What gets me about the whole genetically-modified paranoia is that the regular
wheat and corn, and everything else that is farmed, has been modified by human
behavior. Corn started out as a grass with a low yield; yet over the course of
human history, we selectly choose to plant seeds that resulted in our current
corn on the cob. The difference is that we did not do it in a lab over a short
decade, instead we took thousands of years to do it--nevertheless, we modified
the genetics of the current corn plant long before we understood genetics. Everything that you buy in the grocery store has been genetically modified long before Monsanto was a glimmer in a caveman's eyes.
