I'm as forward thinking as the next guy (well maybe not on this list), but
personally I'll stick to the old-fashioned food for as long as possible. I
know the general consensus is that GM food is OK. But the same thing was
thought about such things as cigarette smoking, silicone breasts and
thalydomide (sp?) once upon a time. Sure maybe GM stuff is harmless, but my
goal is long life. I ain't taking any chances ;)
