. It's nothing less than a miracle crop that requires fewer resources and produces greater yields than old-fashioned cotton. Most cotton farmers agree with me: I suspect that more than 90 percent of India's cotton famers take advantage of biotechnology.

Biotechnology
provides safer food in the quantities needed to feed the growing population. Unfortunately, advocates of outdated organic farming practices have convinced policymakers that they should oppose biotechnology until the technology is proven to cause no harm, a standard that is impossible to meet even for organic farming.

These self-appointed guardians of our food supply fight modern farming practices like biotechnology and irradiation—approaches to agriculture that might have stopped the spread of the deadly German affliction. They would have jumped all over a health crisis that implicates genetically modified crops,

our government has refused to approve biotechnology in food crops, in large part because political activists have created a phony controversy fueled by scientific ignorance.

The most common concerns, reasonably enough, centered on unexpected consequences and unanticipated side effects. Indeed, people seemed perfectly aware of the uncertainties surrounding nano-associated risks, but this hardly appeared to induce fear.
