Chicago: Ethics and Biotechnology? An Odd Pair??

Spent the weekend with folks from the BioETHICS conference in Chicago. They put together an amazing array of informational workshops and discussions exploring the ethics of ag biotechnology. I learned a lot from the farmers present, many of whom had been biotech farmers who were now outspoken critics. Among them was one farmer who discovered widespread health problems with his livestock after starting them on GMO feed. --Anna
