What are your thoughts on GMO and transgenic foods?

I found this article very interesting. I’ve heard my virology lecturer describe us as being “walking viruses”, but it didn’t occur to me that this makes us “transgenic”!

The article attempts to normalise GMO and transgenics in fish culture. There are certainly a lot of unknowns and we cannot possibly know the consequences for we have not encountered it before. I believe a precautionary principle should apply.

Have a read of this article and see what you think – see link.
