Don’t kill the messenger:
Since our first episode, you’ve begged us to cover Genetically Modified Organisms, or GMOs. Honestly, I often can’t tell if those of you who are asking us to do this expect us to tell you’re they’re awesome of the worst thing to happen to humanity. Ever. This is one of those topics people feel so passionately about, that I’m guaranteed to make a lot of you angry, no matter what I say.
But we never let that stop us. GMOs are the topic of this week’s Healthcare Triage.
