Most of the wheat and corn and derivatives are GMO about 85% in the US used for processed food.

Starred and flagged. I grow my own herbs and some of my own veggies, planning on growing more veg and fruit next year. Normally, I am not opposed to genetic experimentation, research, and development, but there are boundaries that really should not be crossed.
Adding genes from one plant to another via research does not bother me. Because in some ways, we have been doing it for thousands of years, via hybrids and natual mutation preservation. But still, nothing completely against the natural order, since plants are part of the same kingdom.
It's when you start crossing kingdom barriers, such as adding animal genes to plants, or fungus genes to animals, that I object to. And when it comes to animals, I'm even more stricter and opposed to GM, even if genes are added from other animals. Animals are more complex organisms than plants.
Flouride in the water never bothered me much, but GMO does. They are pushing these food crops on people without doing their homework on health, safety, and long term consequences. That's a big no from me.
