@ GeorgesPlane- You bring up some interesting points as well, but caution should always be used when playing the role of creator. I am not totally against GMO food products; I just don't think we have the institutional capacity or regulatory framework necessary to manage transgenic products. I ask you this: What happens if transgenic species escape into the local environment? What happens if they cause more harm than good? What happens when we create a food system where we are reliant on a few multinational corporations to bioengineer global food supplies? These are all very serious questions with potentially serious consequences.
My position is that we should proceed with caution. Requiring initial genetic testing along with up to date chemical analysis laboratory testing is not too much to ask. At some point, humans need to start considering the consequences before taking action.
