DNA, the genetic material contained in every living thing known to science, GMO or otherwise.

DNA is short for Deoxyribonucleic acid, and as we all know acid is slang for a narcotic.

Thus, anyone who consumes DNA is a junkie.

The science is irrefutable

This is the same "public" who want to repeal women's suffrage in an effort to "help" them, who once put hundred of names on a petition to ban Dihydrogen Monoxide and other stupid shit.

I thank God, every day, we don't live in a democracy.

In all fairness, people get bombarded with a tonne of data that the really do not understand and have little use for anyway. The problem begins when people start forming opinions on these snippets of misunderstood information.

Which is why, for the sake of humanity and as an act of kindness, people should be able to rid themselves of their suffrage at will.

Penn & Teller's "Bull$hit" was a great show.

They also had great episodes on the war on drugs, end of the world, and all other sorts of stuff

I'd prefer that labels ONLY include product name, product description 4 words or less (ex Cold/Flu Pills or Canned Corn or Ham), weight/volume and price. Makes me a better consumer and I don't waste time thinking.

I think the genome sequencing should be printed on the labels, and this information should be posted on the menus at fast food restaurants.

That's something I could rally behind. Get rid of pennies. All electrical wiring and pipes must be removed from homes worldwide. Do it for the children. After all, how many children have died from sticking a fork into an electrical outlet or from licking live wires?

True, but elected representatives are barely better, especially when it comes to science or technical topics.

That's how we get things like barrel shrouds and bayonet lugs banned.

As a teacher of the biological sciences I feel bad.

I can not imagine how many DNA molecules I have drawn on the board; The shape of a nucleotide, the TAGC sequence, protein synthesis, Chromosome behavior during mitosis and meiosis, etc etc. They do worksheets, I make them draw it, we build models of it, they watch videos of it, we extract DNA, all for nothing.

That's actually a great point.

If everything you know about life is from CSI and L&O then you probably only associate DNA with blood and semen.

Copper is more toxic to invertebrates.
