The following is an excerpt.

Roger Beachy, a pioneer in the development of biotechnology in the United States, thinks more transparency would do a lot to ease consumers’ concerns about genetically modified foods.

But in an appearance at the Governors Ag Conference in Kearney on Tuesday, Beachy said transparency should come through the involvement of more university researchers in the high-tech improvement of food, not by labeling at food stores.

If labeling is allowed, poorly informed critics of genetically enhanced foods would use it “to demonize by labeling,” he said.
