Kurt at Resource Insights connects two recent stories: British discoveries of the effects of genetically modified organisms on wildlife, and US Dept. of Agriculture admissions that it’d kept secret “contamination of corn seed in the United States with an unapproved biotech variety over the last four years.” Kurt draws two conclusions:
The accidental contamination once again proves that there is really no effective way to segregate genetically modified crops from those that are not. It also shows that the promoters of GM foods are not interested in transparency. I wonder why, if their crops are so good for us, they don’t want us to know anything about them?
