These kinds of posts used to be the meat and potatoes (no pun intended) of my blog. Now I focus more on medical school and obstetrics, but I really couldn’t let this pass.
I don’t have the time to go into it in detail now, but apparently GMOs (genetically modified foods) are bad for us, and the companies like Monsanto who did the initial research thought we wouldn’t want us to know about the organ damage produced in rats who ate their GMO corn for only 90 days.
Maybe we might have wanted to know this before the majority of our corn grown in the US was GMO corn. Or, when we agreed we really don’t need GMO status on food labels.
If anyone wants to argue with me about how only non-science knee jerk types are interested in more research and disclosure on GMO foods, bring it on. If anyone wants to argue about crop yields and starving babies in third world countries…bring it. I had my fluff day off yesterday.
