ANSWER #7 of 7

For me personally, I just think we dont know as much as nature. Organisms are hugely complex, and messing around with the genetics of food may have unexpected consequences. Studies I have read have talked about tissue hypotrophy and weakened immune systems in rats feed on a GM diet. Many GM crops are resistant to bugs as they produce toxins, and this could be potentially harmful both for people and for ecosystems. GM food is not exactly my area of expertise, but I think it could be a lot of risk for something which isnt necessary. Im not anti GM in general, I work in a lab where we deal with genetically modified animals frequently.
