yes I would also like to know why millioms of dollars are being spent on fighting labeling....would love to know the answer .
I think it would be fairly simple, even if it is true that millions are spent to prevent labelling. Think about it. If someone had tabbed the name "free" as meaning poison, and death and destruction of all life as we know it and that was free roaming on the internet. Wouldn't you want to keep that title away from your child? Now, we all understand that "free" has a meaning that is actually ok and a good thing. But what if everyone else thought it should be destroyed based off of misinformation. Wouldn't you try to keep that title off of your child and just let your child be actually, free? What if people believed all the misinformation on the internet about things they don't understand, from people that want them to believe what they want them to believe about a thing to "go against the man"?
f_corporatism - simple answer to your question: no, GMO seeds and crops do not threaten the extinction of all seeds. Most plants cannot breed between species and the huge diversity of plants on the planet means that the risk you are describing is not one to be concerned with.
Do gmo seeds/crops not threaten the extinction of all seeds because it will cross breed and make all seeds gmo?
If GMO's are so safe why are you afraid to have gmo foods labeled and why are you spending millions of dollars on fighting labeling instead of just letting the people choose labeling?
