    "The real truth is that NO research has ever been done on non GMO crops. Some examples are non GMO wheat, peaches, apples, squash, tomatoes, chicken meat, green beans, kale, pork chops, almost everything that we put into our pie hole. While GMO crops must endure a long and extensive approval process that involves credible scientific research."

    ^^This. I've studied this subject a lot from both sides. Nature cross pollinates on it's own. Just like in humans or any other animal when plants are "bred" the seeds could come out to hold any number of genetic combinations. To quote Forrest Gump, it's "like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get." When .researched in a lab we know that certain genes are changed. That is monitored. In nature we don't. Take Giant Ragweed or Marestail for example, it's changed it's genetics to become resistant to the glyphosate herbicide. We didn't breed it to do that, it did it on it's own. I'm not saying one way or the other is right but to me, GMO corn and soybeans are just in an accelerated breeding program . One could argue we are all GMOs,even our beloved chickens....:)

    Just my 2ยข Not trying to fuel a fire.
