Genetically Engineered food, is cheaper and doesnt rot as easily. However, I have to say Organic taste so much better. Is genetically Engineered food bad? Should the government allow it? I know the we have lots of genetically engineered food in Canada. Are they bad for health?

I would like to say that I don't personally like genetically engineered food, but how can I say no if I see all the hunger in people like in Africa. If the tests are conclusive, and everything is safe, then we should have the means to ship these food to the people who need it most. Sorry GeminiBunniee, I seem to have strayed a bit from your topic.

No problem. You bring up an interesting point. But even with a surplus of food here in Canada... I dont see much going over to Africa to help hungry children. However, with further research into the area, there just might be a solution to global hunger issue. Though for the time being.... ....financial and medical are the only things going over to Africa... as far as i can tell.

I would like to see further research on this topic. Especially regarding the vitamin and mineral content. I just can't imagine genetically engineered foods having the same content as organically grown foods. I also am a little old school and think that it's very possible that even if the foods show the same content it may not be as easily absorbed into our all natural bodies.....

Well... I know the milk here in canada have vitamin D added to increase the calcium intake. But do those work?....im not sure. I have heard of people injecting fish genes into tomatoes to keep them fresh. I don't see how that's good for tomatoes....or human...imagine eating that.
