    Default Neil DeGrasse Tyson Annihilates Anti-GMO Argument

    No author (Video)

    There has been a considerable amount of discussion and debate regarding the safety of genetically modified food. Though the topic has been researched over and over again, there isn’t evidence that eating conventional produce will cause disease, despite whatever the scientifically-illiterate Food Babe has to say. In fact, over 2000 studies have found GM food to be perfectly safe. Genetic modification is simply a tool, and like all tools, it's how you use it that matters.
    Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson takes down the anti-GMO argument swiftly and deftly, in a way that only he can.

    This is so disappointing, coming from this world famous scientist. I think we all know that 'selective breeding' and hybridization are not the same as genetic modification.

    Yes, this may have been the video I've seen earlier, and it was deeply disappointing.

    Well, Dr. Tyson may not be the voice of credibility, given his recent troubles. One of his former female college professors and his female assistant have accused him of alleged sexual misconduct. He denies both their allegations. However, his TV show "Cosmos," which was due to begin its 2nd season on March 3 on National Geographic and FOX has been canceled until the networks can complete their investigations. Enough said!

    My idol's been smashed! This is really hurtful. I wish I could suggest that the behavior is confined to men with celebrity status, but sadly, I know that's not the case.
