Which company produced the Zyklon B for the gas showers in Nazi Germany? IG Farben aka Bayer.
Which company produced Agent Orange for the Vietnam war? You guessed right, MONSANTO.
Now Bayer may buy Monsanto and the world may enjoy their consolidated power.
For lack of knowledge people are destroyed.
Expect a backlash when meddling with nature. Giving companies and or the government the 'authority' and trust to perform such interference means being bound by its consequences, terms and conditions.
