And that is an opinion that may or may not be valid but you seem really convinced it's true. I don't know but I doubt it's that simple. We eat an awful lot of junk with little to no GM ingredients. BTW the world had worse flu epidemics before any of the 'good' OR 'bad' food even existed. Perhaps history is of no interest.
We in the media rarely lie to you.

But that leaves plenty of room to take things wildly out of context.

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...
