Why are you so convincing, OMINOUS LOOKING FRUIT?

The science is pretty clear that GMO’s are as safe as all the other artificially modified fruit out there, like bananas.

Things got heated at our recent Skeptics In The Pub at which we addressed the controversy over GMOs. One woman called me “reckless” and “wildly irresponsible” for suggesting that organic crops used pesticides. We followed this with a calm conversation about the difference between commercial organic farming and gardening. Science distinctly shows that GMO crops are the same in nutrition and safety as traditional and organic crops.

Lastly, I hate when they call it Franken-Food. What they really mean to call it is Frankens-Monster-Food.
