That's why people say I should be in involved in it- there are so many ethical issues that arise when altering DNA. Like the vaccines in Bananas that they wanted to ship to Africa. It's only good if you eat the exact right amount of bananas...

Monsanto has WAY worse stuff going on than anybody in the media is aware of. They had one grass seed that would emit a pollen that would leave other plants sterile, such that nobody could use the seeds-- but if that ever gets out, everything, every plant around it would die.

I'm not saying altering DNA in funny ways is great, but in some ways it is. If the ethics committees that are around would actually have some sort of power, we'd get somewhere with all this a lot quicker...

So much to say, so little time...
