Dangers of Genetic Engineering in Agriculture

I don't usually stray from family topics, but I think this is worth posting. Genetically modified foods ARE NOT the same thing as hybridized foods (or foods perfected through combining different strains of plants during pollination). Genetically modified foods are a product of changing and manipulating the actual DNA of a plant. Please be informed. The same company that is responsible for spreading the use of GMOs is the same company that produced: Agent Orange, DDT, and RBGST. They are also responsible for 150 "superfund" sites (chemically polluted and hazardous waste areas) around the country.Do i trust them when they say GMOs are safe? No way!
