Given the amount of starvation in the world, I think those dice have to be rolled. And when you really look at what GMOs do (modify animals so their meat has less fat, modify flaxseed to produce more omega 3, modify wheat to have more B vitamins, modify bacteria to produce insulin) it doesn't sound all that daunting at all. Much of the response to these things is ignorance and hysteria -- I read articles headlined "cereal given to children has GMO" as if it were poison. Reminds me that some people who use microwaves every day in their kitchens complain they would never buy "irradiated" food.
