I am interested to know what people think about how KRAFT uses untested GE crops to make their products. Found it on a protest site with flash.

Most of the brands use GE food. I think...

Just because it is GE doesn't mean it is unhealthy. It is one of those things that people just don't want to accept..

For the naturally unhealthy things- we are adapted for naturally unhealthy foods,
For GEial unhealthiness- we may or may not be adapted to these.
So, GE is riscky, but hey airKRAFTs are risky too, so are many non-lifesaving things. So, we should not completely ban GE, and like aircraft safety research , we should make it intense the safety reseach.

You are right, numbers. But if it has been aproved by the government, than it is supposed that it is safe and we can eat it, no?
By the way it is nice to see you posting on th forum again...
