GMO is one of the most vast and revolutionary technologies of all time, it’s not necessarily a bifurcated all or none issue. Study the facts and science for yourself and I trust you will come to the conclusion that best suites you.
I'm glad to see you're scaling back your initial statements that recombinant biotechnology is inherently dangerous and that all GMOs are bad. That is at least a start.
However, your post is mostly devoid of substance.
Don't tell me
about "studying the facts and science for myself." You are the one that has demonstrated a misunderstanding of the scientific method. You see, under the scientific method, you need to cite peer-reviewed studies about the toxicity of GM cotton before you raise alarms about GM cotton. You have failed to do that. That's the true way that science works. I don't want to see pictures of "cattle killed by GM cotton" or pictures of "farmers killed by cotton." I don't want to see a footnote for an Indian "medical examiner's report." I want to see a study published in a respected journal like the New England Journal of Medicine or Nature or Science, or anything published on PubMed.
Until then, it's imprudent and quite frankly dangerous to our society be making these accusations and spreading misinformation.
Kindly, put up or shut up clogging the board with your diatribe about GM cotton.
