In millennia of starvation for the world's poorest, there have often been calls for an end to this most unfair of income inequality's scourges. Whether that starvation is a lack of enough calories or of the nutritional balance necessary to maintain health

What can be said about the former Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson is if you were to look up incompetent in the dictionary, you'd probably see a picture of Paterson glaring back at you.. He took pig-headed-ignorance to a whole new level. People viewed his comments about badgers ‘moving goalposts’ or anti-fracking campaigners winning the arguments because of their ‘exciting clothes and banners’ as the lines of a stand-up comic. There is also the matter of him cutting funding for flood defenses resulted in the worst flooding of farmland in England for sixty years, due to his staggering incompetence, arrogance, bias and ignorance and as for the badger cull at nearly £7000 a badger he would of been better hiring a Russian hitman who would of done it at half the cost and certainly would of avoided the surreal incident of van full of dead badgers crashing into bus stop. It is safe to say Neil Young does have the moral high ground - though why he dated this horrible Canadian Barmaid's Auntie Pat which does bring him down a bit in my estimation.
So I think it is safe

Instead of opposing GMO crops, he wrote, Young should “use his star power to convince the NGO community to do the right thing and support giving the developing world the GMO tools it needs to feed its growing, and tragically malnourished, populations.”

The problem isn’t corporations, because GMO products could save millions of lives. “It’s the environmentalists who are doing real harm,” said Right Hon. Owen Paterson, a Conservative Member of Parliament for North Shropshire in the UK .

You Sir, are just a tool for the Corporations.

When one is altering the natural way that foods were made and this is something that is going in one's body to in essence become the person, then there is no wiggle room and guessing. After all you are what you eat.

There was a time, before we took over their land for monoculture, that people grew their own crops. Among the mix of food crops were nutritious weeds - or what we would call weeds - often high in vitamin A. Everything was eaten.

Then we told them about our superior form of agriculture, where weeds are not allowed to take up space. Maybe we can't go back, but we could give these children cheap, natural forms of vitamin A NOW. Golden rice, from what I have read, doesn't even do what it claims to do.
