46. News flash, everything is made of chemicals.
A single oxygen atom is a chemical. If you can find it on the periodic table of the elements, it's a chemical. So if you think "chemical" is some scary boogeyman of a word that's going to frighten me, you got another thing coming.

Nor do I think Africa is any more ripe for 'experimentation' than any other nation, including my own. I would be perfectly happy with this stuff in stores, just like irradiated foods and all the other advances that have been demonized with concern trolling disguised as psuedo-fear about progress.

We're progressive about human rights, political and economic issues, the envirionment, but oh no, not scientific progress.. what the hell.

I'd eat this stuff. Just like I used to wear a seatbelt before studies proved they save lives. I'd feed GMO crops to not onlt myself, but my kids too. Irradiated food, whatever.
