Earlier in the week I wrote an article about genetically engineered food, and why I thought it was a bad idea. I questioned the use of science to justify the promotion of Golden Rice, and asserted that there were other, more promising ways of providing nutrition to those who need it.
The article struck a cord for some and sent others into long winded tirades about my use of quotations, my suspicion of “devil science,” and the lack of data to support the idea that “low-tech” solutions such as kitchen gardens and agroforestry are cost effective.
But one of the most interesting criticisms of the article was the assertion that people who are hungry will eat anything and denying them genetically modified rice is selfish and inconsiderate.
