Fair. I understand the difference between GMO and traditional hybridization, that foods produced using genetic modification are not proven to be safe long-term, and that this technology hurts individual producers by locking them into purchasing certain product lines. I believe GMO crops cause more, not less, pesticide use.
Clean, healthy food has been my passion for a long time. The influence of big ag on food policy concerns me deeply, as does the loss of individually owned, working farms.
