This is as close to a political argument this site will ever publish. Enjoy!

Why are GMOs bad? They aren’t. They just aren’t, not intrinsically, and certainly not for your health. We’ve been eating them for decades with no ill effects, which makes sense, because a genetically modified organism is simply an organism, like every other organism, produces hundreds of thousands of proteins, but one or two of them are proteins that were chosen specifically by humans.

Just because an ignorant definition of GMO (Genetic Modified Organism) makes your skin craw, doesn’t mean that they are bad for you! 90% of the public doesn’t even know what a GMO is!

Rant over. Educate yourself, below! Thank you, SciShow.
