I’m shocked at the FReepers on here who are a-ok with laboratory created foods & seem to be in denial about the endemic medical problems that have arisen since our diets changed to one that’s more highly-processed & less natural.
And for those who want to claim that GMOs exist in nature through hundreds of years of selective & cross-breeding, they really ought to get a clue. Something happening like that naturally in nature is far different from some mad scientist in a lab splicing viral DNA into a crop.
There is no such thing as a natural diet in the present.
There are no current foods sold in stores that are not the result of genetic manipulation.
There are various molds, fungi and bacteria at work constantly reworking plant genomes. Then there's hard radiation from outerspace ~ hits this place all the time ~ sometimes it zip zaps the reproductive regions and there you go ~ another species, or variety, or harmful mutation!
Exactly! I can't help but remember back when animal fats were 'bad', so they started making all vegetable oil, then WHOOPS! hydrogenated vegetable oil and creating trans fats turned out to be even worse!
Now there using DNA in seeds like tinkertoys without a CLUE as to what the long-term affect of their tinkering on the people will even be.
Thanks, but no thanks.
Breeding a certain trait into a crop slowly, over fifty years is good, but adding it in five is bad? Why?
