We Need Biotech To Feed The World

Norman Borlaug, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 for his accomplishments in agriculture, offers his thoughts on genetically improved foods in today’s Wall Street Journal:
· “The citizens of affluent nations may be able to pay more for food produced by ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ methods. The chronically undernourished people of impoverished nations cannot. They also cannot afford to have the promise of new agricultural technology nipped in the bud, as many anti-biotechnology activists wish.”
· “I believe the world will be able to produce the food needed to feed the projected population of about 8.3 billion in the year 2025. I also believe that it can be done with little negative impact on the environment. But it cannot be attained without permitting the use of technologies now available, or without research to further improve and utilize new technologies, including biotechnology and recombinant DNA.”
