On Mother’s Day of this year my husband took my daughter Claire and me out to dinner, which I was definitely happy about. Cooking dinner day after day is often a trying experience for me, though I honor it as part of my contribution to the family.
We went to the usual Japanese restaurant because it’s the only place Claire truly enjoys eating out. As my husband and I dined on sushi, Claire dove into her favorites – white rice, dumplings, edamame and miso soup. She expressed her enthusiastic delight in the tasty nature of the food, a big smile on her sweet face, which made me very happy – that is until I began my investigation into genetically modified foods the following day.

I am not a science experiment
I am shocked, outraged and frightened
About the truth of genetically modified food
Food my child has ingested
Food that hasn’t been long-term tested
To be safe for human consumption
It’s a no-win situation
That is poisoning our nation
And the biotech companies don’t care
Preferring we be unaware
