4characters, remember, you are genetically modified too. You are .00001% cockroach if you are eating GMO vegetables, and under the law, a cockroach is not a human being, and therefore not privy to the rights and freedoms of a human being. Just trying to help :)


Unless he (or she) incorporates.

GM-free cotton is neither a pesticyde, nor can live if sprayed with toxic roundup.
Organic cotton: is totaly safe and has no pesticydes or herbicydes...

Hear in an interesing excerpt from https://www.onnotextiles.com/ :

"growing conventional cotton is particularly rough on the environment. Cotton is the largest crop behind corn in the United States and consumes 10% of the world's pesticides (that's two billion pounds) and 25% of the world's insecticides (we don't know what that weighs but it's a lot). Cotton growers typically use many hazardous chemicals including aldicarb, phorate, methamidophos and endosulfan. There are at least 20 types of organophosphate and carbamate pesticides, many of which were originally developed as toxic nerve agents during World War II. These chemicals harm people, wildlife and the environment. In addition, conventional cotton requires a tremendous amount of water to grow: 106,000 cubic feet of water per acre. That's a lot of water. Can you see why we can't get excited about using conventional cotton(Onno Textiles)?"

GM cotton is modfyed not to be softer or longer, but modifyed to kill.

types of GM cotton:
-BT cotton
-Roundup ready cotton
BT turns the entire plant into a living pesticyde
Roundup is very similar to Agent Orange


On the other hand, GM-free cotton is neither a pesticyde, nor can live if sprayed with toxic roundup.
Organic cotton: is totaly safe and has no pesticydes or herbicydes...

Show me some scientific evidence.

yes it is biased... thats why I said: "Note: best if supplemented with other research"

all I said about the Myths and truths is that:The Myths&Truths "is very interesting and should be quite stymulating for you." whats the problem?

I simply tryed to answer your question to the best of my ability. This is a resorce Thread for Natural Fibers and LOVE, not a GMO dabate forum...

Do your own research, form your own opinions, and decide if you want GM cotton or not and if not, then I have some fun resorces to help.
