The journal Nature has published a special issue focused on GM crops. The special issue titled “GM Crops: Promise & Reality” argues for a centered and rationale, evidence-based, and nuanced discussion on GM crops. As I have argued in this blog and elsewhere, we cannot blindly oppose or support any GM crop, rather we need to judge each technology based on its merits. This is in my mind the middle ground.
Anybody who unilaterally opposes or promotes this or any other technology, is in my opinion, doing a great disservice to society.
Here are some reactions by bloggers and commentators on the special issue of Nature.
