One would only have to look to GMO's to realize, that genetic engineering in the hands of man\mankind is like giving a five year old a shotgun and sending him out to play with other kids.
Genetic engineering in foods? Does that include cross-pollinating, selective breeding or any of the other things humans have done to turn barely palatable foods into ones that are better for us? Or is it only magic-science GM?
