The subject of GMO foods is one I stayed away from for a long time. Quite honestly, I thought the whole hysteria about GMO was a bit of a tempest in a teapot. After all, I reasoned, we’ve been playing around with mixing genes for a long time — that’s why we have hybrid plants and 184 different breeds of dogs in the American Kennel Club. What’s the big deal? If you can genetically modify some types of rice so that they have more protein, why would that be a bad thing?
