there is big difference, if you use "natural" (human helped) selection or put some deep ocean fish gene into tomato. there can be unexpected side effects.
fruit in the wild what i would prefer any day before domestic counterpart - wild strawberry, more sweet, more tasty, richer with vitamins, it is small tho.

yeap, exactly. i love the man, but he's really missing the point on this one. science and technology help us all survive in the modern world, but not all advances are painless.

for example-- many of the preservatives in food we've been using and building materials in our homes are in fact toxic. they significantly increase risk of cancer and other health problems, and therefore have a high end cost for the individual and for society. gene-spliced GMO stuff just might, too. there's still a lot of science debate on it...

You think GMO are bad, but no study tell that in over 30 years of research! So, you can still beleive GMO are bad without any proof of it because it's new, you only express the kinda fear of the unknown Neil talk about! Long live technology advancement!

The Earth was also flat for a long time (more than 30 years) and suddenly became round.

@shawouin,
no, wrong. GMO crops are apparently harmless for human consumption, but it's the side-issues that are being debated right now, such as contamination of non-GMO strains, environmental effects, lack of regulation and labeling, etc.

also, since many GMO crops are engineered to thrive in the presence of pesticides like "roundup," this naturally encourages factory farming to go heavy on such pesticides. which gets transmitted to the consumer, you know.

He's EXACTLY right. Humans genetically selected, agrew and breed almost everything we eat today. Today they do in labs the same as nature does through millions of cycles of random errors in gene duplication.
