    GMO Foods: Are They Safe

    I know a little knowledge about Genetically-Modified Foods or Genetically-Engineered Foods. In my opinion I think GMO foods are unsafe and harmful to the human body. Scientists pure some much different DNA to different foods so they can create "superfoods." I think they all GMO foods should be banned everywhere worldwide. What's your opinion on GMO foods?

    Main issue I have read about is allergies that modified foods might pose.

    Re: GMO Foods: Are They Safe

    That's... a little extreme of an opinion. Quite a few people would starve to death if that ever happened, and it would be effectively unenforcable. I realize that it makes me something of a devil's advocate, but I actually approve of cautiously modified foods. They can cause certain problems (I know my aunt has to eat organic, unmodified everything), for certain people, but you can't halt the progression of science, and I think that the net benefit is greater than the net loss. We do need to prevent the copyright of GMOs, though; that stands as firmly immoral in my book.

    And if they put pork genes in everything? ... Sorry terrorists ... NOT ...
    I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them ... John Bernard Books


    Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official; "You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done."

    The Chief nodded in agreement.

    The official continued; "Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"

    The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied.. "When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine Man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex."

    Then the chief leaned back and smiled; "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."

    Wait isn't not eating pork an Islam thing? Not just terrorists?

    Also GMO's? Meh, I'm still kicking and apparently I've eaten buckets of them.
    White and Red 'till I'm cold and dead.
    In Days of yore,
    From Britain's shore
    Wolfe the dauntless hero came
    And planted firm Britannia's flag
    On Canada's fair domain.
    Here may it wave,
    Our boast, our pride
    And joined in love together,
    The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,
    The Maple Leaf Forever.

    Didn't want to appear prejudice so I included all terrorists ... Not just the more obvious ones ...
