I would hate to find the goats hanging from the ceiling some morning.
Seriously, genetics is a wonderful thing. But when it comes to our food sources, I think we should worry. Not only do we not know enough long term effects on health. We don't know anything about the effects on the enviorment. Bio-engineering and genetists are only 2 yrs ahead of pests and diseases of grain producing plants, this means our food supply would be in grave danger if they could not come up with a resistant cultivar to some pests and diseases for just 1 year. This means corn ,wheat (especially) and soy beans plus some of the fruits and veggies we eat everyday. I think the more self sufficient you are the better off you will be. Ok sorry I will get off my soap box now.
