Let me be clear. GMO hasn't been linked to health effects. Yet.....
And no, the farmer in the article did NOT use traditional methods. Tilling is traditional. He doesn't till. He plants a plethora of crop cover plants. He leaves his corn stalks to rot in the field. Basically, he's taking care of the land, and yes, sometimes he still uses chemicals... but it's FAR reduced. And he's doing better than his neighbors.
I read your study. Did you read the article at all, or did you just skim it? Or do you just not know anything about farming? I do. I grew up on a farm. I'm also NOT saying GMOs bad. I'm saying Stupid Farming Bad. I'm saying mass Pesticide and Herbicide use is lazy farming, and harmful to the soil and ecosystem.
I think you're assuming I'm a hippy. I think you're fighting a stereotype instead of what I'm saying.
