BIOTECH, and other Euphemisms, Power Words, GE Rice

I agree with Doreen, and I might have been wrong.
It might be that this particular
Rice may be GE.

I also realized that this fact only supports
my main point even further.

Whether or not the experimental
rice was GE doesn't matter. If it is GE, I don't think
it's being grown on a mass scale. (and if it
is, someone please let me know)

The genetic engineering industry wants to
obfuscate what has been genetically engineered with
what has been created with conventional crossbreeding.
They want to lump drugs, conventional crossbreeding,
and GE all together and call all these things "Biotech."

I think their strategy won't work.

Actually the rice mentioned in this article is genetically engineered.
