Short answer? No. GMO food is not bad for you.

The link is posted as a question, which almost always means the answer is "no".

Frankly the GMO scare is gotten over with. Mostly because there is basically no chance scientists are able to make something more dangerous than what already exists in nature. DNA is powerful but really hard to use. Even Hollywood don't bother with DNA scare stories anymore.

Gene therapy turns off severe allergies in animals and
could eventually cure humans of allergies and asthma


"A team led by Associate Professor Ray Steptoe at the UQ Diamantina Institute has been
able to ‘turn-off’ the immune response which causes allergic reaction in animals.

“When someone has an allergy or asthma flare-up, the symptoms they experience results
from immune cells reacting to protein in the allergen,” Professor Steptoe said.

“The challenge in asthma and allergies is that these immune cells, known as T-cells,
develop a form of immune ‘memory’ and become very resistant to treatments.

“We have now been able ‘wipe’ the memory of these T-cells in animals with gene therapy,
de-sensitizing the immune system so that it tolerates the protein."

Genetic enhancement will be many times more
powerful than steroids:


"Clinical trials of CRISPR gene editing, when they start this year (2017), will edit existing
cells in adults using an injection of a viral vector. It seems likely that CRISPR, or some
improved version of it, will be established to be both safe and effective in the near
future. Professor Stephen Hsu provides an analysis of the potential improvement from
genetic editing compared to steroids."

The World Anti-Doping Agency Is Cracking Down
On Gene-Editing In Sports:


"The promise of gene therapy has the potential to drastically limit the impact of human
disease by altering the make-up of the body’s cells to fight back against deadly invaders.
If used recreationally, though, gene therapy could also expand the physical limits of
human strength and endurance. Like high-tech steroids, gene therapies could one day
be a new way for athletes to dope.

Hoping to preemptively limit the consequences of the rapidly advancing field of genetic
engineering in sports, the World Anti-Doping Agency officially added genetic engineering
to its black list of banned substances and methods earlier this month. Beginning next
year, the updated list will include “gene editing agents designed to alter genome
sequences and/or the transcriptional or epigenetic regulation of gene expression.”

Genetic Engineering

I thing that the Genetic Engineering is the most important thing in present days and genetic education should be more affordable to people. Humanity must know about Crispr cause it's really revolutionary technique. I will write articles about genetics and about Crispr. and it's really monumental moments in the history of biomedical research.

Most People May Already Be Immune to CRISPR

The revolutionary gene-editing technique might not work in most humans.

"The gene-editing technology CRISPR has the potential to change everything about
medicine. With CRISPR, scientists and doctors can potentially edit a person’s genome
on the fly, fixing all manner of genetic diseases with a simple, non-invasive procedure.

At least, that’s the plan. In reality, CRISPR is pretty complicated, and any attempt to
use it in human patients inevitably leads to some complex engineering. A recent paper
from a group of Stanford researchers even found that most humans may even be
immune to CRISPR altogether."

China Has Already Gene-Edited 86 People With CRISPR:

"In the U.S., the first planned clinical trials of CRISPR gene editing in people are about
to kick off. China, meanwhile, has been racing ahead, having already used the gene-
altering tool to change the DNA of dozens of people in several clinical trials.

The Wall Street Journal reports that so far in China, at least 86 people have had their
genes edited, and there is evidence of at least 11 Chinese clinical trials using CRISPR.
One of those trials, the WSJ found, began a year earlier than previously reported,
putting the start of the first Chinese CRISPR trial in 2015.

China’s rapid advancement is the result of more relaxed regulations, and a willingness
to forge ahead with cutting-edge research despite potential unknowns and safety
concerns, which are significant. One recent paper, for example, suggested that
CRISPR could trigger an immune response in a majority of patients, which could
render potential treatments either ineffective or dangerous. China’s rapid-fire
approach has set off a biomedical duel between the U.S. and China, and sparked
concerns among Western scientists that the Chinese trials have been irresponsibly
premature."


"Chinese scientists may end up being the first to cure cancer using CRISPR, but it’s
unclear what repercussions may come with rushing through these early safety trials."

So, the countries with least concern/respect for human life will become the most
advanced in medical science, since they will experiment on humans more freely?

It depends on technology access in the country, but I am sure some of western countries do illegal experimentation - it is inevitable. Except in China with its population +- 1 mil people won't affect anything
