GMO Farmer Won’t Eat His Own Crops

A U.S. Farmer named Kirk Bair grows GMO crops, but won’t eat them.

Like other farmers in the U.S., he grows them to reduce his workload and to be able to grow food economically. And come on. Without having to buy equipment to spray herbicides or the herbicides themselves, you know it saves them money.

At the same time, he knows that GMO crops are bad for people. Still. he grows and sells them.

Why are GMO foods bad for you? Among other reasons, Kirk Bair says they’re bad for you because they are infused with herbicides (it’s why they don’t need to spray their crops), but that comes with the unfortunate consequence of the consumers ingesting those very herbicides.

A farmer who grows GMO crops, knows they’re dangerous to everybody’s health, but grows and sells them anyway, to save money, reduce work, and grow them “economically.” There’s something wrong with that, isn’t there?

He’ll knowingly sell dangerous crops to us but won’t eat them himself. Kind of like all those people concerned about global warming flying around in their private jets while telling us to cut back, do without, sacrifice.

This guy even supported a California GMO label initiative saying, “People need to know what they’re eating. People want to know what they’re eating.”

But he then grows it. I’m a little confused. Are you confused too?

  1. Some of the farmers don’t have a choice. Monsanto has a lot of power.
