Some new developments on the GMO front:
'Monsanto Protection Act' called 'outrageous,' dangerous
'Monsanto Protection Act': Activists have claimed Monsanto's GMO crops are harmful.
This piece of legislation enables Monsanto to plant and grow GMO crops to either prove or to disprove their safety without having to spend millions in legal fees or spend decades in a court room in order to perform scientific research.
So it appears that the anti side of the GMO argument are the ones who oppose research into the safety of GMO crops. I suspect that they are afraid honest research will undermind their anti GMO agenda.
