Hi thereyes you are right In fact, engineers now can manipulate the genes of living organisms which can be transformed as planned but the further effects of that are not always studied or well known to give to a plant the capability to kill the insect, engineers have to do lots of work in the lab to isolate the gene producer of the toxin and introduce it in the genome of the plant so the resulted plant is genetically modified and hence it behaves as a pesticidebut the most important question here is "are we eating pesticides" ??

Similarly some crops are 'engineered' to withstand temperature variations or extremes. By your logic we should be asking 'are we eating anti-freeze'.
