In my never-to-be-humble opinion, most people are prone to knee-jerk reactions and will believe and repeat, reblog, repost, Tweet, and share nearly anything without fact-checking. A good example of this is the ridiculous but staunch belief by some that jet-airplane contrails are actually “chemtrails”— a government plot to make people stupid. My reply is that most of the people in government are already too stupid to devise such a plot (sic).
Genetically Modified Organisms, (GMOs) is a huge controversy. People rant and rave about them without knowing the facts.
There may be no harm to the actual food. (scientificamerican.com/article/why-people-oppose-gmos-even-though-science-says-they-are-safe). Research has shown that many GMO practices are harmless and don’t change the nutritional value at all. We’ve been genetically modifying our food since ancient times but without the help of modern science.
