From the post About technology. https://buddy71.wordpress.com
many think GMO is a new technology but farmers have been altering food for thousands of years. we would not be eating corn as we see it today if it were not for the Mayans who altered a grass to get corn. many of our apples and even tomatoes have been altered to be the food we see today. yes science has made it easier/faster. some of our food has been altered to make them more resistant to insects so decreasing the need for pesticides. yes we need better diversity in our crops to be overall healthier food sources (think the irish potato famine) some framers are growing apples and tomatoes that have not been grown in hundreds of years because people caved to commercialism.
so technology can be a double edge sword. but it has been humans that dictate what is to be sold and grown. it is up to use to police what technology does for us.
