KUNMING, China – Zeng Yawen's outdoor laboratory in the terraced hills of southern China is a trove of genetic potential — rice that thrives in unusually cool temperatures, high altitudes or in dry soil; rice rich in calcium, vitamins or iron.

"See these plants? They can tolerate the cold," Zeng says as he walks through a checkerboard of test fields sown with different rice varieties on the outskirts of Kunming, capital of southwestern China's Yunnan province.

I'm sorry whatever way they spin this I am not buying it. Our foods are already being tampered with gods knows what, this will only open the door for further abuse.

While it may seem like a good idea now, so were pesticides back when they were introduced. The ramifications of altering the DNA of crops could be hazardous. The world is going to push this as another great idea and only a couple of years down the line will we see articles prop up about the side effects of consumption of these crops.

Here is a link to research on various GMO studies. It is well worth every moment anyone cares to invest.
