That's an extra-ordinary amount of effort to get people to swallow that crap they force down our throats.
What i hate about GM foods is that there is really very little way we can monitor what goes in them, i mean - can you imagine them sticking an entire genetic sequence on the back of a pack of chicken breasts?
The system is too open, i get the nasty feeling we're all going to be turned into lab rats for human experimentation...

Your having food shortages ? ohhh people are starving ? oh they are so poor they cannot afford food ?
Well, the UK government have a solution.
Genetically Modified food. yep, they manafactured this latest price / fuel / food crisis AFTER making thousands of farmers here in the UK landless and too poor to farm....
But they have a classic PRS campaign..
You'll accept genetically modified food or you will go hungry.
What is in this crap that they are so desperate for millions of normal people to be eating ?
Monsanto however AT THEIR STAFF CANTEEN DON'T SERVE GM FOOD.
Telegraph: GM foods

A spokesman at the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said the department welcomed public debate on the issue.
"The nation as a whole, not just government, must work on all the threats which CPRE identifies," he said.
"However, we do not share CPRE's doomsday scenario. The countryside is in constant change.
"Many of the problems we see are the result of the countryside attracting hundreds of thousands of people moving there because of the attractive environment and high quality of life which it offers. They cannot all be wrong."

Sorry I have to disagree. After my 18 months work experience with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Affairs in UK I can say that the organic farming is encouraged by providing special benefits for the farmers involved. The GM crops are heavily regulated , so for the moment I guess we are in no danger. And by the way , most of the food we have on the table is already GM - by artifficial selection along the centures.
