I have the same feeling about politicians as most people have about chemicals. And mine is the more justified fear.

GM politicians?....maybe thats why I cant find ANYONE on EITHER side of the aisle thats worth a damn for voting for every 4 yrs anymore......LOL!!!!!!!!!....P.S.- Is it possible to modify them back into what they are supposed to be? Servants, ambassadors, and representatives of the people & for the people? Maybe...but just like evolution (which I will state right here right now, I am NOT a subscriber of), it might take a few million yrs.....ROFLMMFAO!!!!
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...
