I haven't had time to read all the recent posts discussing ecological
effects of GMOs, but I would like to toss out an idea that I don't think
has been mentioned.
Should there be extra precautions before widescale release of GMOs into
their centers of origin ?
Forexample... while GM soybeans and corn have already been
planted on millions of acres in North America... I believe that very few
acres of these GM crops have been planted in their centers of
origin (Asia and Central America respectively).
If developed countries decide that there is a serious risk involved with
planting GMOs in their center of origin... do they really have any power
to stop Mexican farmers from planting fields of terminator corn
adjacent to wild teosinte that includes unique and valuable germplasm ?
