it. The response I've just gave you is an educated guess. If you decide to base your opinion on what I've just said, don't blame me if you get hate for it.
