Thanks! Wonder if there are similar groups commenting on GMO crops... some of it certainly doesn't seem to make sense to me... but of course common sense doesn't = "scientific proof" that something is harmful... ie. cigarettes. :)

It is interesting to me that supposedly there is evidence creeping up way down at the protien level:

FOR sure we know that genes work via multi-level mechanisms which NOBODY fully understands... ie. we don't understand the full effects on the plant or consumer.

In fact, on the crop level (not getting into what people eat) GMO acceptance represents an acceptance as safe and understood of an area of science in it's infancy that no scientist claims to understand.

THis business accepted by some that plant breeding used for thousands of years = today's version of GMO is really ignorant IMHO... it would be interesting of there are any scientists around SI that understand this stuff would comment.
