While this is a Daily Mail article, it would not surprise me if there was truth to it. I have developed food intolerances, which are often (but not always) brand related, for example Cadbury and Warburtons products, along with some supermarket own brand like Tesco and Sainsburys make me ill. It would not surprise me if these were the companies using GM poison.
The people behind this need to be strung up, and fed food laced with slow killing poison for the remainder of their days.

Nobody knows what effect GM food will have on humans as not enough research has been carried out.
Maybe it is perfectly safe but who knows? It may take 20 or 30 years for symptoms to show up and by then its too late.
I personally would prefer not to eat any GM food until it has been proven 100 percent safe and hope that our government will be held accountable if any adverse effects come to light.

So does this mean that eventually the whole worlds food chain will be contaminated by GM crops?
I am thinking that once modified versions of crops are introduced how could you ever revert back to the original natural ones if need be?
food scientists have compared the nutritional levels of modern crops with historic, and generally lower-yielding, ones. Today’s food produces 10 to 25 percent less iron, zinc, protein, calcium, vitamin C, and other nutrients,

The politicians are always talking up the virtues of the markets, how markets will determine who wins and who loses
then they sneak gm foods in through the back door because they know if it was clearly labelled that the markets would make sure it failed
people have a right to know where their food comes from

Going organic is really not as difficult as some folks think, After a few years of organic my health is better and I have found that it cost less than the plastic stuff most grocers provide. Nutrient dense foods fill you up in more ways than one. I invested in a juicer and about $30.00 per week in organic fruits and vegetables and have reaped the rewards of my investment. I have greater energy, the aches and pains subsided, my immune system is better than it has ever been, my eyesight has improved, my skin is healthier...the list goes on. My condition of health and happiness is not what the powers are looking for, in fact they fear it.
I think that food is being used against us. We know that world leaders, including bankers have used food as political leverage against us and other countries, now I think it is being used to cull the massive herds. What better way to control populations while making a few bucks from their ill health and bad food choices. The best way to defeat monsanto, syngenta and all the killers of nature is to never purchase processed food or any technology they promote.
