  • For those who say "we've been genetically modifying things for years!", you should understand there is a major difference between the traditional/natural way of creating hybrids, and "genetic engineering"

    Genetic engineering is the combining of DNA from different species and   can only be done in the laboratory. Traditional plant and animal   breeding stay within the species to get the desired result.
    If you do any research on this you will become very nervous about the ramifications.
    Here's the thing, once a plant is "genetically engineered", it can cross pollinate and spread it's altered genes to other normal strains of plants. Already Monsanto is suing farmers for having plants with their genes growing on their property when they don't have a contract for  using their seeds {yes you sign a contract to use their seed} but it is because the crops of their neighbors contaminated their crops via pollen. 
    It's no better to be safe than sorry....
