From the editorial page of today’s Wall Street Journal: “[A]ctivists are, with some success, using misinformation to scare those countries most desperately in need of what biotechnology can offer. The World Health Organization estimates that five million children die each year from malnutrition. Millions more suffer ailments such as blindness from vitamin deficiencies. Bioengineered crops could go a long way toward addressing these problems. Too bad some prefer to play politics.” (“Bad-mouthing biotech,” Wall Street Journal, 1/11/01)
