Fair enough. Although I have not seen anybody suggest that fermentation
technology was a concern. All the conversation I have seen has been
over agricultural crops.

Okay. I don't suppose you adhere to the idea that the "western" diet is
the cause of most diabetes then?

Yes. I have the rights. My house doesn't have rights. The technology
does not have rights either. I think this was just a word placement

I agree with you. And because, as you pointed out, the organisms are
jealously guarded and the glop is sterilized before being disposed of, I
am happy about fermentation technology because the technology is being
kept in its place. I am confident that I will not be finding it in my
refrigerator any time soon.
Should someone be allowed to work hard to produce a compound previously
not found in nature and then use it in such a way that traces of it can
be found in my bodily tissues? Do I have the right to not be subject to
that kind of intrusion?
