This kind of research could have grave consequences in the wrong hands, which often is exactly where they end up and nobody seems to ever be accountable.
What about the contamination of the ancient Mexican corn seeds. A truck full of genetically modified corn accidentally found its way right into the middle of it. We have the power to get rid of this abomination from our food. Never before have we had such powerful tools to connect and turn the tide on these unethical corporations. October 2010 is non-gmo month. Thousands of people can become activisits in the revolution against this. We can take back our food supply. At the top of the food chain our informed choices about what we buy can bring these multinationals to their knees in a very short time. Get informed and act now to take back our right to healthy food.
