Dani Saade's insight:

If researches have discover that GMOs are harmful for us, why to continue researching on them? Is that really a solution for starving? I agree that the GMOs should be regulated, at least let us know what we are eating therefore we will decide if we want to buy it or not, just as junk food: of course it’s not healthy at all to eat junk food, but if we know that it is dangerous, the responsibility of eating it is ours.
