Are we asking the right questions? It’s true that there’s little scientific evidence to suggest that any specific gene-edited GMOs in use are more toxic than their selectively-bred counterparts. (So far … but even science makes mistakes; remember Thalidomide.) However, perhaps the real question is not whether we *can* do it, but whether we *should*? Should we try to feed more people, when abundant scientific evidence shows us that life always takes up all the available space, and we’re already looking at global biome extinction and destabilization due to demands arguably imposed by overpopulation? Should we try to create more food when we already waste half the food we create today, arguably enough to feed all the starving mouths? Regardless of the much discussed red-herring of their apparent nutritional safety, GMOs seem to be as much about generating profit for powerful vested interests as serving any real long-term global human interest.
