“[…] Dolly the sheep represented a novel type of cloning that is capable of generating virtually limitless copies of adult animals. These copies are not necessarily genetically engineered, but the process of cloning does allow for genetic tweaking to, for instance, generate cows that produce more milk.
It is this type of GM clone that tends to worry anti-GM lobbyists. But the fact is that millions of tons of GM food (mostly crops) have been consumed by people around the world for more than a decade. As far as is known, no one has ever died or even got sick from eating GM food. Why are so scared of GM ingredients, while cheerfully accepting far greater hazards?”
