Well, as you well know now, GM food is now coming out of the realms of sci-fi into reality because as you probably know, with an ever increasing population, a greater demand for food is required which means food has to be either;
A. Grown faster
B. Grown bigger in the same amount of time
An example of this is where in India (my teacher told me this and has apparently written a paper on it) how western scientists in Switzerland helped design a drought resistant rice called "Golden Rice" due to it growing far faster and having a high amount of vitamin A within it.
As of yet, there have been NO side effects from this strain of GM food and the majority of fear is hyped up by the media because they NEVER pick out the benefits only things like "Liver cancer in cows caused by Frankenfoods". Do they forget to mention that the majority of these cows have THE SAME father resulting in the potential result of genetics having problems as well?
What do you think?
