Well, opposition to GMO crops is one more sacred cow which just got gored.

I'm reminded of the opposition to irradiated food- did that ever really go away?

All the food we eat is already genetically modified. We just did it the slow way. I'm pretty sure tangelos weren't in the garden of eden.

I still protest the GMO business model. It's far too easy for the worlds largest corporations to end up controlling agriculture.

Oh yes, all those fears about the 'DNA of the food being changed', into, presumably, either a form of DNA that is poisonous in itself, or one that will somehow boot the dead organism back to life so that the altered DNA can then start the production of evil toxins.

They aren't even buying that anymore on the Jamie Oliver forum, (and they can usually be counted on to swallow any anti-foodtech stuff without chewing).

Well, we need to fix that.

If you read the speech, it's interesting to see how opposition to GMO's has itself caused the GMO business model to be exclusively monopolized by the largest corporations.

I protest the patent system, not the GMO business model. Companies should be able to grow, breed, and sell the seeds/plants. They shouldn't be able to claim ownership on a crop that didn't come direct from their facilities because they own the very DNA that plant and its offspring have.

Good god, those comments are atrocious. Anti-GMO activists are annoyingly persistent. Back when Prop 37 was on the ballot and almost every newspaper opposed it, the online versions were absolutely full of people accusing the newspapers of being in Monsanto's pockets.
