Genetically-altered foods could possibly help us reduce our destructive impact on the rest of the planet, but (as you have already guessed), it’s going to need a global mind-change before people accept the fact that we MUST stabilize our population (and therefore our food production).

Until this happens, I’m afraid that genetically-altered foods are simply going to continue the food race, giving us a new “win” in food production, which will be answered by another “win” in population growth.
