    This is the same blather treating the ag biotech companies as evil adversaries rather than saviors of the universe. We will be unable to adequately feed future global populations > 10 billion without ag biotech. Spreading of misinformation by opponents of ag biotech does damage to the populations that need it most. Read the "Golden Rice" story in the NY Times of how Philippine mobs, goaded by anti-GMO forces, destroyed a test plot of rice engineered to produce essential vitamins. People would rater see their kids die of the known dangers of vitamin deficiencies rather than be exposed to the hypothetical hazards of GMO crops. No one was physically harmed by the small patch of wild GMO wheat and the problem was basically the hysteria drummed up by anti-GMO orgs. Well crafted regulations are fine but burdening people with excessive regulations will not be to anyone's benefit.

    Some of this vile anti-GMO mob ignorance may be stoked by shadowy agents covertly working for Monsanto's own seed rival(s) peddling low-tech, more conventional seeds! ...funfun..
