how can you read that little print. I guess I'm getting old.
No resistance to bt. And before I would trust the people working on
gmo's I would want 20 or 30 years of carefully, carefully monitored
research before I would allow it out into the real world. But that's
not what we are going to get, we are going to get quick turn around
for quick profit. And I don't want to hear from anyone saying 'the
government forces the chemical companies to fully test their
product.' If you do, I have some real estate to sell you. And anyone
who has ever read a seed catalogue or listened to a seed salesman
knows, these characters are worse than used car salesman.
No matter what potential good, the potential bad is a lot worse.
This is something that there must be extreme caution with. I think
its called the precautionary principle.
