  • They aren't going to kill me. The only one that concerns me is antibiotics because they might just be building a disease's resistance, which may cause problems in the future. As for the others, pesticides are a bit of a danger, but they aren't killing anyone. I am fully supportive of GMO's, though. There's no evidence of a danger, and have great potential to provide cheap food worldwide.

  • I'm only aware of the disease and cancers that they give me

  • A. People do not overuse pesticides. They are expensive as hell. (Also, would you prefer your food to not have pesticides and be full of bugs instead?) In the small amount they spray on them, they are safe. http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/health/human.htm " the amount of pesticide people are likely to be exposed to is too small to pose a risk." B. Gmos are and have been proven safe for human consumption. http://www.forbes.com/sites/jonentine/2013/10/14/2000-reasons-why-gmos-are-safe-to-eat-and-environmentally-sustainable/ c. The only thing i am worried about is the anti-biotic overuse in farms. However, since that is 1/3rd of the question, i'll vote yes. Oh, and flight? You don't vaccinate, you eat organic, do you filter fluoride out of your water to?

  • yes, because my neighbors are dying left and right from these pesticides ( sarcasm)
