    These latest studies as per original post , have been published by who??
    The last two days I have been trying to find info on this group to see if they have any credibility or any credentials behind their names,to be able to verify their studies, but I have not found anything to back them up.
    It really makes me wonder if they have any connection to "The Big Chemical Co's.] and consequently "Big Dollars "

    After over 20 years of studies on the negativity of GMO'd corn, I have serious doubts about this latest , that [It is good for you].
    I will stick with and believe all the studies on it's negativity and be happy to see more song birds and monarch butterflies because there are fewer chemicals /sprays being used to grow non GMO'd corn, by which we all benefit.

    GMO corn and beans actually lead to less pesticide use on the whole.

    Jaycee,

    This was not a study. It was an analysis/summary of every peer-reviewed study that the research scientists could find (over 6000 studies) conducted during the last 21 years.

    The scientists were from the University of Pisa in Italy. No idea where the funding came from but neither Italy or Europe are known for being pro-GMO. In fact they are usually quite anti-GMO.

    The way i understand their findings is that the studies show both pros and cons where GMO corn is concerned but that on the average the peer-reviewed results show significantly more pros than cons.

    I have no ideological problems with eating GMO produce. Sometimes, hell quite often science improves agriculture.
    Iím suspicious of people who don't like dogs, but I trust a dog who doesn't like a person.

    The above may be questionable, for comparison;

    A good friend of ours[dairy farmer] with just over 300 head in his dairy herd, has over that last number of years gone back to organic farming, claiming he is not loosing cows like he used to, they are not aborting, his herd is healthier, better and more milk production. He claims this has all happened and he can verify with records over the years , that going back to organic , is costing him less , with a healthier herd.

    If a dairy herd is much healthier by being fed organic feed, would it not also make sense that the same reasoning would apply to the humane race , we would be healthier if we weren't fed all those chemicals in the food we eat?
    When I was much/much younger, in elementary school, high school, [fat kids & adults were the exception], now look around we are surrounded by them waddling all over the place , Why ???

    Don't forget it is all dollars and cents for companies like " Bayer " /Monsanto , millions/billions.

    In our area there are quite a few farmers slowly going back to the old ways, getting away from chemicals .
    Also in our area , a few cash croppers are going away from chemicals and in time their farms will be certified organic, there is one in particular that is farming close to 700 acres organically, he gets almost 3 times more for his organic corn and soybeans than the farmer next to us that relies on GMO'd seed and chemicals which really pizzez our neighbor to no end.

    There must be something to growing organic if it brings a higher market price.

    is this farmer getting the same yield as producers that use gm seed ?

    Doesn't have to, he gets three times the market value for his product.
