Headline

Three-quarters of Brits would reject US 'frankenfoods'

Comment

It is not surprising therefore the strong emotional response to the possibility of "frankenfood" from the US flooding into the UK and elsewhere. Man-made efforts to control nature will always be controversial, however we need to find ways to sustainably feed 9 billion mouths by 2050. Part of this need will be met by initiatives to waste less food that we currently produce AND reduce per capita consumption of meat and dairy in countries that already consume too much food. We do need to support better crop yields that use less water and land. Genetic modification of plants can be one of the solutions. However, I do not think the "Monsanto" way (a non-transparent system that benefits only a few) is the right approach.
