    I'm listening to a podcast debate on it and both sides make some good points.

    What do you think?

    to date, they are...

    I understand the rage on both sides, but as long as we have a choice, what is the problem?

    Corn is the number one GMO food.

    I try to buy foods that are labeled 'organic'. I'm not comfortable eating anything "modified".

    It can't be good for you in the long run. Our bodies are built to consume what was already here in the first place.

    You can't improve upon God's already perfect work. It doesn't even matter if you don't believe in God. Its just common sense to not eat something that was designed to make a bug's stomach explode.

    Who gives a shit.
    You could be killed in a freak accident tomorrow.

    Let me know when there is an official cause of death from eating modified foods.

    Let's just go GMO and get rid of heirloom everything. In fact, let's let GMOs naturalize over everything "natural" and wipe it out. Best practices, for a safe and happy humanity.

    I'm gonna go blow some GMO seeds into the wind right now. BBL
