Doctor: Dr. Owen, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
The majority of good in the U.S. is grown as genetically engineered - this includes Meats (Beef, Pork and Chicken), also this includes many fruits and especially vegatables and this is well known - but we still do not know that exactly if it is safe - but there does not seem to be any evidence that it is actually bad altough some people want you to eat 'natural' foods - well the problem is that not much real natural food exists because bugs/pests that eat the food before it is 'picked' and genetically engineered food prevents pests from destroying crops.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
