Monsanto Wiki:

 

 

Monsanto was among the first to genetically modify a plant cell, along with three academic teams, which was announced in 1983,[4] and was among the first to conduct field trials of genetically modified crops, which it did in 1987. It remained one of the top 10 U.S. chemical companies until it divested most of its chemical businesses between 1997 and 2002, through a process of mergers and spin-offs that focused the company on biotechnology.

Centuries? You sure about that?



Where have you been, people for centuries have genetically modified the coding of plants genes with high tech alien computers.

Wheat was thousands of years ago.

Is hybridization the same as what Monsanto started doing in the 80's with the modification of cells?

No

 

But it's all on a spectrum of genetic intervention.  Almost no food falls in the "Zero intervention" category.

 

My question to you is, if one insists black-and-white "GMO" vs "Non-GMO" labeling, where does one draw the line?

When they start tinkering with the cells like Monsanto is doing is where you draw the line.

The anti GMO people need to become more informed and more specific because I think their concerns are important. It's an important conversation to have but it needs to be an intellectual one. Not all GMOs are bad and not all things natural are good.

Agreed. Fruits are iffy for the most part, too much sugar. Wheat and grains are no bueno either. But vegetables on the other hand, those are our lifeline.

Technically there is no such thing as vegetables. Don't worry, scientists will invent a pill with Alice in Wonderland like wording saying eat me which will fill us up in the future.
