What do NoCal hounds think of genetically engineered food?

Brandon Nelson | Jan 21, 200103:09 AM


I don't often play on Chowhounds other message boards, I'm sort of a homer. But theres a thread that really lit a fire under me. A discussion about genetically modified crops.

My opinion, yellow light, proceed with caution. We don't have generations worth of data on this stuff. And ...well.... why are those who are producing it so afraid to label it?

Would I buy it? No. My choice as a consumer. Would I ban it? No. I think that the directions of the research show some promise.

Heres an issue I have never read about. The current market values the appearance and shelf life of its product more than taste and freshness. I'm not sure I want them working on a peach that can withstand 2 weeks at room temperature, but has the taste and texture of sawdust.

Am I alone here? Just a little "Chow for Thought".
