In Response to GMO plants. 2 questions.:
The 1st is a simple pesticide and herbicide “level” question.
GMO plants are genetically altered to internally produce pesticides and herbicides. Food harvested from those plants have internal pesticide and herbicide levels.
What are the FDA internal pesticide and herbicide restrictions imposed on GMO “harvested” food?
My 2nd question.
A GMO plant is an invasive plant. For decades, those invasive plants with their internal levels of pesticides and herbicides have been spreading thru out our country and for that matter the world. As they did that, their pollen crossbred indigenous plants of the same species. Those hybrids are also invasive plants with internal pesticide and herbicide levels.
At the end of its annual life cycle, a GMO plant releases its internal pesticides and herbicides into our environment. Over decades, the concentration of both in our soil, air, and water has increased and will continue to increase. That begs the question:
What is that doing to the subsurface and above surface plant and animal life that sustains our food production? The stuff in a mulch pit that makes soil worldwide? Ocean plankton? A mother’s milk? Her egg?

My guess is the answer to both is "nothing good", otherwise the ones making the GMO would be shouting it's effects to the rafters instead of getting Repugs to pass Monsanto Laws.
