DailyDirt: Creating Superfoods For Fun Profit

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Feeding billions of people isn’t an easy task. Farming isn’t actually the hardest part. Food distribution and food waste are much more challenging than simply growing more food for people. It’s good that we have multiple biotech solutions for making plants and animals that are easier to raise and grow, but some of the concerns about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) aren’t totally unfounded. Turning back the clock on genetic research isn’t going to happen, but we should also keep an eye on what’s going on.

Good luck with the GMO debate with so called "geeks"

Why do ‘geeks’ and those that always think they are the smartest always reject any criticism of GMO foods?

I understand the science behind it, but I also understand that reality isn’t Star Trek. I am against GMO simply because even the scientists working on those issues aren’t really sure of the long-term effect. There is nothing wrong with being cautious, and simply labeling the food like we do for everything in food processing so the consumer can decide for himself.

And I won’t even go into the ethical side of the debate, which is the complete monopolization of food production by a few giant corporations. Screw fighting the next MPAA on Food Copyright.

Oh, I’m pretty sure there are “geeks” who think items for sale should be well labeled. It is the GMO folks who are afraid of disclosure. If in order to sell your product you have to hide what your product is, then one might think there is a problem there somewhere -no?
