GM Foods

May 6, 2008

Torah Kachur

 

Genetic modification results in cycloptic humans or a genetically superior race - at least that is what Hollywood would like you to believe.  Like with any advancing technology, everything can be used to do harm or good. 


The genetic modification of food crops might be a gold mine for companies like Monsanto, at least they are betting on it.  It is a gold mine because the foods that will be produced will be more efficient, healthy and possibly even tastier.  Is the anti-GM food movement just some hippie-do-gooders who protest any form of interfering with nature?  (although they drive their car to the organic food store). 

 

Isn't it possible that developing techniques to produce GM foods can actually be used to do good?
