GM mosquito trial: A dangerous precedent - Malaysiakini
excerpt from above:
Quote:
...Thus I believe this Malaysian trial, if approved, would be the first in the world. The fact that GM mosquitoes have been around for more than 10 years and the idea to use them to combat mosquito-bearing diseases has been around for much longer but yet no country has ever tried it indicates the extent of the fear that it may have unintended consequences. Don't let Malaysia be the world's guinea pig for a British firm which provides the GM mosquitoes - hoping for a commercial success.
