Seattle Times letters to the editor

Frankenfoods may be cheaper but not safer

Let the consumer make the choice

Human digestive systems have developed over tens of thousands of years. Exposing them to totally new genetically modified foods is a risk we do not need to take. We have not done sufficient testing of these new “Frankenfoods.”

We have enough mysterious illnesses, such as Autism, Parkinsons, Altzheimers and cancer, for which we don’t know the exact causes. At least, let the consumer make the choice. Those who wish to choose the GMO foods, if they are cheaper, may still do so.
