Honestly I'm on the fence believing any of it. And honestly PE genetics are trashed. They don't perform like they did 15 or so years ago. ( give or take a few years). PE6 was a hybrid, attempting to improve the genetics.
I like albinos, but really I haven't seen a true albino yet. If it produced a spore print, it isn't albino. Its Luecistic. And that's just a color change.
I won't grow PE either. I might grow PE6.
I'm assuming anyone who thinks progating this is perfectly fine, also has no issue with GMOs or lab grown meat.
My issue with GMOs has much less to do with consumption, and much more to do with the business/legal side of things.
I'm not entirely sure what the anti-GMO people are afraid of... except for the actual change within the chromosome, the only other difference in the fruit/veggie is visual, and nutritional.
We don't absorb genes and incorporate them into ours, so that's not an issue. And as long as the genetic change doesn't produce arsenic or something, we're good. If a GMO apple has too much sugar, don't eat it.
If the issue is the effect on soil, water table, etc. Then that's a discussion of farming practices, regulations, and even population.
Lab grown meat, not for me...
Do you have an opinion on the use of CRISPR to cure blindness, cancer/tumors, HIV, etc.?
