Abstract

“The campaign of fear now being waged against genetic modification is based largely on fantasy and a complete lack of respect for science and logic. Genetic modification can reduce the chemical load in the environment, and reduce the amount of land required for food crops.” Dr. Patrick Moore, ecologist and co-founder of Greenpeace, March 2001.
