I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.

Most articles on genetically modified foods take an extreme stance - either GMOs are going to decimate our food and health or they are the best thing to happen to food since the Agricultural Revolution itself.
This eye-opening article in the New York Times on the benefits of rice modified to produce beta carotene - a vitamin A source - is informative and thoughtful. If GMOs can improve nutritional outcomes across the world without falling to the power of big biotechnology companies, are they still the enemy that so many see them as? Or could they be lifesaving tools?

Cooool.
