Presently your local grocery store is stocked full of genetically modified food. Chances are every single banana you've ever eaten in your life was a clone of the same plant, which itself was a genetically adapted hybrid. There is no danger from GM foods. I don't know if the obstruction from Europe to allowing African countries to grow GM grains is genuienly a good-will reaction of fear or instead a homeland agricultural protectionist scheme, but if we can perhaps help feed millions of people starving around the world there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn't try.
