"Misguided public policies have seriously restricted research on, and applications of, genetic engineering in agriculture. Miller and Conko analyze why and how this has occurred. They point out the danger that the present unwarranted regulatory oppression will become the norm, and they make a strong case for drastic change in present policies. Their call for policies based on realistic risk-benefit considerations needs to be heard loudly by those responsible for the present fiasco."-Paul D. Boyer, Emeritus Professor University of California, Los Angeles, Co-Winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
Describes how misguided activism and government policies are squandering potential advances in biotechnology.
