Rational acquaintances of mine often argue that gmos haven’t been proven to be bad for us, so it’s anti-science to want to label (not ban) them. I respond: cell phones weren’t, and now they are. Asbestos wasn’t, and now it is.
The burden of proof should be on the companies with the new products, not We the People, used as guinea pigs.
Hell, back in the day,
“in The Wizard of Oz and White Christmas, along with many other films, the fake snow used was Asbestos.”
Now we know it’s lethal. ~ Waylon Lewis
