The recent uproar on the letter from TEDx about GMO's, 'food as medicine', and natural healing.
I apologize if my debate seemed too vague but that was what I was actually going for. I know that many debates have very pointed directions. I wanted this debate to be open for talk on all components of this issue: from what TEDx's letter states, to the replies in online articles and forums, to the issues TED is talking specifically about (GMO, 'food as medicine' and natural healing). I mostly posted this debate to learn more about these topics and express my ideas on these matters.

I agree that by TED proclaiming such virtues that it is limiting itself and it's audiences on the topics that can be breached in an open and intelligent forum. By limiting even these topics, what other topics are they limiting that have not even reached the stage yet? The "TED's slogan is about 'IDEAS worth spreading' and not 'FACTS worth spreading'" is what hit the head on the nail for me. Judgement and social criticism does not belong in science nor in TED's organization.

I want to specifically reply to this portion of your post: "Moreover, he said conventional crossbreeding or cross-pollinating of different varieties for desirable traits, along with improved farming, are getting better results boosting yields at a lower cost. In fact, much of the food Americans eat has been genetically modified by those conventional methods over thousands of years, before genetic engineering came into practice." In specific to the sentence that talks about how Americans have been eating genetically modified foods through conventional methods for over thousands of year. Over time organisms evolve to the pressures applied by their environment, their natural environment. Including us: the human species. What the concern is that GMO's is removing the natural process of evolution and adaptation from the equation. What happens when you place a highly evolved organism into an organism that has not evolved at that speed yet? What happens when you continue to place that evolved organism into the un-evolved organism? Evolution is a process that takes years and years to produce an organism with the desired trait by trail and error. By removing the natural process of evolution in plants but not in the humans that are consuming them, what are the consequences: long term and short term? Not only in the stance of the human organism but what about the soil that the plants are in? The soil is a key component to a plant's survival. By changing the way a plant acts in it's environment we are also changing it's environment. What are the consequences of such actions?

I believe that this letter was very diplomatic in it's response to the hype about TEDx being choosy about the type of science to portray on their stage. However even the easy going attitude gone about in this letter cannot deny the fact that TEDx is being choosy about these particular subjects. Many subjects in science have been broadcast as proven facts to later been found as fraud, even in highly acclaimed subjects and sections. The political and economical factors behind these types of science is what makes this such a 'unproven' field. Being hushed and set aside as co-factors in health and vitality. In the long run what we eat, how we act and what we think/believe in determine every step of every days health in the overall not the moment by moment.
