Great article Stu, I recall ABIC 2014 in Saskatoon where we hosted Ingo Potrykus, co-inventor of Golden Rice. I had the opportunity to sit with Dr. Potrykus and asked him what was the most important issue facing global adoption of GMO technologies. Without hesitation he indicated that the Cartagana protocol was without a doubt the biggest barrier to the advancement of global food security on the planet, the precautionary principle, while useful in theory has no worthy place in the advancement of science in this case.
