How could you write this whole post and never once tell us where you got it?? Pizza, salad, who cares! It looks delicious.

@24 I don't think you can say the pushers are anti-science. It requires a lot of scientific effort to create those crops. I think you can say that they are anti-public awareness and extremely pro-science (as long as they are making money with it). GMO crops are definitely not sustainable, but at the same time there doesn't appear to be any harm from eating them. I would actually argue that we don't really know the effects, but the likelihood of harm appears extremely low. I have over 20 years working in genetics and genomics, I have worked for both the corporate and academic sides of science and currently run the laboratory for the genome center at UW. Personally, I have always considered Monsanto to be an evil giant, and I am pro-labeling mainly based on the fact that people should be provided as much information about what they are buying as possible.
