Welll, at least those aren't food.  What about genetically engineered crops?  Now, I am not knee jerk adverse to science and engineering -- but can we really trust the likes of Archer Daniels Midland or Monsanto to always do the right thing -- for our health and well being?  ???

GMOs deserve close scrutiny, but most fears miss the real threats. The lack of genetic diversity over such a large range and the monopoly that a few large corporations hold on the seed for all the worlds food crops.

Nope, don't really care.

All of these will be self correcting, in the long run.  

Just hoping that human beans continue to make it to the long run.
