While like Dave I think it would be nice if Native Foods took the initiative to drop their self imposed ban on GMOs and even begin to educate customers about the environmental and potential health benefits, I am at least glad that this post and the past post Vegans Who Support GMO's (Say What?) both have given me glimmer of hope for a more rational discussion on the matter. If they could get past the manufactured fear and myths then the promise of GM technology should be appealing to the average customer of a shop such as Native Cafe, those concerned about the environment or whole are vegan. In addition to the link Dave provided I would suggest interested people, vegans especially, read these blogs by vegans who have come out against the fear mongering about GMOs Frankenfood Fears http://skepticalvegan.wordpress.com/2011/09/17/frankenfood-fears/ Bt Cotton, Farmer Suicides, and Fluffy Thinking http://skepticalvegan.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/bt-cotton-farmer-suicides-and-fluffy-thinking/ The IRRI – Conducting Genetic Modification We Can All Support http://veganskeptic.blogspot.com/2011/10/irri-conducting-genetic-modification-we.html

If only the public could get past some of their irrational fears then genetic engineering could save the Cavandish banana while making it into a vaccine against deadly disease(actual research has been done into this).
