I agree. GMO's are like playing God. Time and time again, it has been proven that mankind's flaws reflect in anything he makes. Leave the "creating" to God (or "nature" if youre the PC type). If God wants us to have super-fruits, He will invent them.
The problem is; people are motivated more by money then health and safety. we will tolerate a certain level of toxins in our municipal water (floride for one) if we can have it at minimal cost. People buy the past-prime produce at walmart to save a buck, even though it tastes like crap.
I am by NO MEANS a tree-hugging type, but when it comes to our health and longevity, we need to stop thinking with our wallets.
I cant remember the guys name, but its rumored that a man in the 15th century who lived close to 150 years, he was a strict vegan who ate whole raw foods, he didnt even cook anything because of the detrimental effect on the nutritional value.
I dont mean to sound preachy, in fact, a bacon cheeseburger with hand cut fries cooked in lard sounds pretty good right now, so long as the beef came from a good farm and the potatoes came from an organic farmers market.
