I'm not trying to be insulting here, but there are certain times that your lack of knowledge of the basic levels of genetics absolutely astounds me. you cry from the rooftops about how they're out to get you, but you don't understand the basic biology of what you're complaining about. I know it's easy to wear a tin-foil hat, but do yourself and all of us a favor and gain a bit of knowledge on the subjects you try to deride--it's AMAZING how, with a bit of knowledge, 99% of the concerns you raise go right away because you aren't ignorant anymore.
I find it repulsive that we have to create new types of food when the old ones are fine. Changing one gene can have greater affect than what we can measure. I know I don't want to be a guinea pig for these money hungry bastards who could honestly care less what impact they will have as long as the dollars are flowing.
