GMOs are not the devil
GMOs -- like almost any technological advance -- have positive implications to go along with the more widely publicized negatives. The technology itself isn't morally wrong and can certainly be used for "good."
"And all these people in their comfy houses eating their high-priced non-GMO foods don't give a fuck that there are millions of children in the Third World who are only alive today because of GMO crops. It's selfish, it's blind, and it's very, very dangerous," said GAGirlChild.
User dontmakemepoop (who shouldn't be judged solely on his name) weighs in: "Agriculture researcher here. The general idea of GMO's....all of our food has been altered and bred in some way to get to this point. Our food plants are ever-evolving and there are a lot more terrifying inputs in our daily lives than wheat that may have gasp a bit of rye DNA."
While ShadowDragonCHW adds some context. "The Irish Potato Famine was solved with a modified potato. GMOs can be great. Genetic modification is a TOOL that can be used for GOOD or EVIL but it is not inherently EITHER."
"Geneticist here. Can confirm, inserting huge amounts of unknown foreign DNA into the genome of a plant is totally normal every day technique in 'traditional breeding'. Yet people do not care about this at all, but are terrified if we insert a very short, completely known DNA sequence into the genome," said Durumbuzafeju, rounding out the argument.
Overall, these are words of wisdom delivered by anonymous strangers behind a computer screen. While you shouldn't take everything they say as base fact, a simple Google search will lead you to more detailed explanations of their claims. And for what it's worth, everything here holds up. Finally, some strangers on the internet we can actually trust.
