Ok lets take fen-fen
You are morbidly obese and have tried other methods...
A - Die of obesity
B - take fen-fen in the hopes that you avoid the other symptoms?
HMMMMMMMM....death or maybe the avoidance of death
The fen-fen issue was that taken TOGETHER they provided for weight loss.
The drugs were individually passed by the FDA THEN drug interaction issue became the problem
The problem is that people that were not obese were taking the drug becuase it was easy, but then the risks outran the benefits - maybe a ruined heart for 20 pounds weight loss (and still people thought it was worth the risk!!)
People have died from eating grapefruits and certain medicines...you do not hear the cry to ban all grapefruits or to have grapefruits FDA approved do you?
Again it is a matter of risk.
Here in the U.S. we have the ability to not buy GMO if we dont need to.
However the golden grain foods will save millions of lives.
Chance at life with maybe some other issues down the road
The local "healthfood" store still sells food that is not "organically" grown becuase for some food types the organic version is so high in cost no will buy it
The article is all about risks. GMO foods have a risk associated with them so do other foods, like grapefruits..
