That is a very difficult question to answer....especially for someone that was merely a Biology major.
However, what is clear is that GMO food can lead to infertility (one of the goals of the manufacturers) and so many diseases that it would be difficult to list them all.
Besides diseases and infertility, there are also the abundant birth defects that occur.
...besides the diseases, infertility (the goal of the manufacturers), and birth defects, there is the issue of the poison herbicides and pesticides that the criminals in Monsanto and the United States Food and Drug Administration claim to be "safe."
The nation of France, one of our long time allies, I might add - has recently CONVICTED Monsanto of poisoning it's citizens.
Changes in DNA happen all the time...but over the course of so many years that "all the time" is relative to one's perspective. I'd say it is unlikely at all that GMO foods could change anyone's DNA in one's own lifetime, but regardless, they should all be boycotted, universally banned, and utterly destroyed just the same.
As I understand it, it would take something like a genetically engineered virus to alter your living DNA. That is essentially what a virus does naturally. The changes in the physical makeup of the modified food is more problematic. For example, the russet potato has been modified make a "better" french fry. The size and starch content were modified. Most fast food places use them. The fries look good, and taste okay; but, the caloric content went through the roof with the changes in the starch content.

I've been asked to do a little bit of research into people's ideas of genetically modified food. This can range from disease-resistant crops, to using genetic modification to make our tomatos redder and orangers oranger. Does all this worry you, or do you think over all it's better?Would be great...

Much of the food we have today has been genetically modified and some say labeling it as such would cause unnecessary panic, while others say GMO's are to blame for much of the health problems we have today.If foods that were genetically modified had to be labeled, would you buy them?

How many people believe they are eating Genetically Modified Food daily, living in the U.S.?I would love to start traveling
