Is anyone else here worried about genetically modified organisms? If so, do you have any tips on how to avoid them? Unfortunately, I live in an area without a health food/organic food store.<br><br><br><br>
Sometimes I think the government will allow anything to be put in the food supply as long as there is money to be made...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">

What do you mean by "organisms?" Do you mean tomatos and so on? If so, you've probably been eating them longer than you know GMOs have been around for over 10 years (longer in some cases) -- especially vegetables. Most have been modified to give higher yields, to make them easier to ship and also to preserve. There is a GMO tomato that gives you twice the amount of lycopene than other natural tomatos. Not all GMO's are science-fiction horrors (in fact, none are) Without GMO's in some cases, vegetables would be outrageously expensive-- another perk for the rich, and probably many more people would suffer from malnutrition.
