This sounds most important to me. There is something we might not have thought
to be a direct and beneficial consequence of GMOs : in a near futur, they will
need one human behind each plant, to prevent her from reproducing and spoiling
the neighbours crops, or from  infringing the biotech moguls'patents.
An unexpected solution to unemployment which could lead us to turn to pro-GMOs
