Battle Over GMOs Continues

Ranchers Say No to Crop Ban2 compressedMEDFORD, Ore. — The Battle over a ban of genetically modified organisms in the Rogue Valley is a hot election issue. Farmers on both sides continue to reach out to voters in an effort to impact the outcome.

Today, the Jackson County Cattlewomen’s Association is teaming up with the Stockman’s Association to urge voters to reject the GMO ban. Opponents of the ban say the technology increases food production and is less harmful to the environment.

Supporters of the proposal say GMOs have undefined impacts and their use can taint surrounding farms.

    The girl who claims she started working on a farm at 2 is a liar. Half my family grew up on farms and no 2yr old can do productive Farm Work. Additionally if her parents were allowing her around farm equipment by herself at 2 yrs old they should have been charged with child abuse. The anti GMO people talk of lies. They have put out the biggest lies of any measure I’ve seen in 30 years. Time for an un biased News investigation of this ad. The 2 yr old farmer. BS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    This is a blatant lie. Real life experience and many scientific studies have shown that the exact opposite is true: GMO farming increases toxic herbicide and pesticide use, and food production decreases dramatically. It's easy to find the results of these studies.

    Many GMO crops (Starlink Corn, Golden Rice, etc.) have been epic failures. The evidence is more than clear. Stop believing the mega chemical corporations who promote their poisons, to the detriment of us all. Our collective health is being destroyed by these monsters.
