how is that not genetic engineering?
Again, show me natural cross breeding of animal and plant. Nature has limits, which GE violates, sometimes to the detrement of mankind. 35 died when GE was used to "enhance" bacteria that produced tryptophane several years ago. The result was a brand new chemical structure that killed 35 and injured over a 1,000.

It should also be noted that the company making this version of l-Tryptophan changed its filtration procdures also. The incience of EMS was inversely proportional to the amount of activated charcoal filtration. As far as I have read, no tests were done to see if using non-modified bacteria produced problems when the filtration was reduced.
