While I agree that there is plenty of corruption in the Gov't, and probably far too much undue influence by any corporation able to buy the support, I can't agree with the idea that GMO is so horrible. Essentially, we as humans, have been genetically modifying both plants and animals for as long as we have domesticated and bred many various species for many various uses, not least of which is for food.
While his genes may not have been spliced in a lab, your average ordinary beef steer (that is free range, grass fed, non-hormone injected, and not treated with antibiotics for disease) has been genetically modified through breeding programs for generations untraceable - literally for millennia. And because of this, he grows bigger, faster, and with more meat to provide. Your Japanese Kobe beef is an excellent example of how the breeding programs can create such a wonderfully sought after delicacy!
This has not produced any harm to our society or world, in fact what it does is create the ability to produce even greater quantities of food, often cheaper and with less resources than are otherwise possible. These technologies, both old and modern, have allowed countless thriving cultures and have gone a long way to alleviating hunger across the globe.
In fact, it is so incredibly likely that your very own bees have been genetically modified in some way! Honeybees have been crossbred and selectively bred, and hence genetically modified, for eons beyond memory. And, shockingly, the honey is still good and wholesome and you haven't died from it yet!
