A Washington Times editorial provides us with a cautionary tale, referring to the “public relations jihad” against genetically improved foods “by extremist environmental groups all across Europe.” The Times adds that “there is not a shred of evidence that genetically modified foods pose a threat to either humans or the environment.” This holy war is being fought here as well as in Europe. Without additional such voices of reason, the lunatic fringe may eventually have its way in the United States.
