Are GMO foods the savior of mankind, or is it just technology out of control?

Latest news from the genetic engineers is they want to create "meat" in big vats, using bioengineering, not animals. Good news for the animals and bad news for us?

There is no accredited concrete proof GM crops/foods are unhealthy, in fact more people have died eating organic foods than GM foods...

Please go through the following thread here on C-D:

I never said there was anything unhealthy about artificial meat or GMO food. I simply asked if this is the direction we want to go.

Put it this way - would you eat the artificial meat?

I can put it another way - is Soylent Green in our future?

Your statement is ludicrous, no soylent green is not in our future...

Thorn rushes to stop him, but arrives too late, and is mesmerized by the euthanasia process's visual and musical montage – a display of forests, wild animals, rivers, and ocean life, now extinct. Under the influence of a lethal drug, Roth tells Thorn his discovery and begs him to expose the truth. To this end, Thorn stows himself aboard a garbage truck to the disposal-center, where he sees human corpses converted into Soylent Green. Returning to make his report, he is ambushed by Fielding and others.
Soylent Green - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As I said when this was news over 2 years ago I'll eat synthetic hamburger and steaks...

Are there any other choices, or are anti-GMO freaks just out of control?

Seriously - GMOs are neither of those things. Not even close.

Troll unmasked.

I eat GM products as do we all , however being a sci-fi buff the thought has occurred to me that the possibility may come when these GM foods will dictate how we think..Yeah i know just sci-fi
As for the artificial meat? you wont be able to tell the difference from a MacDonalds burger
