Defining GMOSubmitted by fyi2day on Sun, 05/19/2013 - 18:20
What food isn't GMO anyway? This term needs better definition on our forum and in the public debate.
From the Wiki:
"The term GMO is very close to the technical legal term, 'living modified organism' defined in the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety, which regulates international trade in living GMOs (specifically, "any living organism that possesses a novel combination of genetic material obtained through the use of modern biotechnology").
So did dear old Dad and your loving Mother create a GMO in you through selective breeding?
What if a doctor selected the best traits from your mom's family and your dad's and stirred you up in a petri dish??? Hybridization.
What if they went outside the family, the race, the genus, the species???
The Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety (CPoB) is a little too NWO for me.
What are the lines here?
At what point do we demand the science before the implementation and draw that line in the sand? That seems to me to be the big question to answer first in the public debate before we can effectively tackle this politically. The government is not going to do this for us. Why? Because there is no money in delayed implementation. That would be an ethical move. Not likely, as we know.
