GM crops are about farmers’ ownership of what they do, what they grow. They’re also about consumers’ safety but I’ve written before about how I think that’s a distraction. There’s not yet any robust evidence of a health risk from GM food. But there’s growing evidence of a risk to ecosystems (see the monarch butterfly, declining when Roundup Ready crops are sown). Now, here’s evidence of a risk to farmers’ rights to make choices about their farms.
