Once again, the answer is, in general, yes.
That’s a good article, and I highly recommend reading it. It’s also worth bearing in mind that the following food crops are genetically modified from their wild cousins:
And…you know what? Every single domesticated food crop we eat is genetically distinct from its wild cousin. We began modifying DNA the moment we invented agriculture, which was about 10,000 years ago, give or take a few centuries. This applies to animals as well as plants, and if you doubt me, try to make a pet of a wolf rather than a beagle.
We really need to grow the fuck up. Simply because something has had its DNA tinkered with in a lab does not make it any worse (or better), than something that had its DNA tinkered with slowly over the course of decades/centuries.
We have nine billion people to feed. We can all make snarky little comments about how there should be fewer people, but unless you’re willing to eat a bullet, you can shut the fuck up, and just eat some GMO food instead. It really can save humanity.
