I have not written much about GMOs [genetically modified organisms] because… because I did not want to come across as some conspiracy theorist who has an axe to grind against ‘Frankenfoods’.
The truth is, I do not believe genetic engineering is inherently ‘wrong’ or ‘evil’. Like any branch of science, genetic research has the potential to save lives. But…
But the sneaky introduction of genetically modified organisms into our food chain was not the solution to some dire ‘need’. There is nothing wrong with the food we currently have. So why ‘fix’ it? The answer is to make money.
Again, making money is not inherently ‘wrong’ or ‘evil’. But… when the imperative to make money results in :
1. Buying legislators to ensure GM food does NOT have to go through the same rigorous, and expensive testing as drugs, and
2. Denies consumers both knowledge and choice
then that is morally wrong, and an abuse of the technology.
But don’t take my word for it. Please follow the link below to a post with truly shocking facts and figures.
