I’m one of those people who appreciates the concept and the need for genetically modified foods. Personally, I think it makes perfect sense to create food that is more robust and immune to certain types of disease and insectoid maladies. One, however, always hears from vocal groups about how bad genetically modified food is for oneself. The banner of Organic is currently flying high and strong in a stiff breeze of social responsibility at the moment, especially here in South Africa, where all the laanies (upper income earners) are beginning to follow the Organic lifestyle.
I’ve never truly understood the great vehemence against genetically modified foods. Why not eat foods that are gene-spliced? After all, the birds prefer them!
