There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
Ah, GMO PRATTs. Where would we be without them? Probably not furiously typing on the keyboard with some twat, who's spitting off every bad piece of crank-tastic pseudoscience that they pass off as 'truth' in their Facebook tin-hat group.
Therefore, we present GMO bingo, for your entertainment pleasure. Here are the most common arguments you'll encounter with anti-GMO proponents; just mark them off as they come up.
|"I'm not against GMOs, I'm against Monsanto"||Terminator seeds||Labeling / "right to know"||Glyphosate||Percy Schmeiser|
|"GMOs are a failure and bankrupt farmers"||Colony collapse disorder||"Do you want insect / fish genes in your food?"||Farmer suicides in India||Organic food|
|Seralini rat study||"GMOs threaten biodiversity"||FREE SPACE||Appeal to nature||"We don't know the long term effects"|
|Precautionary principle||Jeffrey Smith||Natural News||Picture of a syringe of strangely colored liquid stuck into a fruit||"It's about control of the food supply"|
|Pig stomach study||Joseph Mercola / Food Babe||Agent Orange||"How much did Monsanto pay you?"||"GMOs are poorly studied"|
