Message on GM crops is not safe

HERE we go again. There is no compelling evidence, we are told, that GM crops are dangerous.

The fact there is no compelling evidence that something is not safe does not mean that it is safe.

Even when there is compelling evidence, we are given the same message by government and some of the scientific community.

Even after Windscale, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl there "was no compelling evidence" that nuclear power stations are not safe.

The way to ensure an adequate food supply is to cut down on meat production, stop the growing of biofuels and develop sustainable energy.
