The processes in genetic engineering can be understood. It is not voodoo science.

so what is you ...

I have a distrust of the need for genetic splicing of different species, in particular that of animal in to vegetable matter etc and it's long term effects on the health of living creatures, not just humans.  This is an area where science cannot predict results with reliablity, as witnessed by a couple of recent studies in to the creation of toxic compounds in whales by the ingestion of assorted medicines found in waste. This problem is only just starting to be addressed in science and I do NOT trust any industry funded research papers as recent studies in both Nature and the Lancet have not been kind to the "oversights" and outright manipulation of clinical studies by pharmaceutical companies. If anyone is stupid enough to believe Monsanto, a known dirty player legally is above falsifying research data then they deserve all they get.  

I am all in favour of cheap good quality food, and that can be achieved by improved agricultural methods and the use of standard genetic improvement programs such as selective breeding rather than by gene splicing outside of the phylum. It would be far wiser to bring the human population expansion under control, and reduce the population by attrition than to allow GM foods to be grown.

I think it is unreasonable fear.

Natural mutations, or designed mutations.........................still a mutation.

and once in stomach, it becomes muss.

Its the genes.

The process and the function of the manipulated genes can be understood,.


Nothing can stop bio technology, gene engineering.

These are in the fore fronts of science and will continue and very popular areas of industry and research.

can you describe the risk?

which part of the process produce risk?

You think that science can do what took the time of mankind's whole existence. To be produced in a 10 year plan ?
