Do you know what you eat? Advertising campaign from Greenpeace

Greenpeace hired the design firm BBDO from Moscow to tell consumers about genetically-modified organisms. The text in the ad says:

Do you know what you eat? The DNA of genetically modified plants may contain the genes of insects, animals or even viruses. These products may potentially cause harm to your health. Look for GMD free sign on the package.

Agency: BBDO Moscow

Brand: Greenpeace

GMOs can certainly be helpful and I'm with you... if we could get some cauliflower to taste like crab or green peas to taste like grapes I'd be gobbling them up :rolleyes:

The DNA of genetically modified plants may contain the genes of insects, animals or even viruses. These products may potentially cause harm to your health.

:thoughtful: There is only a remote chance that GMOs could contain harmful genetic material because the GMO manufacturers take care not to incur peoples wrath in this way. Besides, we don't absorb large molecules when we eat. Our digestive system breaks them into tiny pieces and usually this makes them harmless. Plus, what we digest doesn't go from our blood directly into our cells so any genes we absorb are unlikely to be expressed (ie. treated as genes by our bodies) and human cells don't adopt free floating genes into our DNA so they can't be expressed that way either.

The GMOs manufacturer's know this and the lawyers know this, which is why they will never lose a court case that charges them for making harmful foods. The case we can win, and the one no-one seems to realize is that GMOs are environmental disasters waiting to happen.

It's a serious enough topic that I think deserves a new posting so watch for it.

Great pics. According to the book "The Omnivores Dilemma" as one that lives in the U.S I am corn. If we are what we eat of course. I will have the corn with a side of corn and for desert, corn. It's in every freaking thing at the store it seems.
