Genetically Engineered Chickens, Lifesaver or Natural Disaster?


As the fear of the Avian Flu spreads around the world, scientists are working on developing a genetically engineered chicken that may be resistant to the flu. Presently, almost all poultry in Asia is being slaughtered to control the possible outbreak of this potentially devastating pandemic. Greenpeace and other organizations are against any genetically engineered food. They feel that natural food is the only food to be available. So do we avoid all genetically engineered food and maybe slaughter all chickens in the impoverished Asian nations, cutting off a vital food source and risk mass starvation and flu epidemics, or work to create a modified version of the chicken that can save millions of lives to protect against any possible contamination of nature?

We compare the two viewpoints in this post.
