I'm not a big fan of "Frankencrops", but let's be real. We have 7 BILLION people on Earth and most experts suspect it will hit at least 9 billion by the time it plateaus.

Given limited land, weather problems, water concerns and increasing overpopulation, how do we NOT turn to "genetic engineering" in crops without accepting that an increasing percentage of the population will starve? Are you willing to make the choice between "Frankencorn" and more starvation deaths?
