World Pesticides could be making you fat - Over 300lbs? must be those damn pesticides!

Can you please say that again, but less autistically this time?
Uhh... really?

OK, I'll try.

The most popular forms of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) are a patented corn, and a patented soybean. The genetic modification made to those food items was to make them more resistant to RoundUp, a popular pesticide. Therefore, GMO corn and soybeans are more likely to be doused in pesticide than organically grown corn or soybeans.

Was my first post really unclear?

Thank you, see, this is much clearer, although it's a bit of a correlation fallacy. Before, you didn't use many clarifying words, so I was utterly baffled by your statement.

However, "the most popular form of (X) is used as a Bad Thing" shouldn't be grounds to discard it entirely. Electricity is responsible for thousands of directly linked deaths a year, yet the power still runs.

Also, lemme just say that the current market economy of genetic modification is fucked, and Monsant (I know there's a filter) needs to be either broken up or held more accountable, since it's basically a monopoly in there.

No, no, certainly not. Just disagreeing with the statement someone made that "GMO crops have less pesticides than organic crops".

We've been GMing Os since we started farming, we just did it through breeding. I have no problem with the idea, although I don't like some of the IP law surrounding it. The idea of someone owning a patent on the US's food source is deeply, deeply troubling to me.
