Bonus Quotation of the Day…

in Cleaned by Capitalism, Food and Drink, Myths and Fallacies

is from Tyler Cowen’s excellent lunchtime address today at the 15th annual IHS/Mercatus Center Annual Retreat in Scottsdale, AZ:

Many people on the left are concerned about GMF’s – otherwise known as ‘food.’

Nearly all food consumed today is the result of genetic modifications by humans.  If you believe it to be inherently unsafe to dine on genetically modified vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy products, and meats, then you believe it to be inherently unsafe to dine on practically everything that you dine on.  So you might want to eat only salt, for I don’t believe that salt has been genetically modified.
