Many people oppose genetically modified foods, but others, like NC State University’s Arthur Weissinger, modify foods to improve the health of those eating the foods. One of the major issues surrounding the movement is the lack of trust between the biotechnology industry and consumers who believe the industry is ultimately out to make a profit, not make lives better. Many are also afraid that the lack of regulation could cause health and environmental disasters and affect biodiversity, fragile communities, and the control of the food supply.
