I've been eating genetically modified food since I was born. :)

livestock (cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, etc.) have been eating genetically modified foods for years. yes, years. and the livestock population is fine. unless there is some twit out there that thinks he can link mad cow to modified corn...

if it doesn't hurt them (think how many millions, maybe billions, of farm animals have been feasting on this stuff already... and they are just fine...) then it's probably safe to say it would be ok to eat for us, of course testing of any new agricultural product in the united states is conducted by the FDA. if it was on the market, i would feel safe eating it.

who... doesnt... trust... the... government... hehe...

So we modify all food to be the same, have the same characteristics and the same immunities. Thus a disease that can kill one, kills all. Then we have no more of this food.

I do eat it, but i dont want to. Unfortunately, there are no labels that tell you.

Just if ya guys wanna know, the food we eath is about 20% modified. This i know due to that we had a class in school that was about food and so un during my last year.
So we already EAT genetically midified food.

I votes yes ^_^

well i would say that 99& of food that we eat is modified by human not that fast way but during thousands years... for easy sample to prove this is dog... well only few people eats dogs but there are like 10 000 different types of dog... so humans have done that gene manipulatin for thousands years by the slow way...

Sure. I'm for genetically modified people too.... Specialized modification... Find a way to modify someone in the course of their own lifetime. For example, someone wants to be a deep-sea diver, create some sort of elective gene therapy, so they can tolerate higher pressures better. Would also revolutionize plastic surgery.

Science-fiction mumbo jumbo....

I'd be the first person to buy a nacho flavored banana.

Well, as long as the foods don't have less nutrients and more water weight, it's ok by me. I mean, its not like they're growing cornfields in nuclear waste sites.

The only downside is hyrdophonic farms. Their food is watery and disgusting, since most flavor comes from acids in soil. You can especially taste the difference in a store bought tomato when compared to Gran'ma's homegrown variety. The smaller scale production is simply better.

Absolutely. Most people (as in, VAST majority) have no clue that about 15% or more (depending on where you are) of veggies you buy are already "genetically modified". It's been going on for well over a decade, it's nothing new. It's just getting publicity now, and more radical changes are planned (such as, increasing vitamin C an extra 10% instead of 5% in oranges).

Seriously. Most corn you buy has been modified at some point, even the "natural" stuff, unless it specifically states that it was not genetically modified. Tomatos have had many changes, mostly to improve shelf life and color.

Yes: IF it was made in a clean sterilized quality approved lab, Id give it a go.. if it was just off the street.. i wouldn't touch it if my life depended on it.

I think it would depend on how it is modified. If it is made to taste better that would have to depend on whose taste it's made for...if I thought it tasted good I'd eat it :) Also if they add certain nutrients that would be good for the body in foods that aren't necessarily the most beneficial then yeah...I think I would eat that too. But my mind is always telling me not to be too trusting...who's to stop companies from putting certain things in their food to make you addicted...or from putting certain things which can alter your state of mind. I think my fear just might overpower my excitement for genetically altered foods.

Sure. Why not? It's not like humans have never modified food genetically before. I mean, that's exactly what breeding is. Just not so "direct".

Btw, I don't understand how "gen food" should have an influence on human evolution? Could you please explain, Hameed?

yeah same here.. in principle I have nothing again genetically modified foods.. because food of all kinds has been selectively bred for years... but i would have to know information to how and why it has been genetically modified

Personally i am really against modifying food, its pretty scarey, it could affect human evolution.

Its really bad, there been studies that it causes cancers in rats. I suggest you avoid them as much as you can. So many people are not informed how dangerous they could be.

It also just depends on how far science must go before a fruit isn't considered natural anymore. I'm sure we've all enjoyed a nice seedless watermelon....

I really don't think that a true limit will ever be in place. It's not the sort of thing you can just say "this far and no farther", someone will always find a way around it.

Personally, I'm all for it. As long as the modified plants aren't allowed to spread if they've been enhanced to survive better. THAT will screw up ecosystems, and that's bad.

I can't remember the details, but in high school science we talked about a strain of corn that almost ended up killing off a entire species of spiders. I remember them saying it was really close.

Yeah I'm for it too though.

Why not ... everything we eat has been genetically modified anyway, albeit naturally. I see little difference.
