It is all very well for the Daily Mail to state that PC or anyone for that matter is right to reject GM foods. But, there is scientific evidence that states: the employment of GM i.e modified foods will help too solve the dire  problem of starvation in Africa and elsewhere.Now I don't  know about you, but I know which avenue I would prefer to venture down.

What "scientific evidence," exactly?  I think the article makes it quite clear that the alleged benefits of GM foods have been grossly exaggerated.  I for one am proud to stand with HRH the Prince of Wales--your future King.

You don't like maize, Theodore? It's the original GM food, made by the Amerindians in Mesoamerica in what has been described as mankind's first and greatest successful feat of genetic engineering. Maize is also highly nutritious, tasty, and colorful.

I'm pretty sure maize is not what Prince Charles is talking about...

Of course it's not, but our resident half-wit is incapable of seeing the obvious!

Selective breeding has its drawbacks too....

A 'good solution' (to my mind) is too keep 'wild and nearly wild' reserves while going with the 'best we can breed OR engineer for the 'main production' lines...

Local example, I plant 'heirloom' varieties of tomatoes and of okra, but buy most of my meal and flour from folks who are using hybrids and other GM stocks.....
