GMOs... yes or no? (Genetically modified food)

Just trying to see how people feel about Genetically Modifed organisms/food
I would like to see more strong Yes/No ... I feel like a lot of people are on the fense (grey area where some GMO are okay, some are not) but I would REALLY like to see some strong opinions on this topic

    Today's GM foods, despite extensive propaganda to the contrary, are manufactured solely for profit, by large companies that are able to manipulate governments and influence policy to their own advantage.
    People need to be able to trust those who control our food production. Unfortunately both the historical, and current actions of these companies do not engender such trust.
