Sir; It was not clear from your editorial of February 16 whether you also believe that GM foods are "the silver bullet that will feed the world's starving millions". Don't worry, this is not a complaint from one of the crackpot fringe' which you also mention, but I hope that you and your readers are well aware that there is plenty of food already to feed the starving millions'. No one starves today because there is a shortage of food in the world. They starve, sadly, through poor distribution. The benefit' of GM crops, with their increased yields, has nothing to do with feeding the poor. The cynics might argue it has a lot more to do with feeding the rich.
