Interesting Interview re: Genetic Engineering   Leave a comment

I haven’t really kept up much with the debate over genetically modified food and Monsanto’s dealings with the issue. But I of course know all about Monsanto’s history with manufacturing PCBs and the chemical’s connections to NHL. So I’m not predisposed to give them the benefit of the doubt.

But the Huffington Post put up an interview with a scientist who’s been working on the technology and is trying to bring some clarity to the issue. It’s good, I think, and as someone who follows the science and research in the battle against cancer, it got me thinking. The researcher is Kevin Folta and he teaches at the University of Florida. He says:

“Anytime a scientist comes out and says something positive about technology the first thing that comes is, ‘Well you must work for Monsanto.’ None of us or most of us never got a dime from Monsanto, yet we’re always accused of being on their side because we’re on the side of science.”
