AgBioWorld Foundation Celebrates First Anniversary with 1,000th Listserv

The AgBioWorld Foundation is pleased to announce that it will celebrate
the first birthday of the AgBioView listerv by releasing this, the 1,000th
listserv message.

It has been an interesting year for agricultural biotechnology, with many
important issues impacting the world's developing countries, and everyone
-- scientists, farmers, students -- who has participated in the AgBioView
discussion should be commended for their efforts in forming a rational,
science-based debate.

AgBioView participants have also been instrumental in answering questions
people commonly ask about agbiotech. For example, see "31 Critical
Questions In Agricultural Biotechnology" at
http://www.agbioworld.org/articles/critical.html, or "Response to GM Food
Myths" at http://www.agbioworld.org/articles/myths.html.

Over 3,000 scientists the world over have signed the AgBioWorld
Foundation's "Declaration in Support of Agricultural Biotechnology,"
including five Nobel laureates, as well as winners of other prestigous
awards such as the World Food Prize, the U.S. Presidentís National Medal
of Science and the Wolf Prize. Most recently Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder
of Greenpeace, added his support by signing the declaration.

this year will be as productive as the last one.
