The usual global catastrophe crap, which the loving bio-tech industry is going to save us from, and please don't mention all those tests where the rats drop dead, or the stats that show the bio-tech industry's propaganda is a crock of equine fertiliser, or bring up Monsanto's legacy in Vietnam or Brofiscin in Wales.
Yeah right, professor. Because you're a scientist, I'm supposed to believe your words without question? GM crops are not safe and they are most certainly not 'green'.
