I want to advise you to not engage in an Edit War and also the health problems are not recognized and are debated by the World Health Organization, Food and Agriculture organization of the UN and many other scientific and or health orientated bodies. It's only really a fringe group with baseless assertions claiming what you claim. This may sound like an argument by authority but these are reached following the scientific method. This is why you should not continue in this direction. Kosterortiizbrock (talk) 01:05, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
- A fringe group against GMO may exist, but there are scientists who are critics of transgenics, and their opinions shouldn't be disconsidered. --Gh1900 (talk) 21:50, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
- Irrelevant, some scientists support creationism. eVil áτheIsτ CO∏SPî®aÇ¥ (talk) 18:49, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
- The lack of a consensus on safety on all counts is irrelevant, many organizations say it is not harmful. The lack of some organizations agreeing with the consensus for sure is negative proof. They haven't passed negative judgments.eVil áτheIsτ CO∏SPî®aÇ¥ (talk) 19:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

The Green Revolution and the rural exodus
I've reverted your claim about a direct, causal link between The Green Revolution (TGR) and the rural exodus (again) as you still haven't provided anything that illustrates/demonstrates that the two are actually causally linked. As I've explained on Talk:Norman Borlaug and in a new explanatory footnote, the clearing of forest to grow cash crops for export and the dispossession of poor peasants with the same ends in mind seems completely unrelated to TGR.
In a nutshell: While both TGR and the focus on cash crops for export are examples of "factory farming", the latter two are much broader phenomena and thus you can't just automatically lay the blame for the adverse effects of them at the feet of the TGR, just because both TGR, factory farming and deforestation to clear land for cash crops for exports are found in Brazil (hence my footnote example of Indonesia where TGR had relatively little impact, but which has also seen extensive deforestation to clear land for growing cash crops for export, i.e. palm oil).
This entry was meant mostly as a heads up, but I thought I'd add a sort of explanatory summary. However, any response is probably better placed at the Norman Borlaug talk page. ScepticWombat (talk) 03:14, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
