Your analogy is also very insufficient as there is no harm in you or you neighbors knowing what your maid does. Think of this like organic food. People began to learn what happened to their food so they trashed decades of food science for food that has been shown to not only be less healthy, but that takes more land to yield less.
I'm not going to appologise for this but you are full of shit.
THere is direct evidence on Wheat & whole grains that have been genetically modified are directly the cause of many ailments affecting North Americans & the world.
I'm not saying the goal of developing a wheat strain that improved yeild , that started in the 60's & giving it to the world to fight hunger wasn't a nobel idea...but to do thousands of genetic modifications to increase seed pod size, then see the plants colapse before harvest becasue the stalk couldn't suppor the weight , so they modified the stem to give us a 14 inch high plant almsot doubling yeild for the same plot of land ...& let us not mention the huge increase in artificial fertilizer & oil to power the equipmewnt to do so.
Witout any testing on humans to see if any of these modifications were harmful .so snce the 80's where it was "GIVE UP THE FAT.... EAT MORE WHEAT & WHOLE GRAINS"
And what have we gotten for this 30 year experiment.
Obesity at the highest level in human history, affecting every income bracket, every nationality, both sexes.
Diabetes going from 6% to 22% in our population
Increases in Colitus. ulcers, irritible bowel syndrom, gluten alergies exploding through our population & now scientists are figuring out the changes are not all good at all !
So before you go spouting bullshit , remember there are some of us who are dealing with health problems directly related to genetically modified wheat .
ANd I am one of them
& the nutritionists, doctors , specialists who have been treating me have made a major difference in my life...not by prescribing lots of drugs...but by simply teaching me about what is being learned & how simple it is to be healthy, by simply no longer eating that stuff .
And there are lots of other grains & seeds that can be safely eaten...& boy's & girls, just because it isn't affecting you now, doesn't mean it won't affect you when you get older.
That is what happened to me & when your food starts poisoning you, yer not going to like it very much & the so called factory farming methods that need genetically modified foods to make their profits ain't going to do you any good with their cheap production cost ... cause you can't eat it.
Look at the problems coming from feed lot meats, animals constantly fed growth hormons, antibiotics to keep them alive the same type of food (usually genetically modified grain) look at the suffering they do, stomach & digestive problems where pasture, grass fed beef doesn't have that , the difference in free range eggs & chicken, you can actually see the difference in the color of the egg yolk, the consistency of the egg white, the color & taste of the chicken or turkey is not slightly different, it is completely different !
CarmaroH ...I may not be as familiar as you are with your system of Government, & even though I know what the definition of a facist state is & you ignore that definition as per any dictionary.
When it comes to genetically modified foods we are setting ourselves up for a massive failure !
