What do you think about this particular example? What do you think about genetic engineering in general?

    A great example of genetic modification put to use in the real world is golden rice. Their is a great wikipedia artical on golden rice but basically, their was a huge vitamin A problem in east asia, so scientists introduced the Beta carotene gene from carrots into rice. Beta carotene can be broken down into Vitamin A and absorbed easily. As far as i know golden rice is still in use today. The controversy's are fairly obvious. Religious supporters believe that we should not be "playing god" and tampering with natural food sources. Their is also the worry of long term medical consequences. @NathalyN
