The title of this article is a paraphrase of a TV commercial from the 70's. A woman depicting Mother Nature is shown sampling what she thinks is her "rich, creamery butter", and when told it is actually margarine, she remarks in an angry tone, "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature!" She was understandably upset... and so am I. And it's about something far worse than butter or margarine; something that could jeopardize human existence. I'm speaking of genetically engineered food (also known as GMO's - Genetically Modified Organisms).

Since the early 90's, agribusiness has been converting a large portion of our naturally grown food supply to one that is derived from genetically modified seeds. Some of these crops include corn, soybeans, potatoes and tomatoes, and approximately 60% of processed foods contain GMO's.
