"Labeling Bio-Engineered Foods Would Be a Disaster"
Interesting and informative article on bio-engineered food. One question, and maybe I just missed it, but what are the concerns of those who seem to be against bio-engineered food? Are some of their concerns valid?

To be honest, I did not present the concerns of those who question biotechnology. Perhaps I should have. It is an area where we should proceed with some caution. But governmental agencies in North America and Europe are watching this closely, as are any number of private watchdog groups.
