Survey: Only 15% of Farmers would Eat GMO Food

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Genetic Engineering page and our Millions Against Monsanto page.

The British survey was funded by Barclays Bank and done in collaboration with Farmers Weekly.

Only 15% of farmers polled said they would eat GMO food. Talk about a blanket rejection. It can't get much clearer than that.

Obviously, these backward farmers want to protect their own health. Who ever heard of such a thing! How dare they! They're supposed to follow the party line. They're supposed to say, "Yum yum, give me some GM."

Well, funny things happen when people consider their own bodies. They tell you what they really think.

You see, 61% of the farmers said they'd grow GMO crops "if they had the opportunity." In other words, they'd willingly endanger other people's health, but not their own.

"Just business, nothing personal."

Reminds me of the idea of sending government officials who declare war into the field with weapons.

"No, I said the war was necessary. I didn't say I'd risk my own life out there with all those crazies running around. Besides, I suffer from migraines and my doctor told me I have to avoid stress."

Or: "Everybody is hereby ordered to go on the Obamacare plan. Except those of us in the Congress who have our own plan."

The farmers survey should have included the following questions, for the 61% of farmers who said they'd grow GMO crops if given the chance: "Would you eat what you sell every day of your life?"

"And if not, what is wrong with you?"
