The problem with that idea is that all of those new technologies are NOT
carefully screened for safety by governments. Certainly not the US
government! The US Government stand has been that all these GE organisms,
both plant and animal, are "essentially identical" to the original, and
therefore extensive testing is not required. In fact, essentially NO
controlled, supervised, long term, testing is done on the vast majority or
new GE organisms that are being released into the environment.
And in a number of cases, there have already been incidents of these GE
organisms causing harmful results. A few of the herbicide resistant plants
have, despite strong assurances it would not happen from the producers,
crossed with wild forms of the plants to produce super weeds. More than
one or two of those containing their own built in pesticides have been
shown to be responsible for massive kills of beneficial insects and in one
case, has been linked to kills of birds.
These things are NOT safe. They need to be banned NOW! And any new
developments must be very carefully tested in laboratories over long term
testing prior to ANY release into the environment.
