    NO NO NO - there's too much research on animals that says it's not healthy - I think it may be the cause of the growing rates of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.  And while other countries around the world are banning GMOs (at least until we have trials on humans) our US government won't even require labeling of GMOs.

    This is probably the MOST IMPORTANT health issue of our time!!!

    I've written 3 hubs on the subject:

While we may not feel food shortages in the US, GMOs have brought down production costs and food prices for us and made a massive difference in feeding people elsewhere in the world. Most of the criticisms of GMOs being toxic among other things come from a poor understanding of the topic and fear mongering (much like the anti-vaccine crowd). Here's an excellent video on the topic for those that are interested:

    GMO foods start appearing in 1994. GMO plants are typically engineered for faster growth, resistant to weed killers and other pathogen, and other benefits.
    Typical GMO foods include transgenic plant products that include soybean, corn, canola, and... read more

    I don't know enough about GMO food to condemn or praise it, but we must produce more food in better and more efficient ways.  Such research is vital.
