Game Over on GMO Debate According to Neil Young
Neil Young continues his quest to speak truth to power.
According to a post on his official Facebook page, GMO's cause cancer:
This is the ONLY relevant study that unequivocally proves that the Genetic Modification, ITSELF, independent of Roundup, shocks the poor plant, which then goes into oxidative stress and depletes Glutathione, the most important anti-oxidant, and accumulates formaldehyde, a cancer causing chemical. This shows that a GMO is not "substantially equivalent" to the non-GMO.

Of course, the pro-Monsanto shills are jumping all over Neil for citing a less prestigious scientific journal. This is a common tactic when one can't counter the argument factually, you attack the messenger.
Or construct the false equivalency strawman argument to attack.
Obviously, Monsanto is very concerned about Neil Young's new album The Monsanto Years and the tour bringing awareness to a larger audience so they have their trolls hard at work. So we'll just add this...
The aimless blade of science cuts both ways. Science can only be as accurate and correct as the underlying observations and facts. Bad data equals bad science and vice versa.
And just remember this about science.
Science once said that cigarettes do not cause lung cancer.
Science once said that low level radiation is harmless.
Science once said that the earth was flat and that the sun revolved around the earth.
As one comment states:
"Science is a continuous, evolving process, in which there are, in actuality, no "truths," merely the closest approximations to the truth available *at that time.*"So Neil Young has slashed the pearly gates once more as he continues to speak truth to power. And so the powers that be (or never were) are less than happy and slashing back.
As always, use discernment. Or as a wise man once said, "Please take my advice, don't listen to me."
