Come on. Examples are great. But let's keep 'em a little topical.
I don't know how else to explain it. Science is always advancing. This expansion of our knowledge means that some things that we once believed to be true (or safe) are actually false (or harmful). Just about everything right now says that cloning is fine, but that doesn't mean that will be the case in 40 years.
Food is required for people to live. So, if you're going to fuck with food in new ways so Agribusinesses can make more money, at least label it so I can choose an alternative if that's how I swing.
