skepticism is not a bad thing.
on the other hand, science is not a bad thing either.
which brings me to the statement:
"Now the FDA is going to allow genetically processed and treated birds starting 2010 what are they being treated with?"
to the best of my knowledge, there is no such thing as "genetically processed" or "genetically treated"
and because anything is anyway "genetically" anythinged is 100% unrelated to "what they're being treated with." an uncomfortable truth is the fact that a chicken genetically enhanced to be immune to avian flu will require _less_ "treatment" of any sort in the process of being raised for market. want less antibiotics? - how's "zero need or use" grab ya?
I trust that you do realize that the process of "natural selection" is at its basis "genetic engineering" - the best of the gene pool survives and propagates.
the much more controversial human directed "genetic engineering" in fringe research such as taking genes from a plant and stuffing them into an animal are well worth a very healthy dose of skepticism. but Purdue just ain't that far along.
