From: Wheeler, Cody S MVN - June '02

You scare me. When you talk of inserting foreign DNA into plants to grow a molecular product, the ecological problems are numerous. Research has already documented the genetic pollution of nonGMO cultivated crops and wild plants by nearby GMO crops. There is also some research showing the negative effects this has on various wildlife species. The research claiming the safety of these GMO crops is inadequate to convince me. This is a classic case of our technological capacity far surpassing the wisdom of the human race. Just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. I disagree that we even need these technologies. We can provide for our needs with our current resources if we use appropriate technology and wisdom. We can't just look at the profit margin as your company is doing. I am an ecologist, botanist, environmentalist, organic gardener, father, and husband who will someday have an organic farm. I will not, however, be on your list or produce or consume your products knowingly. I don't need your products and will not support you with my money. You may not pay attention to me and my views, but there are many people out there who agree with me and our impact will be felt.

Please revisit our site and read it all.
Read our mission statement at
We have nothing to do with food, nor does molecular farming.
Unfortunately for us, many people have a knee-jerk reaction to Genetic Engineering and the letters GMO.
GMO as we know it means tinkering with the food chain. We are against genetically engineering food. I do not want the genes of the Arctic Flounder { a fish } in my tomato.

But if you ask me if I want to see a cure for Gaucher's disease that costs $360,000 less than the $400,000 per patient per year it costs to treat now, I will say YES.
If you ask me if I want cheap Interleukin for Cancer patients, or cheap Interferon for Heart Disease patients, I will say YES.
If you ask me whether or not I would like all plastic to be fully biodegradable, I will say yes.
If you ask whether or not I want to see measles, which kills 8m + a year, eradicated from the African Continent, by using an Edible Vaccine, I will say YES.
The only purpose of our database is to enable the Environmentally SAFE growing of these new crops.

If there are sides here, We are on yours.

GMO is not just tinkering with the food chain. What you are doing is Genetically Modifying Organisms to produce something it normally would not. I am not just apposed to the possible health risks of consuming GMO food. I am also concerned with the the environmental damage that could result from from the accidental transfer of the genetic modification from your cultivated crop to nearby related wild plant species. You say you can grow these plants safely in contained systems. How can you guarantee that? There is also the moral and ethical questions related to patenting of genetically modified life forms. I believe that the bio-engineering industry has the moral and legal responsibility to prove that this technology is not dangerous and to protect the public from any dangers they create. If accidents happen, the industry should take full responsibility and perform full restitution. The industry's track record to date doesn't bode well for the future. Monsanto, Dow, Park-Davis, and other agro-chemical-pharmaceutical companies have failed to fully test and take responsibility for the safety of their products. In fact, independent farmers have been sued by the agro giants for copyright infringement because they were said to be saving genetically modified seeds from their crop for replanting. In fact, the farmers nonGMO crops had been contaminated by pollen drift from neighboring GMO crops. The pollen introduced the modified genes into the crop against the wishes of the farmers, yet the farmers were held responsible. Currently, if a farmer wants to grow organic or nonGMO crops, he has the burden of protecting his crops from contamination during cultivation, harvesting, transporting, and processing of the crop and proving that his crop is pure. That is wrong. Growing your crops in a greenhouse won't solve the problem of cross contamination somewhere in the process.
"Of one thing we at are certain. Whether or not you totally agree with it, partially agree with it or absolutely disagree with it, Molecular Farming of new, nonfood crops is coming and will happen.

We see the catalysts that will force it's acceptance already. "

These words really make me mad. They show only your self interest and lack of concern of the very people you claim to serve.

Hello again.

"Of one thing we at are certain. Whether or not you totally agree with it, partially agree with it or absolutely disagree with it, Molecular Farming of new, nonfood crops is coming and will happen.

We see the catalysts that will force it's acceptance already. "

These words really make me mad. Why? If you read them in the context in which they were written, and the reasons why we believe that the benefits of Molecular Farming will lead to a demand for the products. [ Stated in the lines following the above on the page ] we can't understand your rage.

They show only your self interest and lack of concern of the very people you claim to serve. We only want to try to enable ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE growing of something which will, we believe, be grown regardless of whether or not we exist.

LOOK at what we say. We want Environmental Safety. We repeatedly say so. It is our main reason for existing.

[ from the ''Database'' page ]

In order to protect the natural environment, we are looking for farmers who would be prepared to lease land, TUNNELS { e.g. Mushroom 'houses' }, OR GREENHOUSES for SAFE Molecular Crop production to Pharmaceutical Companies . See Mission Statement.
Ideally this would mean growing crops in isolation, either through growing "nonnative" crops, growing in contained greenhouses or finding locations 8+ km away from any similar crop to prevent cross pollination/contamination. This would also include cross pollination of related wild weeds. Please read the Canadian Govt. proposals at the end of the forum page.

[ from the ''ForPharma'' page ] The MAIN PURPOSE of this site is to enable BIOPHARMA./ PHARMA. COMPANIES and INDUSTRIAL CORPORATIONS to contact potential Molecular Farmers willing to grow molecular transgenic plants or to lease their land for their safe growing.

As Molecular Farming develops, a very wide diversity of site-type, in many different geographical and climatic conditions, will be needed. Those Companies which grow their Molecular crops in the most environmentally safe way, even if this means growing in a different country, will gain public respect and support for their biopharmaceuticals, edible vaccines and therapeutics.

[ from the Mission page ] If you have a contained Greenhouse or Mushroom tunnel we would see you as ideal If you could grow a crop that isn't related to any neighbouring food crop or local weed, e.g. grow flax or oilseeds in a grain growing region, or potatoes in a grass/dairy farm setting you could again be what this industry needs. Is your land surrounded by forests, or very sheltered from wind ? Again your land could be what some Biopharmaceuticals companies need to safely grow their transgenic nonfood crops.

As I said earlier, we are on the same side. Don't shoot the messenger after misreading the message.

Sincerely yours, Brian Marshall..

''I farm in an area which grows a lot of food crop. How could I possibly use your service ?''

Our Answer : - You could possibly grow a crop which hasn't been grown in your region, e.g. beans or peas in a corn area. You could grow a nonfood crop e.g. tobacco or a crop for oil or industrial polymers, or grow a molecular crop for fuel e.g. Hemp. All of this would, of course, depend on not being a danger to the surrounding environment, your being suitably trained, and on your ability to comply with the regulations and the law.
