The comment I added to this petition

Re: Docket No. APHIS-2007-0044

While I am not opposed to genetically modified food plants and animals in principle, I am opposed to genetic modification for the purpose of making plants (or animals, for that matter) more or less vulnerable to proprietary chemicals, or in any way turning plants and animals into pieces of a factory system. We have seen over the last 60 years what chemical fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, and other methods of production (strip mining, plastics production, widespread use of antibiotics) have done to our health and environment.  Our regulatory agencies, including the USDA, need to be much more conservative in approving any of these methods.
