Can we agree that GMOs aren't inherently bad, but they are a tool that can be used for evil?

This actually doesn't sound so bad since they're not going to inject toxin genes into our foods to make them toxic to animals (including us, despite what they claim) or genes that'll make crops impervious to herbicides and insecticides (and again, toxic to us). But let's face it, Monsanto will find a way to do evil with it like they always do.

Do you have any sources for this, or is it just the anti-science left?

You need a source to prove that Monsanto uses GMOs to sell roundup? Most of their GMOs are designed to withstand incredibly high doses of the roundup herbicide - which is obviously devastating to the ecosystem and anything that eats the crops. And other GMOs they make have foreign genes inserted into them to make them toxic to pests, so that's true too.

I don't need to read the link. I'm a farmer and I work in a pesticides warehouse. Roundup is a carcinogen.
