The genetic engineering debate is heating up at the moment. Good to see. Looks as if Monsanto has shot itself in the foot big time with this one. When will they learn? (ever?)
Dr Quantum feels that there is undoubtedly a place for genetic engineering, however the unseemly haste with which we have rushed into playing around with the biological code of life has not been too cool. Just look at the fine mess Monsanto has gotten us into. Mike Adams (AKA The Health Ranger) tells it like it is:
(NaturalNews) The GMO debate is over. There is no longer any legitimate, scientific defense of growing GM crops for human consumption. The only people still clinging to the outmoded myth that “GMOs are safe” are scientific mercenaries with financial ties to Monsanto and the biotech industry.
I seem to remember one of the saner scientists Dr Mae Wan Ho – from the UK – being a vocal outspoken opponent of the cowboyism practiced by Monsanto as early as the late 20th Century. She was a special adviser to the United Nations on Genetic Engineering. Obviously whatever it was she was saying by way of caution was insufficient to halt the Monsanto juggernaut. Well . . .everybody’s gotta learn sometime.
