Martin Duffy Posted about 1 year ago GMOs... yes or no? (Genetically modified food) Farmers, historically, have attempted to genetically modify their crops in a relatively simple way - motivated primarily by the very real needs - of survival. 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.
