I agree with this, its way more easier to put a bottle in an infant's mouth or place the plate in front of them and let them have finger food than it is to have a child lay still for a shot. Not to mention the pain the child would go through. Even if you gave a sleeping infant a shot, the child wouldn't be asleep for long and would soon wake up screaming. (my daughter is getting her teeth in, and doesn't like people prodding her mouth, so when we're not using a bottle, it's best to just let her use her hands (for now))
I don't see where the organic comes in at but maybe I missed something. Also would someone (besides junsu as he only asked where I got that) please let me know if I got the discussion correct in my previous post.
As for the myst comment.. I'm not sure I don't think so tbh but we might and I probably just hadn't heard of it -,-
Interesting argument regarding vaccinations; wouldn't that lead to new strains being developed faster since everyone has the vaccine?
Before I start my opinion, my interest in this topic stems from my interest in health. Since college I have been looking for the "perfect" diet, with foods that I love to eat and can do everyday..... blah blah blah..... anywho, I have read many books on diet and nutrition and I recently got a book from the library called, "debating GM foods". It was a compilation of arguments from both sides and I got through a few. It was SOOO interesting. I have also taken Sociology (off-topic) but I think it helps here since everything depends on the situation. Debating GM foods is a hefty topic and without much research, I don't feel super comfortable putting my foot down, but from what I have learned so far here is my opinion:
Could help impoverished people obtain vitamins necessary to avoid silly diseases (like scurvy)
Could help the general population obtain vitamins necessary! Look at the obesity in America; hardly anyone is eating fruits and veggies anymore with the advent of all the processed foods; I was one of them. It's hard to give up delicious food that is supposedly "healthy" for some carrot Lol.
Overall: just an easier way for people to obtain nutrients deemed "important" in food
According to one argument I read, there was this thing called "golden rice" that was developed to help deliver vitamin C to impoverished people in Asian countries (since rice is a staple in their diet and is cheap as well) Some problems with it though is that:
~ one would have to eat 1-2 pounds of rice (not sure the number, but it was ridiculously huge) to get the effect of eating one orange
~ The GM food industry would have COMPLETE control over the food supply; I am all for science, but it goes too far a lot of the time
"Real" food will probably always be better for you.
~ As mother nature intended haha. The whole organic thing is interesting; even people who CAN afford to go organic, don't since it is more costly. I do believe there are many health benefits though. As a poor student, I cannot afford it yet, but it is something I am willing to invest time into.
This is a pretty interesting topic. Any other opinions? I love hearing new ones
