Genetically Modified Food: Panacea or Poison

The fact is, there has never been a single study on the human safety of these products. Any implication to the contrary is a pure fabrication. Make the corporate apologists produce a single study, and they can not. The important point is this. Among scientists, the scientific community is deeply divided as to whether these foods are safe or not, so the burden of proof is on industry. And so far, the corporations have failed to demonstrate the safety of these foods on humans through a single study. In the last thirty years global demand for food has doubled. In a race to feed the planet, scientists have discovered how to manipulate DNA, the blueprint of life, and produce what they claim are stronger, more disease-resistant crops. However, fears that Genetically Modified Food may not be safe for humans or the environment has sparked violent protest. Are we participating in a dangerous global nutritional experiment? This informative film helps the viewer decide if the production of genetically modified food is a panacea for world hunger or a global poison. [watch it here]

Pharmakon

It is important to note that a pharmakon is both a medicine and a poison. The cure or the cause of an illness, or both. It is said that a medicine may be a cure in the proper context of an illness that it can treat with the correct dosage. This becomes part of the set and setting of any drug, not just psychoactive ones.  It is clear that in the current idiot cycle created by our biotechnological world that pharmakon will be a word that will grow in importance soon.  There are deep issues here involved in what we define as a drug, an illness and a treatment.  Ultimately in a genetically engineered world we will come to see food as fundamental of all three.
