It's not about empowering, it's about being able to charge more for your "non-GMO" foods by feeding into a rather stupid scare. Here's a list of common GMO foods:

1. Corn, yellow corn, all of it.
2. Banana, yes, all bananas.
3. Cows, all cows, they are all genetically modified.

I know there's a lot more but those are the three big ones the lay people always forget. We made those foods by genetically modifying existing organisms a long time ago, using a method called breeding. That's why the cow's physiology is such a mess, we didn't know what we were doing, now we do.
