Due to the transgene technology, today there are more transgene food. And I have read some arguments to this kind of food. Some said that it is harmful for our health. And some said that this is a food improvement and the transgene will not be harmful for us. What do you think?

I looked up transgene, and I am not sure, but it sounds like GMO and yes it is harmful to us, and our bodies are not made to eat food like this.

No what is sad is our government will shut down a raw/organic farm because it is "harmful" only because people are careless and want their food to last forever, but allow chemicals in our food that causes cancer and other health issues because it can last forever..

i also think that it could not make any danger for health as i does not affect our gene ,but trans gene technology help us a lot in making food better

This technology really improves the food quality, but I am not sure whether it will have a negative effect on us or not.

It is hard to say, for it is a new thing. Usually a new thing which should be strictly tested then be decided as a food material. But now we become the white mouse to test the trangene food. I am not sure whether the trangene food is good for people, but I will not take it if I know it is trangene food.

Since it is a new thing, perhaps we shall judge it after a long time.

there are possibilities have some adverse effects of mutation of genes if you consume transgenic food for long duration regularly. if it is consumed for short duration or with some interval the changes of mutation are less.

The problem is we don't really know which food is transgenic or not. Some may not be written down.

As through my research I don't know if it is scary but when I saw the images it is scary one. While the people who are eating transgenic or modified food are like zombies. I think we should be aware of this food because we don't know if we already eaten it. I saw one label of bottled salad dressing that has a modified soya beans oil and this is very alarming. But I don't know if it is really safe maybe a little more studies to clear out some worries in my mind.

Youless, until now i am still not sure how safe to consume them daily. What i do is, we try to eat less on those foods. We buy and eat more on fresh fruits and vegetables, since it is more healthy that way. Since the cost of medical fees is very expensive nowadays, we try to eat more healthily. It is better to stay health as much as we can.

It sounds like that the customers do not really accept to the transgene food yet.

Hello youless I think that I have concerns about eating the transgene food. I am not so sure that the transgene food is an improvement to our health. I prefer the all natural foods. Peace. I love the world!!
