if it were not for GMO foods we would not be able to feed the current populations we have, you can choose not to believe it but it is the truth. We cannot feed the world with "Organics". grow up and educate yourselves and stop being good little sheeple and think for yourselves.

Scott, you've been misled if you believe GMO can sustainably feed the world. Genes artificially cut from strands of DNA of an eel & a variety of Pacific Salmon then artificially inserted into the fertilized eggs of Atlantic Salmon? Eels & Salmon can't mate and produce offspring. Animals & plants who are crossbred can produce offspring. Nature doesn't allow viable offspring from inter-species breeding. This GMO combination produces a huge salmon that grows 4 times faster requiring 4x the...

Scott, you've been misled if you believe GMO can sustainably feed the world.

Eels & Salmon can't mate and produce offspring. Animals & plants who are crossbred can produce offspring. Nature doesn't allow viable offspring from inter-species breeding. This GMO combination produces a huge salmon that grows 4 times faster requiring 4x the food. If GMO fish are allowed, they will undoubtedly get out into the wild, cause environmental damage & decimate wild populations in many ways. GMO fish also have elevated levels of IGF-1 growth hormone which causes prostate, breast and colon cancers. Just because humans have the capacity to create new kinds of life doesn't mean it's a great idea to go ahead & do it, then lie to the public because it makes a bundle of money. It's far more complicated than what meets the eye. Education is necessary!

As a chef for 23 years and from a family of farmers i am quite educated on GMO, both in large scale and small scale. You understand that yellow corn you eat is a GMO? You understand that red roma tomato you put in your salad is a GMO? Humans have been cross breading plants for centuries. Heirloom tomatoes are an excellent example of a GMO which has been cross bread for centuries. They have cross bread a rice strain that is flood resistant and being used through out the far east and is...

You understand that red roma tomato you put in your salad is a GMO? Humans have been cross breading plants for centuries. Heirloom tomatoes are an excellent example of a GMO which has been cross bread for centuries. They have cross bread a rice strain that is flood resistant and being used through out the far east and is helping reduce crop loss and food shortages. Our staple crops have been bread to be resistant to many of the molds and fungi that have decimated them in years past. "Organic" crops cannot withstand them as well and have to be grown in smaller batches which leads to their increased cost, low yield, low supply and high demand, economics 101 = high prices.

Yes, crossbreeding has been going on for centuries but that's not how GMOs are created. I'm a chef trained in Europe 40 years ago, have many interests & talents in many other fields & I do a lot of research. Biotechnology has made many useful strides, but when it comes to GMO's, the chemicals they promote & the bio engineered lifeforms that would hasten the ecological demise of planet Earth, I shall side with the thousands of scientists, doctors and PHD's who agree in writing that studies...

Good luck with your cooking and please, with such a wealth of knowledge at our fingertips, do continue to educate yourself.

Scott- Thanks for reading this petition, but I cannot understand your assertion that GMO is necessary to feed the world. In truth, large monoculture GMO planting is the single most dangerous threat to global food security. Please read the UN report on feeding the world. http://unctad.org/en/PublicationsLibrary/ditcted2012d3_en.pdf This is only the latest UN report that has found (scientifically, not through interested corporate "studies") that small-scale organic farming is the only and best way to feed the world.

Scott, we would have no problem feeding the entire population on this planet on organic foods if they followed Einsteins advice and became vegetarian or vegans. I've been vegan for 36 years now. Most people just don't have the intelligence Einstein had and can't quite accept this yet.

Sorry Scott, GMO crops are smaller and provide no nutritional value, maybe you should educate yourself before you pop off with propaganda lies and deceit.

Went to Safeway's FaceBook wall and posted this message all over the site... Really cool! There's a phone App that tells you if it's GMO or not... Or if the product contains harmful ingredients.
'Buycotting' a company means to support a company that has principles in line with yours. How do you support a company? You buy their products. On the same token, you can 'boycott' products from companies that have practices that are not inline with your principles and ethics.

When Independent testing was done by the FDA some of the findings on GM were extremely worrying & since no Independent testing was done many new GM products are being used- watch the documentary 'The Future of Food'- you will soon see what all the fuss is about!

I agree with Dave. We are already engineering our food sources to feed an expanding world population. However, consumers also need to know what they are buying, so accurate labeling is a must.

Last year in Gran Manan, Nova Scotia, I was'nt able to buy sardines: a fisherman told me they were fished, among others, to feed salmon, not humans.... It is also true that concentration of farmed salmon brings diseases and parasites that are already spreading to the wild population in certain areas. And it is unfortunate that foods are engineered under the popular argument that it allows to feed an expanding population. Engineered foods were, mainly if not completely, a created need meant...

Last year in Gran Manan, Nova Scotia, I was'nt able to buy sardines: a fisherman told me they were fished, among others, to feed salmon, not humans.... It is also true that concentration of farmed salmon brings diseases and parasites that are already spreading to the wild population in certain areas. And it is unfortunate that foods are engineered under the popular argument that it allows to feed an expanding population. Engineered foods were, mainly if not completely, a created need meant to enrich seed companies under arguments that made them acceptable to us. Humans have always been able to select seed varieties and agricultural methods efficient under different environments and not only at small scale farming. Globalization should allow for rapid distribution of such methods and seeds under rapid climate conditions... but our governments have decided to support mainly, if not only, an industrial type of agriculture. Being it bad for my health or not, I don't want to support that.

Maybe when we kick the Monsanto share holders out of our Government, they will wake up to the poison this company is trying to feed us... Its a fact that no other country in the world wants GMO foods... even the nations that are starving rejected boat loads of GMO food... NOW That has to tell you something other than how stupid Americans are. OH Just read an article that even the cafeteria at the MONSANTO PLANT only serves heirloom grown products.... HELLO!!!!!

Im concerned too after reading this article about genetic reared salmon this is very harmfull to our fish stocks around the world and our health of the Human Race. We must not buy this food and it must be labled securly too. so people know about this risk to there Health whew this is bad people.

You are completely ignorant about vaccines as a cause of "depopulation". The fact is that in developed nations infant and child mortality is significantly decreased because vaccines have wiped out whooping cough, polio, tetanus and a host of other diseases which are mostly deadly to infants and young children.
