I am a bio-technical engineer so my bias is yes you should eat genetically modified foods but i do not want anyone to answer with any bias. If you would eat genetically modified foods please tell me about it and why. Thank you

I missed the last round, but would you be alright if the foods had been modified, so for example, if a potato could have the potential to have the same nutrients as a full meal. Also if someone could comment or challenge me on this, would you serve someone genetically modified foods, like at a resturant

I have no issue with eating genetically modified foods, we already are partially , the banana for instance is a genetic copy of a line of bananas called Cavendish bananas. http://www.naturalnews.com...#

The issue I see would be diversity of a species of food, otherwise one virus could wipe out an entire species.

Reasons for voting decision: I don't think this counts as a debate. Neither side had any arguments, but then neither really had a case to argue for.

Reasons for voting decision: Um, forfeiting is problematic in this one. Also, asking questions of your opponent is what the comments section is for. In debate rounds, they are pretty much a waste of time! There's not much debating going on. Everyone loses. So I guess everyone wins, too.
