Agent Orange

"Nothing that you do in science is guaranteed to result in benefits for mankind. Any discovery, I believe, is morally neutral, and it can be turned either to constructive or destructive ends. That’s not the fault of science”
- Dr. Arthur W. Galston, whose research led to the creation of Agent Orange
i recently learned what agent orange was and the effects it had people. this doctors quote makes me think of all the different scientific discoveries we have made over the years which have caused such controversy. its just makes me think on how far we have come and if we should look at some things from a neutral point of view before making our opinions. food for thought. eat up!
