Good point. The pests might evolve or become extinct as a result of a plant's ability to repell or kill it. Under chaos theory that could have effects somewhere else in the biosphere.
Now, answer this. You are a human and chances are that you have received medicines or treatments some time in your life. In light of your approach to making plants resistant to diseases, what do you think about all the new medicines that prolong life, increase the quality of life and enable people to be alive now that otherwise would have been dead before they reached adolescence?
