Dalton Denmark's curator insight, November 7, 2013 4:34 PM

this passage struck me as an amazing fundamental step towards genetically modified foods. as this passage solely explicits the fact that with genetically modified foods being grown we are able to have a better way to feed the world. this passage also contradicts most oppositions towards GMO's because the suggestion of australia resorting to these crops shows that they are able to be approved for sale meaning they pose no harm to humans and also no harm towards the environment, otherise they wouldnt be able to be sold at all especially not by an entire continent. this may also lead to a broader acceptance of genetically modified foods which by many is considred the future of agriculture including myself, and this is so because they are approved by a whole continent and will most likely appear more often in super markets which should boost the confidence of possible consumers about eating them. therefor this passage very well describes the coming of a very possible phenomenon known, as genetic modification.
