Opinion Poll – GMOs

I am incredibly busy – we have a great deal going on at work, I’m finally homing in on the end of this cookbook and I’m making tacos for about a dozen teenagers this evening.  Life keeps getting in the way of this little obsession I call a blog, but I guess that’s not necessarily a bad thing, is it?

At any rate, I haven’t had time to finish a post Beloved and I have been working on the last couple of days, but I’ll give you a little background information about it.

Earlier this week, I shared this photo on the blog’s Facebook page:

David Suzuki

My addition to this was, “I’m putting my money on ‘LYING.'”

One of the commenters on this particular thread dismissed Dr. Suzuki as “an eco-terrorist” with his own agenda, and challenged me to give him “one example of GMO products have caused any harm!”

My response to this person is the subject of the post I haven’t had time to finish this week, but I’d like to post it next week.  We’ve got a good start on this, but I was thinking that you know, my readers are pretty diverse and really darn smart – I wonder what they think about this?

So tell me – what do you think of GMOs?  Are the harmful, both to our health, our environment and our economy?  Or are they the answer to the problem of feeding our growing numbers worldwide?

Let me know what you think in the comments section; if you can back your assertions up with hard facts, that would be great.  All I ask is that you keep it respectful of those with opposing views.
