interesting that you thought I would not like your answers. I actually agree with a lot of what you said and disagree with some of it. And the fact that people don't talk about this issue nearly as much as I would have hoped is by far the greatest concern to me. As people respectfully disagree and engage in dialogue they learn new things and sometimes very important things.
I also think that labeling would seem fine because I believe in empowering consumers.
I do avoid GMO's for the most part but am not nearly as careful about it as about avoiding sugar or wheat because I consider the danger less (it's just that wheat and sugar have to be labeled).
I don't honestly know if GMO's are necessary to support current world population, but if they are then having GMO's as one option for some countries may be a good idea if they are sufficiently tested for safety.
I agree that natural is not always healthy, in fact most toxins are natural, it is often the concentration of toxins through processing that is dangerous. Even water is toxic in very high doses to the human body.
Whether GMO's have been sufficiently scientifically tested by unbiased scientists (who don't have a financial or other interest in the outcome) is a matter of much debate. I have my doubts.
I agree that fear of things we can't pronounce, including processed foods is not rational. The question to me is more if "processed foods" are indeed foods or just food-like substances that have their uses but should not be consumed because our bodies don't recognize them as food.
On the sodium issue I agree that we all need to be careful to match our bodies need to our consumption. Being on a low-carb diet I require about 2 extra grams of salt per day so I need to make sure I get enough or will get muscle cramps.
And of course I agree, homemade is almost always better.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.
