GE, it's a tool, use it where appropriate.

In the Guardian yesterday, a nice argument for using GE crops. It's brief, but to the point. We've got 25 years of data, showing no harm. It can be used to decrease the amount of insecticide and herbicide that get applied to food, it's better for the soil/land. I can understand people looking a little oddly at putting human genes in milk producing animals (though I don't necessarily oppose that) but seriously, why the opposition to putting potato genes into other potatoes?
