    What are your views on genetically modified foods? Do you have any apprehensions about them?

    If it's been genetically modified, I won't eat it.  Mother Nature did a perfect job on our foodstuffs; so, why would we eat something that has been tampered with?  Frank N. Stein has entered the produce market, everyone beware.

    These are called "Frankenfoods".  Get used to them.  Because of the huge overpopulation problem -- nearly 7 billion up from 3 or 4 billion in the 1960s -- FACTORY farming of produce, fruit, and livestock has become a NECESSITY.  Next, seafood.  It is impossible to raise enough natural food for all, anymore.  Those of us that prefer natural food are finding it scarcer and scarcer and more expensive.

    If you don't like that, and you are a religious wacko against birth control and abortion, or a boo-hoo liberal concerned about starving children in wogland, you have only yourself to blame.

    Over the last 20 years, I have heard these foods called "Frankenfoods." I wouldn't eat them. Our bodies are like a fine tuned machines. They are designed to run on the foods naturally grown on this planet. Eating man made foods is like putting diesel fuel in a car designed to run on gasoline. It is just not a good idea.

    Thanks CM for answering this. I have my concerns too about GM foods, although I am not sure if we can totally trash it, given the ever-increasing population and limited land available for cultivation. I wonder if we'd have to switch over to GM foods in the long term out of necessity?

    Obviously, genetically modified foods of any sort can't be healthy as they have been altered using some sort of chemical reaction. I have and always will recommend growing your own food as much as possible. Personally I mainly eat food from my own veggie patch and fruit trees.

    Meat eaters have no choice in the nature of how the end product finishes up on the table unless you are lucky enough to own or live on a farm and produce your own meats of choice.

    Chemicals and genetically modified foods are out and organically grown foods are in!
