I don't know leia, but what research that is peer reviewed do you have stating that GMO foods aren't safe? I would like to read them because as a scientist, I haven't found any credible ones yet.

Good point bjohnson. I wonder how leia explains the fact that I work with four ultra liberal, Birkenstock wearing, useful idiots that "only eat organic," yet they get sick at a rate of 3.1 when compared to guys like me that eat what we feel like eating. How does that happen?
We in the media rarely lie to you.

That's where most big scare stories come from, like recent headlines about GM foods. GM means "genetically modified," which means scientists add genes, altering the plant's DNA, in this case to make the crop resistant to pests.

Last week, Poland joined seven other European countries in banning cultivation of GM foods.

The politicians acted because headlines screamed about how GM foods caused huge tumors in rats. The pictures of the rats are scary. Some have tumors the size of tennis...
