Neither can crack dealers (if they were sold legally). However food companies are given a green light to manipulate, decieve or flat out lie to their consumer base. If they are being in honest, the consumer has complete responsibility, however, that is not the case. People all day every day are told X is healthy and they eat it assuming that it is. People are destroying their bodies and believing they are doing the right things. It is not the same.
    In addition, Monsato (and others) have successfully lobbied Congress to pass laws which forbid sellers from providing information about the product, such as whether it contains GMO's, or BHG's.

    Their actions indicate they have something to hide.

    We know they are putting highly addictive and toxic nicotine creating genes in plants, which I believe also sets up young people to be future tobacco consumers. What other genes for addictive substances are they also adding, to create other dependencies?

    Since you can't trust your government and you can't trust your food suppliers, I'd say you're pretty much screwed.

    Well, while I don't agree with the furor, it'll be interesting to see if anything gets done.

    The GMO controversy ranks right up there with anti-vaccine rhetoric, global warming, and overpopulation scares for bogosity. GMO seeds will be the source of another green revolution that will make Paul Ehrlich and his supporters look like a fools AGAIN. No wonder some liberals are upset about it.

    GMO, or altering the DNA of a plant is relatively recent.
    I'm pretty sure DNA being "altered" occurs every generation of any species.

    You could literally list hundreds of baseless health scares that have circulated around. Chemo-phobia is pretty common in modern day, and as long as you use the big-word sounding name for things people will be afraid of it and think its toxic.
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
