I would like to tell the viewers that i have a personal friend in Nebraska that works for Mikigen seeds and he told me that the reason i seen so many fields with corn stalks withered and down was because of the "hybrid" seed that was used.He said" the crop has no strength to stand up to windy conditions" as a regular corn stalk can. The experimental seed was to increase yield,but if you lose it to mother nature, what have you gained?

Just want to ask if you would visit this link and maybe after browsing it you may want to share this information with your viewers. We must stand up and be heard or disease will continue to escalate at an alarming rate, our children will suffer untold atrocities as a result of the horrible things which are being done to our food. Not only the GMO problem, but the pesticides, antibiotics and other filthy and dangerous processes our food is exposed to by the profiteers in the food industry. https://us-mg5.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=ff6lnmhhqgqtl#mail

Will you air programming that presents the other side of the GMO discussion? I will be disappointed if you don't because there are facts that oppose some of the scare tactics I am seeing on this program. I would be interested to know if you are open to airing both sides of this issue.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your comments. CPT12 strives to present diverse views and opinions as much as possible. The station is currently not aware of any pro-GMO documentaries that are available for Colorado broadcast. If you have any suggestions please pass them on.
An invitation has been extended to Monsanto twice to be interviewed and appear in the CPT12 studio, during the airing of a film questioning GMO testing and safety. Both times they declined and sent this comment:
STATEMENT ISSUED BY MONSANTO TO CPT12
 
Monsanto is 100 percent focused on agriculture and our business succeeds when farmers find our products offer them value on their farms. Because Monsanto is a leader in biotechnology, our company and products are often the subject of activist campaigns which are not always balanced or accurate. We provide Monsanto’s position and perspective on a wide range of issues at www.monsanto.com.
 
 
When investigative, sometimes controversial or independent films are aired as part of our fundraising schedule, we present information as - just that. We highlight that we are presenting a pointed side of a certain issue or idea, and always encourage people to do their own research and investigation.
 
Thank you for taking some time to investigate today!
 
Sincerely,
 
Shari Bernson
Director of Development

I have been aware of GMOs for a number of years and have been frightened for those same number of years. How can large companies like Monsanto get away with their "God-like" behaviors? I want to know about GMOs in my food because I would not buy them for myself or my family. Where is the FDA in this debate? Where is the Agriculture department? Does money really outweigh everything else? I am truly shamed by how little 'voice' we actually have to change how our food supply is begotten. Globally, we will in the future and have in the past paid for those wrong decisions concerning our food supply. May God help us all.

Scary

I'm a relative newcomer to the organic, non-GMO, sustainable farming discussion, but color me convinced. Dinking around with the food chain can't possibly end well for any living thing, plant or animal. But here's another thing that scares the snot out of me. If Monsanto (for example) owns the patent on GMO seeds, and controls (ultimately) how much of that product is available and to which farmers, what's keeping Monsanto from deciding to limit availability in order to pump up the selling price? Last time I looked, Monsanto was operating from a profit driven business model. Now I understand that there is profit to be made in organic farming, but the truth is that if you control input, you control the output. If the idea of a corporation, any corporation, controlling the "inputs" of our food chain doesn't frighten you, I don't know what will. Our food supply is too important to leave that exposed, that vulnerable, that unprotected.
Thank you .

Prayers Thank you Karen from Colorado

WOW! I am so thankful you are airing this, hopefully it will be aired more places. We have been watching the GMO issue for a long time and are horrified at the march toward our own destruction that is being supported by our legislatures, federal and local. And even trying to buy clean food without GMO food additives, but also without other preservatives that also apply to our genetic destruction. As far as labeling, I think the producers of clean food need to be labeling as such - organic if you want to use that term alone - but that would force everyone who is concerned about GMO to look for the labels that show non-GMO labeling. the next issue is geoengineering of the skies!!!
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and support.
It seems that pretty much everything we purchase these days has a barcode label, so labeling per se is not the problem. The information contained in the label seems to be where the problem lies.
All the Best,
