Most food makers ban GMs survey
MOST of the UKs leading food manufacturers have removed, or are removing, genetically modified (GM) ingredients from their food products, according to a survey.
A new study by the environmental group Friends of the Earth claims that 24 of the 30 largest food producers are either GM-free or are going GM-free.
Meanwhile, two letter writers to The Daily Telegraph also appear to have joined the crusade against GM food.
One observes that her lupins and broad beans are normally alive with bees at this time of the year.
She suggests that nature is “so fragile we cannot afford to take a risk with it.”
