Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Good news for genetically modified cotton

    Here is an update to an earlier post that chronicled a problem with genetically engineered cotton in China where it was necessary to use pesticides to control new pests.

    Skeptico reviews the problem, the possible reasons for it, and the fix being use in the U.S.

    American farmers, unlike those in China, are required to plant a refuge (a field of non-genetically engineered crops) to maintain the cotton bollworm pest population nearby and help prevent the pest from developing resistance to the genetically modified cotton.

    Lots more detail here.
