We d also like to give a hat-tip to Caroline Scott-Thomas, whose article on genetic engineering is online at FoodNavigator.
In it, Scott-Thomas discusses how we must remember that genetic engineering is an issue of technology and should not be an ideology.
Genetic engineering shouldn t be a political issue ¦Plants can be engineered in many ways, and their potential benefits should be balanced with an assessment of their potential detriments no matter what the technology.
ACSH's Dr. Ruth Kava wholeheartedly agrees: Sometimes it seems that being anti-genetic engineering takes on overtones of religious fervor. But the use of a technology should be evaluated based on science, not belief.
