Plenty more to fear than GMOs

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
I wonder how many people who are paranoid about GMOs have no problem consuming alcohol, tobacco, red meat, high-fat/sugar/salt foods, driving while impaired or distracted, or engaging in a hundred other things that are more likely to harm them than GMOs? Genetically-modified foods have been around a long time, and genetic mutation occurs naturally in plant foods. The paranoia appears to have more to do with political correctness and fashion than substance.
