I believe our well intentioned, "long term thinking," in this case, has further opened the door to mankind's demise with genetically altered food. I further believe the proponents have no idea what the outcome of this course will be with regard to ongoing health. Talk about an "experiment" with our future. This entire project gets "the cake" for wrecklessness with America's health future.
