Why is it that we don't eat genetically modified food? Let's discuss just one of the many reasons of what occurs when we modify any type of living organism. What would happen if you were to modify chromosomes in humans? Or what if a human has extra chromosomes? If a human has more than 46 chromosomes, this leads to physical and mental disabilities.
Here is an interesting note, ancient wheat, (the kind of grain that they found in Ötzi the Iceman, Europe’s oldest mummy, dating back to 3,300 B.C.) had ONLY 14 chromosomes. It was very simple and non-genetically modified. The wheat of today has 42 chromosomes! If the addition of chromosomes causes mental and physical disabilities, who will become mentally and physically disabled, the wheat, or the human eating the modern wheat? Something to think about.
