Fear Sells, Why You Shouldn’t Buy It When It Comes To GMOs

FORBES

/ July 28, 2016 /

While riding a roller coaster with my daughter at Six Flags this summer, I was reminded of one constant as she screamed for more. Fear sells, even the illusion of fear. As a father I can hold her hand to remind her how safe she is. As she grows older I won’t always be there for her, so I hope to leave her with the skills needed to identify when someone is just selling the illusion of fear.

My children are fortunate enough to exist at a time when the human food supply is safer and more nutritious than it has ever been in human history. Unfortunately, some companies, in order to try to differentiate their products in a saturated market, have resorted to ad campaigns that sell the fear of ingredients originating from genetically engineered crops. They insinuate that our food supply is not actually safe, and their more “pure” ingredients are giving consumers a false sense of what is really healthy.
