Abstract:

The antagonism of extremists toward the new biotechnology, or gene-splicing, applied to the production of innovative new drugs, and gene therapy for life-threatening diseases, agriculture, or anything else is based on the "Big Lie" that biotech applied to agriculture and food production is unproven, unsafe, untested, unregulated, and unwanted despite scientific evidence to the contrary.
