Over on Twitter Magdalena Plotczyk (@) posted a striking photo of an anti-GMO poster from Lausanne, Switzerland. The top part of the poster translates as, “‘After GMO corn, GMO children?'”
As readers of this blog know, I do have concerns about the eventual production of genetically modified people using rapidly evolving genetic modification/gene editing technology such as CRISPR.
In fact, I’ve written an entire new book on this, GMO Sapiens. I hope you’ll read it. However, as you’ll see in the book, I’m not so concerned about GMO plants and foods in a general sense. I also do not see that GMO people or as I refer to them in the book, GMO sapiens, directly follow from GMOs in the plant world.
I think the bottom part of the poster translates roughly as, “No to unlimited reproductive medicine”.
Here’s the tweet.
