GM foods have actually saved millions of lives in the grand scheme of things. But "GM foods" or "GM Corn" covers a huge diversity of products some good some bad, which is never pointed out by these "Studies". "GM Foods" does not mean radioactive mutation type of things like many people think, and many articles would lead you to believe.
Monsanto is certainly an evil corporation for many corporation reasons, but the overwhelming majority of the GM foods they provide are perfectly safe for human consumption.
Herbicide modified corn is very likely bad. But that's not an accurate representation of GM Foods or the GM Industry. Currently just about every single local supermarket uses perfectly safe GM Foods. Including such particulars as Whole Foods
Don't hate the overwhelmingly positive value of GM Foods as a whole because of an individual shitty strain. Hate Monsanto, but don't hate GM Foods.
All we ask is for it to be labeled, then those that don't mind eating something not naturally found can have at it and those that don't won't.
