I will not consume genetically modified till it is proved that they do not have harmful effects on us.I'll prefer natural grown food.There are a lot of reports that the effects of genetically modified food are not known.Why gamble when you can eat food grown without these genetically modified variants?

Upon hearing this, mutant foods come to mind. I don't like eating genetically modified foods because, just by hearing it, it might make my stomach hurt or something.

In my country Genetically Modified Food is not allowed. I don't see why they should not allow this food like maize which has became scarce nowadays. They allowed Bananas in some regions and they are doing well in both rainy and dry seasons, so far no harm has been reported for those who consume the Bananas. We can not say, GMFs are not there in circulation because we don't how most foods are made and the process food go through to reach our food stores. Recently, the government had to return tons of Genetically Modified Maize to the owner country when the people were dying of hunger- so sad. The country these maize came from had no problem feeding on GMFs, I just wonder why our leaders viewed this as experimental ground and rejected the maize.

We've been eating these foods for years without realizing exactly which ones have been modified. Distributors are not required to tell us which are modified and which are not. I'm sure that some of the produce that I purchase from my grocer's are genetically modified. I've not been harmed and have yet to hear or read of humans being harmed. Until studies come out that prove these foods are detrimental to humans, I'm not going to be worrying about them. I've got a feeling that we're eating them a lot more and for a longer period of time than we think.

I automatically do not like genetically modified food but I can see there could be a need for it in the future as the population grows and food is scarce. I think all the chemicals and pollutants we now have is already changing our cell structure and also causing illnesses. I just don't see how we will stop it.

I'm not really comfortable in genetically modified food. I'm a fan in natural food in natural way. It helps my mind think of nothing but good for you.
