- Luscious red-ripe tomatoes, picture perfect ears of corn, spotless potatoes, high-yielding soy, acres and acres of wheat, fluffy-white cotton laden trees; all disease and pest resistant, drought-tolerant and inexpensive. What a grand vision of flawless and abundant crops. It’s not a vision, it is reality- with a little help from GMO’s. But is it really so. This wonderful actuality is in fact an illusory fallacy. Genetically modified food production is based on practices that are not natural and to an extent unethical....   [tags: Genetically modified food]
