Firstly to the little lady who nearly ran me over on the road today...you know who you are, big SUV, never seen anything like it, black and more obnoxious than a Hummer...when you are on the merge lane, and I am on the main lane it is you who slows down and waits for the cars to pass before you politely and carefully merge onto the road..you do not get to honk at the cars who are in the correct lane to get out of your way...and what the hell do you need a monster truck for??
Ok folks it's GM food debate time:
first some quotes from todays news about it:
- Revealed: health fears over secret study into GM food(Independent)
- The Guardian has a special report on GM Food
- Toxic pollen from widely planted, genetically modified corn can kill monarch butterflies, Cornell study shows
"Syngenta admitted this week that, for over four years, it "mistakenly" sold hundreds of tons of an experimental corn seed not yet approved for human consumption.
Contaminating the world's food supply is becoming a habit for big agribusiness.
Back in 2000, a genetically-modified (GM) corn called StarLink was discovered in Taco Bell tacos. Manufactured by Aventis, StarLink was modified to be more insect-resistant through the insertion of a bacterial toxin into the corn's DNA. When eaten, however, it can provoke intense allergic reactions, including anaphylactic shock...
In 2002, Friends of the Earth released a report documenting how StarLink and other banned GM-corn brands were sent as food "aid" to poor countries by USAID and the World Food Programme."Liza Grandia
