Sowing GM future
• It is sad to hear that our supposed 'Environmental Protection' Authority has given the go-ahead for Teagasc to carry out trials of genetically modified (GM) potatoes.
The impact of GM organisms is unpredictable and irreversible. If something goes wrong and people, animals or plants are adversely affected, it will be too late.
The very nature of GM monoculture production is detrimental to biodiversity, which is the basis for the health of the environment and the people living in it.
