According to Geneticist David Suzuki, human beings are part of a “massive genetic experiment,” and one is right to be concerned. Suzuki points out:
“One small mutation in a human being can determine so much, the point is when you move a gene, one gene, one tiny gene out of an organism into a different one you completely change its context. There is no way to predict how it’s going to behave and what the outcome will be. We think that we design these life forms, but it’s like taking the Toronto orchestra prepared to play a Beethoven symphony and then you take some random drummers from “here” and flip them in with the Toronto symphony and you say play music. What comes out is going to be something very very different. Publicists say that there is good intention behind GMOs, but the fact of the matter is it’s driven by money.”
Until genetically modified foods are banned in all countries, take initiative for your and your family’s health by choosing to abstain from GM-containing foods. Most processed foods containing artificial sweeteners (high fructose corn syrup, for example) contain GMOs, so opt for organic, source local, and grow your own food so you can take control of your own health and help preserve the planet.
