The example of Golden Rice is important because it highlights a point often lost in angry din of the GM debate: genetic modification is a technology which can be safely used as so many other technologies are used. It is not essential that a giant corporation be the sole provider of this technology and hence gain monopoly control over the crop. Biotechnology can also be developed by research organizations, governments, non-profits etc. and the benefits of this technology can be reaped by farmers and consumers alike.
