Genetically modified foods
I am writing here to begin a discussion about the relatively new technology that is genetically modified foods. I believe this is an issue that the general public knows very little about and that their lack of knowledge about genetically modified foods and crops is by design. The risks of releasing genetically modified crops into the environment are too high and too many. It would not be a proper GMO conversation without bringing up Mansanto who is the global leader in genetically modified organisms.
I'll begin the discussion with a link to a very good article from VanityFair in 2008 about Mansanto and their business practices. This is a good start to understand the scope of the problem and exactly what's at stake.
