From the Author
I finally gave in and wrote a post on GMOs in October 2012 (see link at the bottom). People who absolutely hate GMOs criticized me. So did people who don't think there's anything wrong with GMOs. Because, truth to be told, I cannot side either way. GMOs aren't poisonous. We've been eating DNA throughout evolution. Furthermore, if it weren't for genetically modified rice more than half of the planet would be starving right now. And again, I'd rather feed my child with a genetically modified plant that can grow without pesticides than one drenched in chemical (and don't tell me organic is chemical-free because it's not unless it comes with a little worm inside).
In Gene Cards I came up with a plausible scenario of what could go wrong with a genetically modified plant. Bacteria are already mutating fast thanks to antibiotic resistance. What if they could get even more genetic variation from those extra genes we've been introducing in plants? I don't know that it could happen, but it's something to think about. Though what really inspired me to write Gene Cards weren't the GMOs per se. It was what I learned about the corporations producing the GMOs.
In the end, I think today's world poses a lot of tough choices and you can't win all the battles you could possibly fight. Read, stay informed and pick your battles: some are worth it, others aren't. There's good and evil in every thing, especially in a fast changing world like ours.
