- The growing drug problem down on the pharm: biopharming



Egad! Rather than just being a risk, contamination from biopharming would seem to be an inevitability—IF the technology is allowed to go forward under current guidelines. Do we really want hormones, vaccines, and other drugs in our morning bowl of corn flakes?

It may not be reasonable to say that biopharm crops should be banned, but it would certainly be reasonable to say that they should be confined to greenhouses and other environments that can be tightly controlled—just like other drug labs.
