Thursday, July 28, 2005GM crops created superweed, say scientists
Anyone who has read this blog on a consistent basis realizes by now that I am against GM crops and the following is one of the reasons: Modified genes from crops in a GM crop trial have transferred into local wild plants, creating a form of herbicide-resistant "superweed".
Although there is enough information to determine that GM crops are unsafe and have many side effects, the US Occupation Authority has imposed legislation, which could have detrimental and lasting impact on Iraqis farmers and Iraq’s ability to produce food for the Iraqi people. There should be some type of general ethical standards that can prevent these types of impositions by dominant societies on less developed societies. This imposition is nothing but pure unadulterated evil no matter which way one look at the situation.
