Comment: It's in our food... (Score 1) 454

So why not have it in our grass?

Seriously, though. GM crops are such a hotly debated topic that it's hard to see past the extremes of each viewpoint and come to a reasonable consensus regarding the issue. Americans have been eating GM food for years and have managed not to grow too many extra limbs unless you count the abundance of jelly rolls turned extra sets of titties that have graced the upper halves of many an American.

Genetic modification of foods can be used responsibly. However, I'm uncomfortable with GM crops possibly not being adequately contained. I think that should be the largest of our worries. There should be more freedom of choice and GM foods should be labeled as such.
