  • we are GMO'ing plants for 10.000 years now. corn, you know corn? corn is made by humans, not by nature. thousands of years of crossing plant species on human farms has created corn, as well as edible bananas. until recently farmers had to cross plant species to make better edible food which was more nutritious and can withstand diseases. but now recently (relatively speaking) scientists found a way to do it in laboratories. how awesome is that? only one thing to worry about, big corporations can use this very technology to make plants infertile, so that you can't use the seeds of the former plant to plant the next, thus forcing us to buy seeds from corporations, and so they can gain a monopoly on food production. this is the cancerous corporatocracy which we live in today. taking something good, and making it about personal gain.

  • Genetically modified food is often larger than regular food, so the portions can sometimes be split among more than 1 person. Have you bought a "giant" (large) orange and found yourself unable to finish it? It's like that.

    I don't know. That's just one answer to this.
