Environmental charity Greenpeace has prompted an investigation by the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and outrage from netizens after issuing a report claiming that a US-Sino research project tested genetically modified (GMO) "golden rice" on 6-8 year-old children from poor, rural Chinese families. Golden rice, a new type of rice that contains beta carotene, is intended to alleviate vitamin A deficiency. One of the Chinese researchers, Shi-an Yin, has been suspended from work pending further investigation by the CDC.
Instead of putting genetically modified foods through proper trials as consumers have been demanding for years, it appears the United States Department of Agriculture in alliance with the Chinese government have instead chosen to secretly test their latest GMO rice on young Chinese children. What’s particularly interesting is the fact that the agencies decided they even needed to test the rice, after claiming that GMO rice and all other GM creations are virtually identical to natural foods.
Greenpeace says that the studies are taking place on roughly 24 children aged between six and eight years old. It has also been said that the parents likely were completely unaware or misinformed.
(Reuters) - China's health authorities will investigate allegations that genetically modified (GMO) rice was tested on Chinese children as part of a Sino-U.S. research project, state media said on Tuesday.
Design: Children (n = 68; age 6–8 y) were randomly assigned to consume GR or spinach (both grown in a nutrient solution containing 23 atom% 2H2O) or [2H8]β-carotene in an oil capsule.
Seventy-two children each will take two meals, breakfast containing 13C10-RAc dose (0.5mg in 0.2g oil capsule) and lunch containing spinach containing 1 mg ß-C (along with white rice), or Golden Rice containing 0.5mg ß-C (along with light colored vegetables), or ß-C oil capsules containing 0.5 mg ß-C in 0.2g oil (along with white rice and light colored vegetables) on the first day of the study. Blood samples will be collected at 1 3, 7, 14, and 21 days after the study doses.

No different from the UN testing irradiated fish from Fukushima on the Children of Cambodia.
They're all evil as.
And they're all in cahoots. Russia, China and the US. Play like they're enemies when really they are all puppets.
